This yacht has just gone through a complete overhaul. New base coat and bottom paint will be good for years. Brand new standing rigging will keep her sailing for many crossing to come.
There may be no more than a handful of sailboats in recent history that can be called milestones in that they significantly influenced the way in which boats were designed, built and sailed. Without a doubt, the Cal 40 is one design that fits this elite group. The boat is balanced well, and steering with a tiller is not difficult. The cabin trunk is low and allows excellent visibility forward with wide side decks and a large foredeck for handling headsails.
This yacht is tried and true to Tahiti and back. It has a beefed up mast with an extra spreader, larger gauged rigging, and extra weight near the keel. The yachts has just been hauled out and sanded down to the barrier coat, the new bottom paint will keep you in the water for another 10 years. The sails are lightly used and in excellent conditions and she boats a new motor with only 57 hours! It's a perfect yacht for safely cruising the Hawaiian waters and beyond.
