Broker's Comments

The CAL 36 was designed as a fast ,blue water cruiser/ racer, able to qualify for all the ocean races of the time. These boats rarely become available, have a reputation for ease of handling and were built to last.

When I visited this version I was struck by the often heard phrase, 'they don't build them like they used to'. This boat gives that impression of a generously laid up hull, with neat woodwork throughout the interior. The cockpit is spacious and deep and moving forward was effortless to access the foredeck and anchor locker. There are plenty of halyard winches at the mast, which compliment a tidy running rigging plan. Down below there are six berths, two of which can be found in the separate forward cabin. The galley is well positioned and designed for preparing meals both at sea and when in harbour. The current owner has carefully maintained the boat, including investment in new sails and navigation aids, alongside a comprehensive engine service in 2019. For anybody looking for a capable blue water cruiser, with a good reputation and attractive lines, this boat is worth considering. Alternatively, the boat would be just as at home cruising coastlines or participating in club racing. If you are interested to know more, please do contact us and we would be pleased to organise a private viewing for you.
