Broker's Comments
34 Cal34 1978
In the mid 60's, Bill Lapworth produced a boat called the Cal 40. Despite dire predictions by "experts" that it would not sail well, the rudder would fall off and God only knows what else, it went on to dominate sailboat racing for a number of years. The Cal 40 is to sailing as Carol Shelby's AC Cobra is to auto racing or the P-51 Mustang is to fighter aircraft: legends that, at the mere mention of their name, will put a gleam in an old man's eye that was not there moments before.

The Cal 34 is based upon the same design as the Cal 40. There are others similar in design but what makes the difference was the renovation project of two years that the current owner spent gutting and rebuilding this beautiful boat. From 2012 to 2014, the boat went under a true labor of love and was completely recreated and given a new life. To say I was impressed by the workmanship that went into restoring this boat is a gross understatement!
Time was taken to insulate the entire boat with two layers of 1/2 inch DOW TUFF-R insulation(6.6r) and one layer of Lowe (7.1 R).  That was just the beginning. Imported Mahogany was used for the cabinets and the wood trim in the interior. All the rigging was replaced. The salon area was reconfigured to allow more room for storage, galley space and dining. Virtually every inch of this boat with the exception of the hull was replaced and refitted during this time period!  The Stainless steel fittings are the highest qaulity as is all of the workmanship on the boat There is a full Dodger and Full Bimini that protects the spacious cockpit. The boat is rigged for solo sailing with its "state of the art" line management systems. The galley area id a gourmand's' delight and the refrigeration is fantastic. Quite frankly, I can't say enough about this boat. You need to see it to believe it. If you are looking for a thirty to 35  foot sailing vessel, STOP looking and come see this beauty!
