Cal 2-30: Hot New Ocean Racer (1969)

It's Lapworth's bold new Cal 2-30 that is eating up some of today's most highly regarded 35-40 foot racers, boat for boat. Look closely, and you'll see a couple of the reasons why.

CAL 31 Most Comfortable Interior Afloat (1978)

Bill Lapworth, her designer, gave the new CAL 31 a generous 25'8" waterline. That's almost 2 feet longer than some boats in her class. And a good 4 inches longer than our own CAL 34.

The new Cal-34's are here! (1967)

Less than two months in the water and still on shakedown, the new Cal-34's have already won their first two regattas. When Bill Lapworth designs a boat, it's fast -- "Cal" fast!

The Cal 34's Plush Interior, Built for Speed (1970)

Don't let the plush interior fool you. The Cal 34's built for speed. Speed that's there from the beginning. Speed built right into the race-proven Bill Lap-worth design.

The Accomplished CAL 34 Cruising Boat

The Accomplished CAL 34 Cruising Boat (1979)

Below decks on the CAL 34, the emphasis is on the practical. That's why you'll find ample accommodations for six. An L-shaped dinette. Even a separate navigator's station.

1974 CAL 35 Yacht: The extra 5 grand isn't for extras

CAL 35 Yacht: The extra 5 grand isn't for extras (1974)

The CAL 35 is comfortable, luxurious, and roomy. Yet she's a hell of a sailer. Five people can be as together or as alone as they want.

1974 Introducing the CAL 35 Yacht

CAL 35: Sleek Island Hopper (1974)

The new CAL 36's racing everywhere winning everywhere! (1967)

1978 The CAL 39 Yacht by Jensen Marine

The CAL 39 Yacht - All Luxury Inside (1978)

On both CAL 39 hull designs, you'll find that many so-called extra-cost "goodies" are standard equipment. Like Barient winches. Pedestal steering. Pulpits and lifelines.

1978 The New CAL 39 Yacht - A cruiser built for speed not rating points

The New CAL 39 Yacht - A cruiser built for speed, not rating points (1978)

Now Lapworth's done it again. His new CAL 39 is a superbly equipped —and fast—modern cruiser. Like the CAL 40, built to beat the competition—not the rule.

1979 The CAL 39 by Jensen Marine

The CAL 39: A Nice Place to Call Home (1979)

The CAL 39 doesn't sacrifice comfort, space or style. It is a boat that's uncompromisingly comfortable -- and even faster than a CAL 40.

1981 Last year the CAL 39 outperformed many serious competitors

Last year the CAL 39 outperformed many serious competitors (1981)

1981 The New CAL Meter Edition 9.2 Yacht

The New CAL Meter Edition 9.2 Yacht (1981)

The CAL 9.2 looks to you like a 30' Ron Holland Half Tonner with a deckhouse. Its origin is indeed a flat-out race-bred hull that beats, reaches and runs with ferocity.
