CAL 30-Foot Sailboats & Yachts
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.

The CAL 3-30 is Bill Lapworth's latest design — a new IOR champion. EL TIGRE II was raced completely stock, without a single modification …

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 33 has been racing just a few short months. She has already run up a most impressive record in the most fiercely competitive events in the country.

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!

As if big, fast, powerful were not enough, the CAL 34 yacht is built of fiberglass to Jensen Marine standards, assuring low maintenance and high resale value.

Of all the Cal boats, the CAL 34 offers perhaps the best combination of "Cal fast" performance and luxurious cruising accommodations. Bill Lapworth designed the CAL 34.

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.

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.

The CAL 34-III is an offshore boat -- designed to handle offshore weather. A cruiser built to keep you comfortable even on a punishing daylong beat to windward.
GG Archives REF: BPCJM-039-1977-C-AD
Unlike many cruising boats, the CAL 34-III will sail close to the wind. She has the speed that all of Lapworth's boats are known for.

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.
GG Archives REF: BPCJM-032-1974-C-AD
The CAL 35 will get you there fast. A sleek boat with a full run keel and 546 square feet of easily handled sail.

Most racing skippers know it takes time to race a new boat into shape. The new CAL 36 Yacht must be the exception that proves the rule.

George Griffith's CAL 39 Tabasco, fresh from her Class C victory in the Mazatlan, won first overall in the first race of the 1971 Whitney Series.

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.

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.
GG Archives REF: BPCJM-042-1978-C-AD-2
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.
GG Archives REF: BPCJM-047-1979-C-AD
The entire CAL 39–hull, deck and interior–is the work of the master, Bill Lapworth, whose classic boats are simpy legends.

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.
