Jensen Marine, also known as Cal Boats, was a major sailboat builder in the 1970s and 80s. Best know for several models: Cal 20s - Cal 25s -Cal 2-30s - Cal 39s and of course the Cal 40. Originally know as light displacement racing boats, it was soon discovered they were very comfortable family cruising boats too. Even in this day of ultra-light racing boats, Cals are still recognized as very competitive, strong race boats.
The present owner of this Cal 39, used it for some cruising but primarily for local club racing. During it's racing career it took 1st place in the Foul Weather Bluff series.
The large cockpit and wide side decks make this design easy to sail. The interior has a great forward stateroom, usually filled with sails, and plenty of crew space aft. The large quarter berth has always been the best berth on board for long races. A large galley with refrigeration and a three burner propane stove with oven, lots of storage, and a head with Vacuflush complete the package.
