Description

 

Located In: San Carlos, Mexico
Year: 1977
Hull Material: Fiberglass

A light-displacement passagemaker. The Cal 46-III.

The CAL 46-III weighs 15 tons. Hefty for a coastwise cruiser. But light for an offshore boat.

Hand layed-up fiberglass construction, generous structural bulkheads make her sinewy and tough. And Bill Lapworth’s sea kindly design makes her fast enough to run before a storm.

The keel is extraordinarily long, to help her track. And it only draws five feet, which is unusual for a 46-footer. A balanced spade rudder helps her answer surely to her helm.

The sail plans were designed for a couple to manage at sea. She comes as a ketch, for easy balance with any combination of sails. In any wind. And everything is inboard, too, so sails don’t have to be handled from a pitching bowsprit.

This vessel is located in beautiful San Carlos Sonora, Mexico, A short 250 mile drive on a safe 4 lane highway from Nogales, Az. San Carlos is a known boating destination/community, featuring breathtaking scenery, quiet anchorages nearby, great fishing, diving, two marinas, 3 haul out facilities and much more.
