35' Bill Lapworth Cal Jensen 35


Description: Up for your consideration is this Bill Lapworth 35 it is a thick strong mahogany hull with a thick glass overlay.She is known for excellent seaworthyness and is fast. She is a full keeled boat blue water sailing vessel. This is a famous boat with a amazing pedigree...

She has full mahogany interior and the heavy duty bronze port lights. the interior is in pretty good shape but has been neglected for some time. The wood work has been treated with lemon oil and is shiny.

This boat is in need of a lot of work but is well worth the effort and expense.
She has no mast and inboard is rusted and doesn't run. there is a yamaha outboard on the transom. The hull is sound and seaworthy. there are a couple soft spots on deck but 95% rigid.

In competition for the most famous of the Cal line, is the Cal 34, also designed by Bill Lapworth. the Cal 34 has its own line of trophies to its credit as a racer, and was one of the longest running production boats ever made. it was originally designed as a well built comfortable coastal cruising boat with a nice roomy cabin layout, large V-berth and large cockpit. and it was fast!. There were upgrades and improvements to the 34 over the last few years of its production to make it better for bluewater and long range cruising, with the hull being strengthened, a redesigned cockpit with a strong bridgedeck and the steel support beam replaced with aluminum, but the hull shape remained the same. with the 34-III model being last produced in 1979, it was then and still is a highly rated offshore cruising boat. with the Mk III model having its hull laid up stronger it could take more ballast but with sail area slightly reduced, so with having an SA/Disp ratio of 16.38, a Disp/L ratio of 259.08 and a ballast/disp ratio of 45.58, it is set up well to be a much stronger ocean cruiser than the first model, with good performance in speed and pointing ability, and a more than adequate righting ability. the later models had, in addition to more ballast, a higher aspect rig, and a newer and more comfortable cabin layout.
