1980 cal 39 located in Connecticut for sale

39' cal 39


PRICE REDUCTION!! March2021 to 22,500$ This 1980 cal 39 is in fine condition for her age , and I'm confident the new owner will be very happy with her..You might Know that cal made the tall and short rig(this one has the tall rig-- -More sail area) also they made a shoal keel and deep keel. this one is the shoal keel version, so it can get into shallower areas--I think this is the ideal combo. I am selling it because I seem to have developed a propensity for seasickness, and its not much fun for me. Also, My life is too full with business and job commitments. I have had her for 3 years now and I've done a lot of work to her. Recent improvements include new sanitary tank, as well as lines. New Marine radio with AIS/GPS capabilities including a slave microphone ,
which comes in very handy while transitioning bridges. also new 100 watt expandable solar system w/200 watt controller.She's on the hard right now, but it wont take much to make her ready to sail away, she comes with TONS of extras, you know, silverware, dishes, lifeJackets, epirb, emergency liferaft, once shes in the water, shes pretty turnkey !
when I boght the boat, I had and EXHAUSTIVE survey which i will disclose. In the fall, I also had the engine oil analyzed and
there were no issues. I will disclose the chemical Spectro-analysis of the oil to the prospective buyer.
I have had a few folks look at her when I had it listed at the higher price. some looked at the survey I had done, and had concerns about some moisture in the upper deck area(Disclosed in survey).when I queeried the surveyor about this before I bought it,he told me that it is not a significant cause for concern, but that it should be addressed before any serious blue water cruising , moreover, the surveyer told me that all boats this age have some degree of moisture in the decks.I can say that I weigh 275 lbs, and nowhere do the decks flex under my weight.
So, Understanding that this will need to be addressed at some point, I have adjusted the price accordingly
that said, this is a great deal at this price!
