General Details

"RECALIBRATE" is a very well equipped Caliber 38, well suited for bluewater sailing and island cruising. Her moderate draft (5') is perfect for the Bahamas. All systems are well maintained and No detail has been overlooked to make her safe and comfortable for extended periods living on board.

Intelligently designed to be beautiful, quick, comfortable & seaworthy. An excellent performer for coastal cruising, and seaworthiness for ocean crossings. This solidly-constructed cruiser is a true joy to sail. The Performance Cruising Keel  with skeg-hung rudder design offers speed while providing directional stability enabling her to keep a course without constant attention at the helm. Remarkable maneuverability is another advantage of the design. Her high ballast-to-displacement ratio causes her to be stable, and safe, in rough water. Come take a look at this ready to go cruising boat.

Additional Information
  On board. In terms of accommodations, no boat of comparable size comes close to the Caliber 38. Her sleeping quarters are true staterooms, expansive and private. Instead of a cramped V-berth, there's a full forward cabin with ample storage and a generous Pullman offset berth. Forward, there is a separate shower compartment with a plexiglass door,. The aft stateroom has it's own head & shower. The Caliber 38's clever and uncompromising design is further evident in the main salon. Well-illuminated and richly furnished in teak, this area takes full advantage of 6' 5" headroom and a wide beam. Two settees offer ample seating and one converts to a double berth. 7 opening hatches and 14 opening ports make ventilation a breeze. The galley is well set-up for the chef and the nav-station is very secure for offshore chart plotting.  RECALIBRATE , presented here, is an excellent example of a true blue water cruiser. She is well equipped and ready to go
