I’m moving up to a larger boat and you’ll struggle to find a cleaner, more fully equipped Cal 34 close to this price. This is not a project boat—I sailed it all last summer and just put her up for the winter recently.
The Westerbeke is original and runs fine, if a little smokey—she has all of the cosmetic issues of an older boat but otherwise she’s great and her bilge is dry. The boat yard where she’s kept over the winter is a great place—they’re very competent and they could help a first time owner quite a bit if you need that.
She comes with decades of cruising gear—the list below is not complete but it gives you an idea of what is aboard her. I will include the anchor with the boat—I was thinking of keeping it as a spare but we can discuss that.
Documentation: I have the original documentation that I keep in a box and I have two professionally spiral bound copies of everything:
Two spiral bound copies of the Westerbeke 30 Spare Parts List
Two spiral bound copies of the Westerbeke Engine Repair Manual (the engine bible)
Two spiral bound copies of the Westerbeke Service Bulletins
Two copies of the Owner’s Manual
Original wiring diagram
Original copy of the standing and running rigging specifications
As a note, she is set up to single hand..!! The new self-tailing Barient primary winches are super helpful here and she balances very well under head sail alone in any kind of moderate air. In fact, in heavy air she is great with headsail alone and it gives you the ability to quickly adjust sail area.
NOTE: she does have the traveler mounted above the companionway making her a MK II as best I can tell. CAL experts may know better.
