A classic and well proven design, this Cal 40 was built when hull were made of thick solid fiberglass, not paper thick high tech materials. Elegant design but simple and easy to maintain.

Deck: Monitor wind vane, new lazybag, spinnaker pole, new hatch on main cabin, deck shower, self
tacking winch (2) 2 speed winch (4) mast winch (2), hydraulic backstay adjuster, manual windlass, Schaefer rolling furler. Sails: 2x spinnaker, 2x storm jib, 1x number 1 genoa, 1x number 2 genoa, Main sail (need to replace). Hard dinghy with Yamaha 5hp outboard. 5 anchors (Bruce, CQR, Delta and 2 Danforth).
Remarks: the 30 HP Yanmar engine is working ok but should be revised or replaced for peace of mind. Present owner is not a mechanic and would rather install a new one if he was to cruise extensively. He priced a brand new Yanmar in Indonesia for around 5K. The main sail needs to be replaced (should be easy to find a main sail (used or new) for a Cal 40 :). These 2 points are taken into consideration into the low asking price for a quick sale as owner is keen to sell for personal reasons.
Looking at Cal 40 for sale online, we find one at 15K in terrible shape with lots of work and no equipment and another one in great shape but at 45K. This one with a new engine and sail would compare favorably at that 45K but for a better cost!
All system are running and the owner is currently living onboard here in Malaysia. The boat is right now in a well protected marina .. free of any docking charges and right next to an inexpensive boatyard where any work could be easily and cheaply done. This is a great vessel for a couple or someone who like to do a low budget charter (many bunks). Simple, easy to maintain at a good price! If you are interested, best is to come visit the vessel by flying to Kota Kinabalu on Sabah (Borneo), Malaysia. The boat is located a short flight or 3h by road from Kota Kinabalu.
