35 We purchased our 1984 CAL 35 MK II in April of 2012. We've been full time live aboard since. We've sailed her from Panama City to the Chesapeake Bay via the Gulf and outside up the East Coast. She sails well on all points but can bash a bit to weather in a chop. It can be a bit unnerving at times but if you bare off a bit, it can help considerably. There isn't much info to be had on these old girls but we find her to be a great boat for the money. Tons of room and storage. The shower has been of great use as we live on her full time. The old Universal 5432 is running like a champ and the only drawback there is the 11 + quarts of oil she uses on EACH oil change. We did the ICW down to Florida and that can get costly if you change every 75 hrs. which I do. Other than that, Cal legacy with a great layout for two people. We have the model without the Quarter berth as we wanted the big lazarette. If you have guests for any length of time it can be a pain in the ass and somewhat awkward with your guests right there in the middle of the salon. All things being equal. We love the boat. We've not done any major mods as of yet. None needed. Looking forward to taking her places.
