A good boat for three to four days, coastal or offshore. Great cruising boat that gets you there at a deceit speed. Handles all weather well and sails to weather well. Good ageless design.

Salacia , a 1964 Sailyacht 35, is a very strongly built craft that has been a pleasure in conditions good to pretty bad. Solid and reassuring in a blow, sails amazingly well considering her "motor-sailor" designation. I love this boat!

Why would you shorten the already way too short IOR boom by 3'. I actually extended mine 3' for an E dimension of 19'. Much easier sail handling since we only need a 120 upfront. Very surprised to hear about shortening the boom. Wow.

I have yet to see any Downeast trawlers or sailboats that weren't built to very high standards.

Purchased Hull # 89 in April 2013. Sailed coast of NC & SC Till last weekend 11/10/2013. It was on the hard for four years. Put very little into it and sailed it away and was in some nasty weather sometimes this summer. No problems with the boat at all. I love It...

this isn't so much a review as it is a clarification. I just bought a 1971 cal 27 and I have to fix it up before I can sail it. however while looking at these reviews, I notice that the cal 27 reviews actually cover 3 different boats, often without specifying. so, in order to clear things up, I offer the following, taken from another site: Actually, there have been three different 27 foot Cal yachts, all designed by Bill Lapworth. All three of these 27 footers were separate and distinct hull designs, not modifications. Add this to the fact that there have been several variations of each design. I will do my part to kill the confusion about the many models of Cal Yachts. The first 27 designed in 1969, launched in 1970 (Practical Sailor Dec 1995), was built in Costa Mesa and was the smallest of the three. Choice of outboard or inboard power with a 9 foot beam and a convertable pop-top that helped make up for the fact that the boat didn't have much standing headroom. This original 27 displaced only 5400 pounds but was very quick and well built. The main problem with this 27 was the lack of headroom. The T2 was a variation of this first design. I think the T2 was a racing version of the original 27. I know for sure that the T2 does well, to this day, in sail races throughout our country. The Catalina 27 was introduced in 1971. It bacame a major competitor to Cal. I think that the introduction of the Catalina 27 forced developmemt of the largest 27 foot Cal, the second 27 footer, Cal 2-27. Next came the Cal 2-27, designed in 1973, launched in 1974 (Practical Sailor Dec 1995), which displaced a whopping 6700 pounds. Click here for a full webpage on the Cal 2-27, with full screen photos of my Cal "imp". Catalina Yachts (Cal's neighbor manufacturer and chief competitor) had introduced their Catalina 27 in late 1971. This 27 offered more interior room than the first Cal 27 so this new 2-27 design had full standing headroom, a 9 foot 3 inch beam, a marine head, a decent galley with an icebox and an alcohol cookstove. The 2-27 was to be the largest Cal 27 ever designed. Most of the new 2-27s had some sort of inboard engine. Some used Atomic 4s, some used Volvo Penta 2 cylinder, 4 cycle gas inboards, some used Farymann diesels and yes, a few were still built with outboard engines. The last Cal 27 that was designed was the Mark III or sometimes called the 3-27. The name was later changed to simply "Cal 27". This all new 27 foot Cal was designed in 1982, launched in 1983. The 27 Mark III remained in production through 1985.(Practical Sailor Dec 1995) Click here to go to the specs and a photo gallery of the Cal 27 Mark III "Liberty", owned by Mr. Doug McCance. Mr. McCance has donated much data to this webpage. The Mark III was lighter than the 2-27 and a bit narrower with a longer waterline. She had a deeper fin keel and less sail area. The Mark III was, no doubt, the quickest of the three 27s.
