What kind of boat is this?

Someone told me it's a Cal. Looks to me like it was fast in it's day. Was it? In any case, it's not fast anymore. Hasn't moved in at least 5 years. Yet....someone continues to pay slip fees and it continues to deteriorate. Makes me sad every time I walk by it!

Looks like the Holland designed Cal 9.2 - in serious need of some TLC. There is a SN member with one of these..... Same vintage and quite similar to our own Holland designed Nicholson 345.

The transom is very easy to see so take a look at the upper right hand corner and you will see the HIN. This will identify the make, model and year of the boat.

Unless the boat is older than 1972, when the HINs became required.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Seems the Cal 9.2's were built in the early '80's. (several for sale on Yachtworld around $25K.) Looks like a lot of IOR influence with the pinched transom and hefty beam amidships, large foretriangle and small main. Could need a bit of crew to hold her flat and change headsails frequently. Leave a note by the hatchcover if you're interested, and perhaps someone will get back to you.

Nope....got more boat to maintain now than I need! It just amazes me that it's so common (in the Bay Area anyway) for someone to pay $2500 - $3000 a year to store a boat they don't use, and in this case, can no longer use without a LOT of TLC!. I mean, for starters...this puppy's bottom looks like a reef on steroids! I was just curious if she was a "contender" at one time, as my unschooled racing eye perceived her to be.

Noted but based on the rounded cabin top and the tinted deadlights I made an educated guess that this boat is newer than 1972

As Faster noted, that looks like a Ron Holland design Cal 9.2. Cal 9.2's were known for serious mast step and support problems, disintergration of their experimental interior finishes, and for rudder problems. This old girl might be unable to sail, and the owner may not be afford the repairs in these times but is hanging on because he hopes to get her cleaned up and sailing one day.

Cal built several versions of these boats, one of which was a near grand prix level IOR design, but the rest were scaled back some. I raced one of these a few times. They were a real mixed bag. They went upwind real well with lots of crew on the rail, and were pretty quick in conditions where you had enough wind for them to point dead down wind with their huge chutes but not enough wind for the J-30's and their ilk to skate off. In almost all other conditions these were hard boats to sail to their rating, requiring a strong and experienced crew to keep her going at speed.

If it is not a Cal, it could be the Jeanneau Rush version. My first thought it was an Arcadia as I own, but soon noticed it was not quite the same. There were four versions of this boat built by Jeanneau, I would assume 4 sold by Cal too.

Other models of the same vintage include an Attalia. The transom seems too narrow for the Attalia and Arcadia.

If it isn't a Cal 9.2, then it must be it's twin from an alternate universe:
