Great 1975 Cal 34, new autopilot

For sale is our beautiful 1975 Cal 34, Moonrise, located in Tacoma, WA. She's a classic beauty, well kept, and everything works. We just returned from three glorious weeks of sailing in the BC Gulf Islands sunshine so she is turnkey. She is the perfect coastal cruiser for the cost conscious sailor who wants a safe, reliable boat that is still beautiful to look at.

Why are we selling? Even though this boat is listed on Mahina Expedition's List of offshore boats, she isn't large enough for our family of 4 adults to sail to Mexico and beyond comfortably. We need that 'larger and heavier' boat.

Asking price is $21,900 OBO
Contact us through our website at or call Mike at 415-213 six seven three one.

Re: Great 1975 Cal 34, new autopilot

I see so many younger people on CF looking for a great, ready to go now boat that is on the Mahina list and I see your boat for sale and I just wonder why it hasn't been snapped up. Then I saw the photos of your local cruising grounds and SV Estrellita's photos from their season sailing the PNW and I am even more perplexed!

This is a great boat for someone wanting to go now. I hope she finds a new home soon!

Re: Great 1975 Cal 34, new autopilot

Thanks! We can't help but think that the right buyer just hasn't seen her yet. At this price, we think we have one of the cleanest and best boats on the market. Easy to singlehand, fun to sail, safe, and economical. The engine takes only 1/2 gallon/hour. Our recent trip to the Gulf Islands cost us less than 200$ in fuel. That's something we will definitely miss with a larger boat.
