The last year of production for the Cal 34, any version, was 1979. Are you looking to purchase from a private party or a broker? Either way their listing is wrong.

I know a little about Cal 34's.

That post by Breana is taken almost word for word from a Lowell Thomas site regarding a guidebook for selecting a trip on a cruise ship.
