Caliber Yachts was a manufacturer of strong, high quality, cruising sailboats. With14 opening ports, 7 overhead hatches and 2 dorade vents there is plenty of light and air in the cabin, especially for the tropics.  In addition TURTLE has a 16,000 BTU reverse cycle heat & air-conditioning.   

Other Caliber features are a bulletproof hull to deck joint, with a slotted aluminum toe rail,  a forward collision bulkhead, a skeg mounted rudder & internal ballast in the keel which protects the boat in the event of a hard grounding.  The Caliber 40's limit of positive stability is 138 degrees - well in excess of the 120 degrees many consider the minimum necessary for safe offshore sailing.

A key feature of TURTLE and many Calibers is the ability to quickly convert from a sloop to a cutter.  Caliber's unique system gave owners the ability to use the rigged inner forestay for a storm jib, close to the center of the boat where it's most effective.  Caliber was able to do this without the complication of running backstays.

 With the innovative "Convertible Cutter " rig, bow rollers which accommodate 2 anchors, 2 heads (YES! 2 heads are better than one) accommodation's which can sleep 7, sugar scoop stern, private stall shower, 6'4" long X 4'4" wide pullman style  berth in the owners stateroom, 6'7" long X 4'4" wide berth in the aft cabin, full nav station, fold up dining table with shelf storage behind it, double  lock chain plates, TURTLE is a great  world cruiser for a couple or two. In fact several Calibers have done successful circumnavigations.       

Turtle is well equipped  for offshore cruising with a single sideband marine radio, solar panels, electric windlass with wireless remote, multiple anchors, emergency life raft, dinghy, 8hp outboard, tricolor, radar/chartplotter, AIS,  and below deck auto-pilot.

She's on her way to Annapolis and will arrive in April. Click on "Full Specifications" and/or call me for details.  As a former Caliber 40 owner I am very well acquainted with these fantastic boats.
