Health forces this boat to be relisted for sale
Shoot the Breeze: 1977 CAL 3-46: Asking $29,900
Engine has been run by marine mechanic
New Zealand owner wants it gone ASAP
This a 1977 Cal 3-46 in generally decent condition and I was told by the previous broker the engine was in good condition. The current owner has done a lot of work to prep this vessel for the trip to New Zealand. He has added a SSB with tuner, new head, new batteries and cleaned and reassembled the main cabin. The fore and aft cabins look good as I could best inspect them, with the aft cabin loaded with sails and solar panels etc. Both cabins will need flooring as they have been stripped to the fibreglass and painted. The main cabin still retains it's original Teak and Holly. This is a large boat and would make an excellent live-aboard and has great value for someone with finishing ability. I estimate it would cost about $5k to have local craftsmen restore the main cabin to its original glory.
Electronics are basic and very old with no guarantee any even work. The good news is that there appears to be several new or as new sails stored in the aft cabin. They are white and crisp; however the main that is on the boom and covered feels soft and I expect very dirty.
You would be buying the boat on the hard and "as is". There can be no sea trial, no available knowledge of the vessel and no answers available in the future. You are welcome to come down and inspect the vessel or even pay for a survey.
If you are a handy person with a limited budget, but lots of time and dreams of a live-aboard cruiser, this may be your next yacht.
San Carlos, Sonora is an easy and safe five hour drive South of Nogales Arizona. The alternative is to fly in to Tucson AZ and take the Tufesa bus to Guaymas, Sonora. There is an excellent Holliday Inn Express in Guaymas, for around $60us/night, and taxis are cheap. Don't forget your passport.
