1967 CAL 36 Cruiser Sailboat


Year: 1967
Fuel Type: Diesel
Located In: La Paz, Mexico
Hull Material: Fiberglass


Classic fast passage maker. Lovingly maintained and fully equipped for off-shore cruising. 550 Hours on 2009 Westerbeke diesel, sails from 2011, cutter stay, lazy-jacks  and a cradle, wind vane pilot, watermaker, SSB radio, AIS, Pelagic autopilot (2019), radar, solar, dinghy, updated electronics and loaded with gear and spare parts.
The Cal 36 is a fast-passage maker with a comfortable sea-kindly motion. Considered to be the little sister of the legendary Cal 40, she is stiff and has an easily driven hull form that performs extremely well on all points of sail. Running downwind, she doesn’t have the same squirrelly tendencies of many IOR-era and wide-beam cruising boats and can be easily steered by autopilot in following seas.

Lai Holokai has been meticulously maintained, refit, and updated over the years. She is outfitted for coastal and offshore cruising, is set up to sail short-handed by one or two people, and has generous storage and secure sea-berths. There are custom features both below decks and on deck and all sail handling systems lead to the generous oversized cockpit. All the proper cruising and safety gear, extensive tools, and spares are aboard for the new owner.

Buying a boat in Mexico can have some tax advantages in saving you the State Sales Tax and the boat is already where you want to start Cruising.  When buying a boat in Mexico, all of the title transfer, paperwork and funds transfers are handled in the United States by a Marine Documentation Services Company for your convenience and piece of mind.
