1974 CAL 2-46



The CAL 2-46 designed by Bill Lapworth and built 1973-76 is described in Practical Sailor Magazine and in Yachting Magazine as “Embodying strong sailing characteristics with motor-sailing comfort.
Both Lapworth & Jensen chose the CAL 46 as their personal retirement yacht for extended blue water cruising. Today the CAL 46 stands as a boat that in many ways was ahead of its time.”

This vessel is rigged as a masthead sloop, the mizzen having been removed during an extensive refit in 2012 with a new Perkins M92B and Velvet Drive transmission and a new aluminum and Poly fuel tanks installed.

Buying a boat in Mexico can have some tax advantages in saving you 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 peace of mind.

The owners of La Paz Cruisers Supply and Brokerage are cruisers themselves and have been living and cruising aboard in Mexico since 2008. Our team has crossed oceans, sailed to the South Pacific, delivered catamarans from South Africa and sailed around the Caribbean, Mediterranean and world. Our goal isn’t to waste your time, but to help you find a boat that fits your budget and dreams.
