1977 CAL 34 Mk III – $13,900 USD


Categories: ,


The CAL 34-III, specifically, was promoted as more of a blue water cruiser than previous versions. A bridge-deck was added, with companionway offset to starboard. Most of the changes to the interior were also consistent with the theme of an offshore cruiser with additional wood trim.
Among other changes:
Fuel and water tank capacity was further increased.
Heavier gauge standing rigging. Wheel steering is standard equipment.

“White Pearl” just arrived to La Paz sailing from San Diego by the owners. Due to some personal reasons the owner’s plans have changed and “White Pearl” is now for sale. This classic is beautiful. The interior was just repainted, new upholstery with a beautiful fresh look. The standing rigging was inspected on October 2020 and found to be in good condition. The running rigging is from November 2020 (Not even 2 months old!!!). The sails are operable if you’re not planning on racing…3 winches in the cockpit, a manual windlass to help hoisting the Bruce anchor, maintenance free AGM house batteries charged by a huge solar panel on top of the bimini when at anchor and a shore power 125V/30Amp when at the dock.

The boat is already located at one of the best cruising grounds this planet has to offer. It already made the jump, all you have left to do, is get your clothes and come cruise the amazing Sea of Cortez with whales, dolphins, friendly Sea-Lions, Sea-Turtles, great fishing and much more!

There’s no need to spend a ton of money on a boat, to cruise in an area that is only 25 miles away from La Paz – the gate of the Sea of Cortez. Don’t let this opportunity go away. Call us!

Walk Through
The cockpit is very long and comfortable compared to similar size boats. It has cushions in very good condition and a deep locker under the port seat with access to the batteries and the water heater and a deep lazarette behind the helm with access to the steering system and the LPG installations. There are 3 winches in the cockpit, 2 for the jib-sheets and 1 on the cabin-top for the halyard.

Stepping down the companionway, to starboard and aft, a quarter berth which is now used for storage. Allow access to the engine for routine service. Between the quarter berth and the salon a small navigation table with the electric panel and the VHF. On the port side of the companionway is the L shaped galley. The middle section of the boat is the salon with new upholstery, a long settee to starboard and an L shape settee to port. A wood table is folded against the forward bulkhead to open up the salon with ample space and can be easily dropped down to serve as a dining table/games table. As easy as it is to drop it down, folding it back up doesn’t take much. Continuing forward to port is the head with shower and across from it is a hanging locker. The V-berth is next with a very comfortable double bed and an access to the chain locker.

Westerbeke 30, 4 cylinders.
25 HP at 2500 RPM (Manufacturer’s data).
V drive transmission to save space and allow easy access to the service side of the engine. Engine is located under the companionway with access from the front (under the steps and under the sink), starboard side (through the quarter berth), above (removing the top step of companionway) and on port side through the cockpit locker. Transmission is accessed from the lower step in the companionway.

Water – 60 Gallons.
Diesel – 35 Gallon steel tank. Under settee on starboard side.
Holding tank – 14.5 Gallons Plastic bladder. Under settee on port side.

Located on the port side after entering the companionway.
The sink and a dry storage are facing aft. The 3 burners gimbled stove/oven is facing the port side. There is a 12V portable “AlpiCool” fridge that is now stored at the V-Berth. During a passage this can be secured next to a 12V plug. A spice rack is wall mounted on the aft bulkhead. Very cozy galley!

The CAL 34 – mark III cabin interior layout was redesigned, affording more seating and bunk space. Which equals better livability. The galley was moved aft to port, leaving the starboard side available for a starboard settee/single berth.
The large v-berth was unchanged, the sleeping area measures 6’8”long x 7’4”wide at the head x 2′ wide at the foot. It is one of the largest V-berths in any sailboat under 38ft.
A deep/long single quarter berth is to starboard under the cockpit bench.

Mark III has a second cabin-top hatch added abaft the mast, and the fore hatch was moved to the foredeck rather than on top of the coach roof in front of the mast.
