1982 CAVALIER 39



Looking for an Off-Shore cruising boat ready to go anywhere, just bring your clothes and go? Your search stops here! This boat is an opportunity. The owner prepared her for a South Pacific cruise but all changed when Covid-19 came into the picture. Built in New-Zealand, one of the toughest cruising grounds on this planet, those boats were built to last. The standards for boat building in that area is as high as it gets in order to withstand the winds and waves of the southern ocean.
A total of 84 hulls of the 39′ model were built. A great boat that combines safety, good looks and comfort at sea. “Calypso” was refitted by the owner during 2019.
A list of gear that was added in 2019 includes:

Hydrovane – windvane self-steering autopilot
500 amp hours on gel batteries
Solar panels – 365 Watts w/new charger
AIS transmit/receive WiFi to network
High output 100 amp alternator
