    About this Sailboat:

    “CALIBER. A YACHT CREATED TO MEET THE RIGOROUS DEMANDS OF THE SEA, AND THE SERIOUS CRUISING SAILOR”

    Quoted from the CaliberYacht web site.

    Like all Caliber Yachts, Lagniappe is a true blue water boat. Her layout with the head and galley aft allows for a v-berth and settees of over six foot in length. The tiller steering is not only practical for sailing but when at anchor or at the dock the tiller gets out of the way allowing use of the entire cockpit.

  5. 1990 Caliber 33

    October 17, 2012 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    The Caliber 33 is a big boat tucked into a small package. Designed by company co-founder, Michael McCreary, the 33 is a solidly built cruiser of moderate to slightly heavy proportions and is respected by sailors all over the country.

    The hull is well constructed with solid fiberglass and resin laminate. Caliber exceeds the standards set by other boat builders in its class by avoiding the use of pre-fabricated fiberglass liners carelessly secured with adhesive bonding materials. Instead, each bulkhead and joiner component are secured with two to four layers of hand-laid fiberglass cloth and resin.

    The decks are constructed with plywood core and the deck-to-hull joint is sealed with a polyurethane adhesive and then bolted through an aluminum toe rail every 6” with ¼” stainless steel carriage bolts. The bolts are fit into square holes in the toe rail so that tightening the nuts will not cause the bolts to turn and break the caulking seal.

    This careful hull and deck construction creates a strong, solid structure almost immune to the stresses that many boats of the same size and price range encounter while underway.

    This particular Caliber has been upgraded and meticulously maintained by an experienced owner. Every part and system on this boat has been touched in one way or another with no cost spared.

    The biggest update to note is the professionally remanufactured engine (not rebuilt) which has just 1 or 2 run in hours. The Engine was remanufactured by Mack Boring using a new block and many new internal parts. This engine is as close to new as you can get.

    If you are looking for a strong reliable cruiser for coastal cruising or even a Caribbean sabbatical Freedom’s Song is certainly worth your time and will not disappoint.

    Equipment on Board:

    Engine starting battery on custom mount/ straps behind engine; Two house banks of 2 group 27’s with custom bases and straps; Two battery selector switches; True Charge ‘Smart’ Battery charger in port lazzerette; Automatic 12v Rule bilge pump with seperate float switch; Upgraded Autohelm ST4000 autopilot with screen display and re-located fluxgate compass; Autohelm binnacle mounted wind speed/ direction, depth and speed; Galvanic Isolator; Horizon VHF radio; Poly- Planar AM/FM/ CD Radio; Roller Furling (Harken) 155% Genoa with burgundy Sunbrella UV cover; Fully Battened main on Batt cars with 2 reef points with in boom jiffy reefing; Larger diameter main halyard; Plastic mast halyard exits replaced with stainless steel using plastic anti- electrolisis shims; Ez jacks lazy jacks with four legs; 1 1 speed halyard winch on Cabin top; 2 two speed jib sheet winches; 3 halyards, main sheet and jiffy reefing lines lead to cockpit via deck organizers and rope clutches; Cockpit shower; Cockpit Bimini; Cockpit Cushions; Manual cockpit bilge pump; Deck cover from mast to transom over boom to toerails; Propane locker with aluminum propane bottle; Kato davits with rail braces; Factory transom ladder.
