New Quarter Ton CAL T/4. She Moves (1972)

Photo Collage - New Quarter Ton Cal T/4

Bill Lapworth shows the way to the world's hot young naval architects with his radically new, radically fast CAL T/4 Yacht. This strikingly beautiful new 24-footer promises to be the hottest contender in international Quarter Ton racing.

Her underbody is totally new and unique. She has a moderate displacement hull with a soft double chine and a long flat kicker leading to the powerful counter-balanced outboard rudder.

This new configuration is designed to extend her waterline for higher speed, increase stability for greater drive, and offer instantly responsive steering control.

Initial sailing trials reveal her remarkable power and control both on the wind and off. She drives right through a hard chop and is uncannily swift in light airs.

The CAL T/4 looks and feels as good as she goes. Her roomy two-cabin interior is exquisitely finished in mahogany or optional teak.

She has berths for four, an enclosed head, and a hanging locker. The cabin sides are fully insulated with attractive fabric-on-foam, and curtains and carpeting are standard.

The CAL T/4 has the feel of a much bigger boat. She looks fast just riding at anchor. Below, she looks, feels, even smells expensive. And under sail, the only thing those conventional big, fast, expensive boats will ever see is her mean looking stern.
