CAL Boats - The Total Performance Fleet (1970)

1970 Brochure Cover - CAL Boats - The Total Performance Fleet

Total performance means - winning races, luxurious cruising, and carefree ownership of a boat that retains its value, year after year.

Racing Performance

The "CAL" fleet is the most successful line of racing boats ever produced. Year after year, "CAL" boats dominate the competition.

It's due to Bill Lapworth's oft copied but never duplicated formula of long waterline, light displacement, and spade rudder. Today, to beat a "CAL" boat, you have to own one.

Today's sailing families require a lot of cruising comfort. And Bill Lapworth designs "CAL" boats around people. That's why you'll find large, well-arranged cockpits, full-length berths, big, well-equipped galleys and bright, roomy cabins.


The remarkable durability of "CAL" boats in major ocean racing competition is an elegant testimony to the engineering know-how of Jack Jensen. "CAL" boats require less maintenance and repair—it's solid design, engineering, and construction that make the difference.


The characteristics that make "CAL" boats total performers afloat also make them solid investments.

A comparison of prices on the used boat market consistently demonstrates the economic value of owning a "CAL" boat...they're worth more used because "CAL" boats are better designed and better built to exacting standards by Jensen Marine for safety, durability, comfort and long life.
