The Caliber 35 LRC is a versatile, shoal draft cruiser. The 35 makes a very good impression. While there is nothing radical or noticeably unique about her design, she is clearly built to a high standard. From a varnished bowsprit to stainless steel portlights to a sleek swim platform, the Caliber 35 quietly blends tradition with fresh thinking. With her modified keel and skeg underbody, she defies easy classification and reminds one of the days when there wasn't such a chasm between racing and cruising boats.
The Caliber 35 does not rely on an inner liner for structural strength. Instead, floor stringers are laminated to the hull providing excellent load distribution for the internally ballasted keel, support for the subsole and increased overall hull rigidity. The bulkheads are laminated to the hull, adding additional athwartships integrity.
The Caliber 35 LRC is a unique boat in this size range. She combines the offshore features most often found on larger boats with Caliber design features that are all her own and not found on other production boats of this size. Some of these features are the Caliber Performance Cruising underbody, the Caliber Convertible Cutter Rig, the Caliber Multi-Bulkhead bonding system, and the Caliber Triple Support Rudder system - just to name a few.
The 35 Long Range Cruiser carries a remarkable 120 gallons of fuel, supplied to the engine through one of 2 redundant fuel delivery systems - just one of the many "back-up" systems that are part of the Caliber 35' thoughtful design.
Optional Convertible Cutter Rig and Furling Main. While cruising, if heavy weather is encountered, the Sloop Rig can instantly be converted into a heavy air rig that is self tacking. This can be done in a matter of minutes! Creating a well balanced and totally inboard rig that is strongly supported.
