We are selling our 1994 Caliber 40 cutter because my wife and I have both suffered debilitating orthopedic trauma in the last few years and neither of us can move about a sailboat underway, so it is time to sell our beloved Mirador. She is at our home dock in Punta Gorda, SW Florida about 90-miles south of Tampa.
Mirador needs a great deal of re-conditioning and updating. All the equipment onboard works well and is fully functional. But, it is all 15 to 20-years old and well used. The Yanmar 4JH2E 50HP diesel has only 2,900 hours on it and runs perfectly with no oil burning or leaking. The 18” feathering Maxprop works perfectly.
We know a buyer will want to replace and upgrade much of the equipment and thus are offering Mirador for sale far below market value for a Caliber 40. We are selling the boat at its current location and in the condition it is presently.
You can buy Mirador for $75,000, which is many tens of thousands below market value. You can then customize her as you wish and end up with exactly the cruiser you want for less than any Caliber 40 currently on the market.
We purchased Mirador new in early 1995. She was built in Clearwater, Florida in the fall of 1994 and is the last of the non-LRC Caliber 40s. We equipped her with every known creature comfort, performance, and safety feature before taking off on a 17-year cruising adventure in August 2000.
Just a few of the items in the extraordinary list are: 8-custom sails, Spectra watermaker, ICOM Ham radio, 4-anchors, custom anchor locker and anchor handling gear, custom tracks for staysails, Autohelm SPX-30 /P-70 autopilot, Sailormat windvane, 535 watts of solar power, custom Atlantic towers arch, 135 gallons of diesel tankage, custom workshop with metal top work surface. All standing rigging was replaced in 2017.
