Yacht for sale is a 1986 CAL YACHTS 28' 3" "CHIKARA" 28 Cruising Sailboat in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, USA.

PRICE REDUCED, NOW OFFERED AT $16,500.00. WINTER STORAGE AT CHESTER BOAT BASIN ALONG WITH DINGHY AND ELECTRIC OUTBOARD INCLUED IN THE ASKING PRICE!!! The dimensions of the Cal 28 are generous to accommodate a livable interior, but were arrived at to insure good sailing performance. The Cal 28 is a performance cruiser promising owner satisfaction at the club racing level, day sailing or on a weekend get away. The generous beam of 10'3" assures stability as well as providing room below and generously wide decks. The beam narrows at the waterline to lessen wetted surface while still offering initial stability.

The sail-plan shows a performance-oriented double spreader rig on a substantial mast with its upper section tapered for lighter weight aloft and better sail-shape. There are fore and aft lower shrouds to reduce mast pumping and eliminate the need for a baby-stay.

The Cal 28 is a quiet blend of traditional and contemporary designs and materials. CHIKARA is a very fine example of this very popular model, always maintained to the highest standards. She is in the water and ready for fun and adventures with family and friends. You will not be disappointed upon an inspection of CKIKARA and we highly recommend her with confidence.

 DESCRIPTION and FEATURES Accommodations:When you consider how few nights the average racer/cruiser spends offshore, it becomes apparent that there is a far more sensible interior arrangement plan available that results in greater crew comfort. That layout is exactly what sets the Cal 28 apart from all others in the 27-30' range. By moving the head aft to amid-ship, the forward cabin is enlarged, and the traditional "tunnel" between head and lockers is eliminated. The Cal 28's forward cabin is the owner's stateroom and features a large V-berth (port side berth is a full 7’ and the starboard side berth is 6’3”) and a 3.5' hanging locker. Moving aft through the main bulkhead with privacy door, you enter the main salon with L-shaped settees to port and a straight settee to starboard and a centerline drop leaf table. There is abundant storage above and outboard in lockers and shelves. Continuing aft to port is a well laid out galley including hot and cold pressure water, SS sink, icebox, and a two-burner propane stove with oven. Opposite to starboard is a large icebox which also serves as the nav station. Aft of the nav station is the fully enclosed ship's head featuring a vanity, sink, storage lockers, shower, and marine toilet (new in 2007). Furthest aft to port is a large double berth with an opening port for ventilation. On the port bulkhead adjacent to the companionway is a Xantrex control panel for monitoring the batteries. Her bottom is painted with the new, environmentally-friendly Interlux - Pacifica paint (Blue). Forward Cabin:
