Notes

A development from the earlier CAL 46 MS (CAL CRUISING 46). The differences between this and the earlier version: The engine room has been moved forward to midships, the aft cabin moved further aft. The main salon and the forward cabin have been enlarged. This 'new' design, proved to be a huge success with 95 built. Bill Lapworth has stated that this was his favorite design and a yacht that he actually owned. The boat went through a third iteration in the mid-'70's that included smaller cabin windows and a different interior layout. All the 46's were based on the same hull. Available as sloop or ketch.
