A lot of thought has gone into the construction and layout of the Caliber 40 LRC. As you come down a very comfortable and wide companionway, you have 3 steps that welcome you to a well illuminated and richly furnished teak salon. To port you have a large "L" shaped galley with access to Nav Station. Adjacent to starboard is a full head with dual access. Starboard and aft is a large berth (6'7" x 4'4" ) , cedar lined hanging locker and private access to the aft head. Moving forward is beautiful "L" shaped seating to port with a twin-leaf dining table that folds up against the bulkhead. When stored up, you find yourself in a "Living Room" that's perfect for entertaining guests. When lowered, you have access to a very nice and handy liquor cabinet with assorted glassware and additional storage. With the single leaf you can have dining for 4 comfortably. Extend the leaf and you have a table that extends to include your guest to starboard. This port settee also has a flip up extension, giving this single berth additional width. Starboard, you have a long settee . Storage beyond belief behind and below both settees. Do not take lightly ! This is a cruisers dream !!! Moving forward you have the Master Stateroom with a Pullman berth to port (6'4" x 4'4" ) which is extremely comfortable with a custom Hypo Allergenic Pure Latex foam mattress on the "Froli " System …. don't ask , just try it out !! The Pullman mattress lifts up on for access to a "drop-in" storage locker . On the front side of the berth are 2 lockers and 3 drawers. Adjacent to starboard, double cedar lined hanging lockers with a desk and storage below..... Storage ! Storage ! Storage … unbelievable for a 40' vessel ! Forward is a large head with separate shower area to port .
The galley is port of companionway , "L" shaped and great for working underway or on the hook. Storage .. Storage .. Great counter working space.
The Nav station is port and aft of companionway with ample storage and desk. 12V / 110 panel at your finger tips . Space for future electronics .

** The WATER / FUEL are fiberglass tanks, built-in to the bilge before the interior is laid up. Laminated directly to the hull. The "Integral tanks" enhance the hull strength and serves as a double bottom to the hull.
** The "Dual Diesel Fuel System" are a completely independent fuel supply source to the engine. Each system has it's own tank fill, filter, vent and pickup. If there is ever a contamination or delivery problem a turn of valves puts the second system on line without even shutting down the engine !
** The "Dual Fresh Water Systems" … each sysem has its own tank, fill, filter, vent and pickup. If there is a contamination or delivery problem a turn of valves puts the second system on line instantly !

Keel stepped sloop rig with convertible cutter shroud. All lines lead aft to cockpit to Lewmar line stoppers.
The Caliber keel can be best described as a long shoal fin. This type of keel has become very popular for offshore sailing. This designed fin in conjunction with a skeg hung rudder can provide excellent directional stability, ease of maneuverability, reduced wetted surface, and improved windward performance. The bottom of the rudder/skag is much higher than the bottom of the keel for added grounding protection.
Caliber uses the horizontal flange method for all the deck to hull connections. The deck- to- hull joint starts with an inward turning flange on the hull. The deck, which is slightly oversized, allows the deck flange to be custom fit perfectly to each hull. Which starts the four - step process of sealing the deck to the hull
Another nice feature on the Deck-to-hull joints is accessibility to the connection. With the simple removal of valance covers, the entire perimeter of the deck-to-hull joint system is accessible from the interior of the hull if the need should ever arise.
The heavy stainless steel chain plates are bolted through a chain plate bulkhead. Firmly attached to the hull utilizing 8 layers of mat and roving running vertically and horizontally on both sides of the chain plate. the horizontal bulkheads located near the chain plates are also glassed into the hull, spreading the chain plate loads fore and aft.
The Caliber deck is built with Marine Tech structural coring. The actual length of the hull (LOH) is 39'1", but the added anchor roller platform/ bow sprit makes the length overall (LOA) 40'11" The headstay is moved out twelve inches onto the anchor platform to increase the "J" measurement. Thus, opening up the slot between the headsail and the staysail to create an efficient cutter rig. The anchor roller extends even farther out beyond the headstay attachment point for easy storage of the main anchor. The 8" extension plates on the furling drum allows the anchor to be lowered and raised without the shank hitting the drum. Large anchor well locker with hatch contains a partition to separate rode and chain for 2 anchors.
