1993 Caliber 40 'Tasman'

1993 Caliber 40 ‘Tasman’ (1993)

The design of Tasman, 1993 Caliber 40, is a very attractive cutter with a bowsprit and a bobstay that get the ground tackle well away from the bow during anchoring. The boat has a straight sheer and a reverse transom with a small but very handy swim step and a boarding ladder. The deck is cored with marine plywood rather than with foam or balsa and the layup of the hull is solid fiberglass which accounts for some of the 21,600 lbs of displacement. It has a fully encapsulated, elongated fin keel that has an iron and concrete ballast of 9,500 pounds. Her ballast to displacement ratio is a very respectable 44% – good to find on a boat intended for bluewater use. The rudder is skeg hung for protection and tracking and her waterline is just over 32 feet.

Owners comments: Tasman has served us very well for the past seven seasons. She is comfortable, easy to handle, and safe. She has taken us from Grenada all the way up the island chain to the US Virgin Islands. We have seen calms when motoring is called for and 35kts when a double reef and staysail were necessary.
As we are now beginning to collect grandchildren, we are looking for a slightly larger boat with a three-cabin layout in the hope that they will want to join us on our winter home.
Tasman was well looked after by her prior owners, we have tried to live up to that standard and have maintained and continuously upgraded her over the years. She is ready to sail away with everything on board you need to start your new sailing adventure. Just as we did seven years ago.
A 2016 survey rated Tasman in “above average condition” in surveyor speak.

We think Tasman is one of the prettiest and most well-equipped Caliber 40s out there.
