The Bayfield 36 has been called a Contemporary Classic, with its head-turning clipper style bow, handsomely carved teak trailboards, wine glass stern, and port & starboard belaying pins, but built to modern construction techniques.
The sheer line is a work of beauty, and the modified full keel has a cut-away forefoot to give the tracking benefits of a full keel, but with increased manueverability in tight quarters. She is a comfortable and solid cruising boat, capable of weekend cruising, or long distance passage making.
She has been very well maintained and updated by a meticulous owner and Maine boat yard. Calista should be given serious consideration.
The Forward Cabin has a double Pullman berth to port with teak ceiling strips against the hull. A Cedar-lined teak hanging locker and 3 drawers in the pedestal provide for storage.
There is a small seat with bureau and lockers, and a handsome book rack adds a finishing touch to this very comfortable master stateroom. Two opening side-ports & a screened overhead hatch provide abundant ventilation.
Next aft is a large hanging locker & Nav Station to starboard with a built in retractable ottaman. Port side features a large Head with sitting tub/shower with curtain. There is a manual flush toilet and attractive teak Vanity with stainless steel bowl, brass hot & cold faucets. Cabinet storage under counter and bulkhead mounted mirror. There are two opening window ports and overhead hatch.
Next aft is the main Salon with an L shaped settee to port that expands to a double berth, a large double drop leaf pedestal teak table with internal storage, and a single settee to starboard. A hanging brass oil lamp complements this area along with the Force 10 Propane cabin heater mounted on the mast. Outboard are attractive bookcases and storage lockers. A central feature of the main salon is the clipper ship style overhead hatch with screen that provides both light & ventilation to the area.
Next aft to port is a stateroom with double berth and hanging locker/closet. The companionway itself has a very clever built-in sliding screen hatch with side opening hinged screen doors.
Settee cushions, quarter berth and forward V berth cushion all recovered with fabric similar to Ultrasuade.
The starboard galley features a two burner propane stove with oven, polished hot & cold faucet with stainless steel sink and a manual brass salt water pump. The Refrigerator box has a Nova cool refrigeration system.
