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 and is a fun family boat for weekend getaways or for some fun club racing. "CJ" needs some TLC; nothing a handy captain couldn't take care of and represent a good opportunity. Come take a look and make an offer.

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 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. Opposite to starboard is a large ice box 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. Furthest aft to port is a large double berth with opening port for ventilation. On the port bulkhead adjacent to the companionway is a Xantrex control panel for monitoring the batteries.
