In terms of accommodations, no boat of comparable size comes close to the Caliber 40. Her sleeping quarters are true staterooms, expansive and private. Instead of a cramped V-berth, there's a full forward stateroom with a generous offset double berth with ample storage space and drawers below; shelf and book rack over berth; (4) clothing drawers; and large cedar-lined hanging locker with shelf storage. The master cabin features a private, spacious head with its own separate shower that's enclosed by a plexiglass door. Together, the forward cabin and head offer luxurious livability for extended stays.
The same kind of comfort and convenience is provided in the aft stateroom with its double berth; large cedar-lined hanging locker; and private aft-head entrance.
The main salon is well illuminated and richly furnished in teak. It takes full advantage of 6'5" headroom and a wide beam. The result is a "living room" that's perfect for entertaining guests. Two settees offer ample seating and sleeping room (for a total of 6 berths). Both settees have storage under and behind, and teak cabinets over. The twin-leaf dining table folds up against the bulkhead for additional space. The aft head is located conveniently to the cockpit. It's entrances from the aft cabin, and the salon make it accessible from either area without disturbing the other occupants. Both heads are completely outfitted with pressurized hot/cold water and shower.
The nav. station is port, aft of galley featuring chart table with hinged lid, with storage underneath; chart light; electronics cabinet; breaker panel; nav. seat with storage under. Beautiful teak and holly floor throughout, and multiple handrails.
Owner had a new mattress made for the OSR berth by Melbourne Mattress which they say was one of their best upgrades.
QUARTERBERTH: The Quarterberth has custom shelving on the starboard side going down the length of the berth. This berth is big enough for two small people or one large.
* Note: Nothing has ever been screwed to the teak bulkheads anywhere. They are as new. Owners use 3M foam tape to hold up Pictures but they removed with no scaring, with exception of behind areas are somewhat darker teak.
