You won’t find this much boat in such good condition for a price like this. Fandango is in the water and ready to sail. She is a graceful and classic Cal 34 deck-stepped sloop, designed by C. William Lapworth for Jensen Marine. She is a strong, safe, comfortable cruiser/racer that can sleep six. The interior has a spacious and bright cabin with galley and table, a large double V-berth, two quarter berths and the large settee converts into a double berth. The cushions are new. She’s been great for weekends and extended trips in the Apostle Islands and beyond.

She is solid and stable in big winds and waves, yet quick and responsive at the helm. Full set of sails for both cruising, heavy seas, and racing. Solid fiberglass hull and deck with integral keel (no keel bolts). Professionally maintained and many upgrades including new cushions, teak interior and brightwork, sails and rigging, AC and DC electrical systems, engine fuel tank and lines, re-gelcoated, head/toilet and holding tank, solar collector, etc.

This Classic has been much loved and will last another 50 years. The owners are selling due to health issues.
