There really are not a great number of really wonderful blue water sailboats and this Cabo Rico 45 is one of them. She’s a pedigreed design by William Crealock built in Costa Rica by CR Marine which started with the Cabo Rico 38 in 1977. Cabo Rico, CR Marine is recognized for their continuous production of Cabo Rico since those great days of ocean going sailboats. The same family of highly skilled and dedicated craftsmen have been building these boats by hand for over 40 years. All the parts are sourced in the US except the famous Cabo Rico Teak grown especially for the factory. CR Marine is still in business building power yachts as well as sailboats. The build quality is robust and seaworther. The workmanship is excellent. The boat is built for the demands of the sea. Cabo Rico is surely among the very best blue water boats! The Cabo Rico 45 is particularly idea for a cruising couple.

This is a very special offering indeed! Kalista is a 2001 Cabo Rico 45 originally built by CR Marine for a very experienced sailor who knew exactly what he wanted. It took three years to build the boat. This lifetime sailor was building his dream boat and knowing this was the last sailboat he got everything he had ever dreamed of including in-boom furling mainsail, furling headsails, electric winches, water maker, bow thruster, solid ground tackle and windlass, Espar diesel heat, entertainment systems, and top of the line electronics and communications. And inside she is gorgeous….I mean really really beautiful. She has a special interior with a Herreshoff white and varnished teak. She is light and bright inside and really rare and special.

Kalista took so long to build that she was not even launched until 2007 and her first owners took her to the Bahamas and then just one trip to the Caribbean, back to Bermuda and home to Annapolis. Her second owner was a lucky sailor too. And he has maintained her and cared for her as the piece of art that she is. Kalista is special with many custom features and every comfort. It is quite wonderful that the custom dinette converts to a huge double berth so that you can sleep seven in comfort if you want.
