First time sailing? Not to worry Back Bay Sailing Adventures features a Cal 39 MKIIIShe is a 39 foot sailing yacht with ample room on deck and down below in the salon. The Capt. and crew will make sure you are comfortable and relaxed.

The entire CAL 39–hull, deck and interior is the work of the master, Bill Lapworth, whose classic boats are simply legends. And "classic" isn't a characteristic a designer applies to a boat, it's a recognition that the boat must earn.
