“If you are not winning as many trophies as you should, try a Cal boat. It does make winning easier.” That is the copy from a 1968 Jensen Marine ad for the Cal 2-30, pitching the boat as a low maintenance racer and family cruiser. Maybe that’s an oxymoron, however, it was a rocket in its time despite its cutaway forefoot, full keel design, and solid glass construction.
She also spirited an improved hull shape with a high balance-to-displacement ratio for stability in windy goings, a refined fin keel, and the Cal-famous spade rudder. The rudder on

It's Lapworth's bold (1970) new Cal 2-30 that was eating up some of of the highly regarded 35-40 foot racers, boat for boat. Look closely and you'll see a couple of the reasons why: her exceptionally long waterline for sheer speed, and her high aspect 15/16ths sailplan, and reverse transom for optimum CCA rating.
A look below reveals a magnificent interior. She boasts full standing headroom; she sleeps six on deep foam rubber berths and will seat them all at her U-shaped upholstered dinette; she makes cooking a pleasure at her kitchen-sized galley; she affords real privacy in her enclosed head.
This Cal 2-30 has an upgraded Yanmar diesel and she is constructed entirely of hand-layup fiberglass to Jensen Marine standards. Also, has an outboard with mount on stern.
