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; and two-door large cedar-lined hanging locker and one-door locker with shelf storage. The master forward 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 tall headroom and a wide beam. The result is a "living room" that's perfect for entertaining guests. Two settees offer ample seating and one of them even converts into a double berth (for a total of 7 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 convenient 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.Galley
A gourmet cook will appreciate this galley with its LPG stove with oven, built-in microwave, a 6 cu.ft. top loading refrigerator/freezer box, large premium double stainless steel sink, lots of storage
for food and utensils, and an L-shaped counter for space to prepare meals.
And, unlike some galley designs, ventilation is a priority. Flow-through ventilation is accomplished with its two dedicated portholes and two dedicated overhead hatches. This in addition to its location beside the large companionway opening.
As with all LRC Series yachts, every conceivable spot is used for storage so no volume is wasted. The icebox is super-heavily insulated with a 4-layer of premium two- part expandable foam that fills all voids. A super energy efficient process.

Main Salon -- Fold away bulkhead table creates space for entertaining guests or for quiet relaxation.
The Main Salon takes full advantage of the wide beam to provide an expansive main living area. The main salon, with the table up, provides a nice place to sit, have a drink, watch TV, or read a book. With the fold-up bulkhead table (wine and magazine rack behind) down, it creates the perfect area for dining with a large group when the occasion arises.
Storage in the main salon abounds. There are large storage lockers under, behind, and above both the port and starboard settees. Shelves, with book bars, are located outboard of the settees as well.
When extra guests arrive,
the port L- shaped settee easily converts into either a large single berth, or a small double.
Teak hull panels make
this a warm and inviting area. An area where the majority of your time below will be spent.

Not one, but two heads for owner and guest privacy.
Uncommon for a yacht of this size is having two heads. A dedicated owner's head and another for guests. The guest head has dual accessibility. It can be accessed from the main salon area during the day, or private access for guests in the aft cabin at night. The forward head has a walk-in shower stall which is independent of the basin/toilet area. Its further protected by a large plexiglass shower door. There is also a built-in shower seat with teak slates.
Both heads feature large basin/toilet areas. There is plenty of elbow room and plenty of storage, above and below the sink. To make cleaning and maintenance easy, these are the only interior areas that are built using fiberglass components.
Premium quality hoses and solid PVC piping help reduce the mildew odor usually associated with marine discharge systems. Additionally for further odor prevention, the large holding tank for both WCs is located well forward in the bow of the yacht where it is completely isolated from the rest of the yacht interior.Nav station
A Dedicated Nav Station -- For the Serious Navigator.
The dedicated navigator's station, located aft near the companionway, gives the navigator a secure location to plot a course and to monitor the electronics. Adjacent to the nav seat is a communications porthole. This makes communicating with the helm station very easy.
There is extra space to accommodate a full range of electronic navigation equipment on the drop-down mounting surface designed for this purpose. Even a radar display is possible As in other areas of the 40LRC SEries yacht, every available cubic inch is turned into usable storage. The working surface of the chart table is large enough to make chart reading and plotting easy. The lid raises for instrument and chart storage, with additional storage under the seat.

What sets a Caliber apart from the fleet of her rivals Is it her swiftness, her seaworthiness and durability. Her exceptional stability and comfort as Caliber owners know, it is the artful combination of these qualities, which enables a Caliber to perform beyond the limits that constrain so many others. How swiftly a boat sails, how well she handles, and how she weathers the sea are the result of her design. At Caliber, efforts at the drawing board have produced the ideal underbody configuration for Long Range Cruising, but not at the cost of maneuverability or speed.
A modified fin keel with skeg-hung rudder makes a Caliber exceptionally responsive and quick. And she has outstanding directional stability, which enables her to keep a true course, even through pounding seas. Together, these characteristics add up to cruising performance unmatched by a racing fin or full-keel design.
Special features enhance your safety at sea.Caliber hulls are built for outstanding resistance to collisions, with extra layers of solid fiberglass at potential impact points. In case of damage to the bow or rudder, a Watertight Collision Bulkhead and a Rudder Dam are designed to minimize flooding. The keel is not only of a one piece integral construction, but it?s also double-sealed for an added layer against grounding damage.
