The accommodations aboard the Cal 39 are open and spacious for a boat of this size.The interior is built of teak. The cabin sole is teak and holly. Many cabinet doors are faced with rattan for ventilation. There is a well-lit double quarter berth, in an enclosed cabin, to port including a custom copper vanity with sink and hanging locker.The Nav station is to port forward of the aft cabin with ample room for electronics and a chart table. The main salon has plush upholstered settees, which will comfortably sleep crew on both sides. A large centerline, drop-leaf table easily accommodates guests for dinner and yet folds away for access forward and a roomy feel. Bookshelves throughout the salon maximize space and add to the open feeling.A thoughtful touch is the leaded glass wine cabinet adding a bit of luxury. The head is forward and to port with white walls and countertop with a custom copper sink for a bright clean look. The V-berth is comfortable for her owners with all natural, custom wool and latex bedding.
