Boat Description

50 Calkins 64 Elena

The Calkins 50 has the elegance and beauty of yachts built at the turn of the century, yet was 30 years ahead of its time when introduced. An ultra-lite, canoe body with short over-hangs, fin keel and monocoupe construction.

When a very successful yacht designer bought one for himself, I asked him why? He said it does everything well

I personally have never been able to walk by one without stopping to admire the design.

A new copy today would cost $1.5 mil or more!

The last three that sold, went for $134K, $100K and $200K. Owned by 2 marine professionals, she is in excellent condition and is offered at $99K
