Juniper is a two owner, 1998 Caliber 40 LRC. Her original owner, a Merchant Marine Captain, did an extensive refurbishment in 2008 before selling her in 2009. Her current owner, a mechanical engineer has maintained her and upgraded her continuously. She is a very lightly used and low hour boat. All upholstery is original and shows the light and respectful use. She was cruised to the Bahamas seven times for two to three months each year since 2010. Other than those trips she has seen little use. She did not cruise in 2018 after being updated for an extended Caribbean cruise..

Juniper has had extensive updates recently:

  • All new Lewmar Ocean Series hatches installed fall 2017 with new Sunbrella covers
  • New Sunbrella dodger in 2017
  • All new lifelines and gates installed fall 2017
  • New Mack mainsail 2016 (This replaced the 1998 original mainsail)
  • New Mack genoa 2017
  • New Sunbrella bimini in 2015
  • Three Kyocerra 140 watt solar panels and MPPT controller added 2014
  • Katadyn Power Survivor 80e water maker added 2014 (a pump rebuild kit is aboard)
  • Garmin 24HD radar replaced in 2015
  • Maxwell 1500 windlass replaced in 2014
  • Three coats Pettit Ultimate SR 60 in January 2017
  • Pressure wash and one coat Pettit Ultimate SR 60 in January 2018
  • All interior lights upgraded to LED
  • Stern and anchor lights upgraded to LED

Juniper is set up for single handed and short handed sailing

  • All sails are controlled from the cockpit
  • The anchor can be raised or lowered from the cockpit
  • The wired Raymarine remote reaches to the bow to allow steering from the bow in shallow waters or when approaching a mooring ball.
  • The wisker pole is track mounted so it can be managed by one person
  • The combination of autopilot, radar alarm and AIS alarm makes long watches easier

Navigation Systems

Aft of the galley is the navigation station with a Garmin 4208 Chartplotter, Autopilot control head, Raymarine Multidisplay, ICOM M604 VHF radio, ICOM M710 SSB radio, battery monitoring system, propane detector, breaker panel, amp and voltmeters, Hummingbird AIS receiver, Furuno GPS and red/white LED chart light. A Hella fan can be turned toward the nav station or galley. There is room on the navigation desk for a laptop which can access the AIS and instrument data via USB connectors.

Cockpit

The cockpit area is well protected by the Sunbrella dodger (new 2017) and bimini (new 2015) and a zip in connector section. To starboard on the cabin top is a Lewmar 40 self tailing two speed winch serving the main sheet, main outhaul and main furling line. The mainsail (2016) is on a Z-Spar in mast roller furler. To port is a second Lewmar 40 self tailing two speed winch serving the main halyard, topping lift and stay sail sheet. (The stay sail is self tacking hence only one sheet.) The main sheet traveler lines lead through zippered openings in the dodger to the cockpit. The dodger has a zip out section in the window for ventilation.

Two Lewmar 50 self tailing two speed winches handle the jib sheets.

All four winches were one size upgrades from the Caliber factory standard size.

At the helm is a Garmin 4212 chart plotter, Raymarine wind instrument, tridata speed/depth/log, and autopilot control mounted in Navpods. A Richie compass is mounted on the binnacle as well as the Whitlock single handle engine control. There is a swing up table mounted to the front of the binacle for dining or drinks in the cockpit.

Aft of the helm are the ICOM Rammike VHF radio control and microphone, an auxiliary VHF speaker, stereo speakers connected to the Garmin XM radio / weather receiver, remote control for the Maxwell 1500 windlass (2014), Edson outboard motor mount, Lifesling, control lines for the Kato dingy davits and Kato outboard motor davit. To starboard are the furling lines for the Profurls on the genoa and staysail. The setup of the dingy and motor davits allow a single person to launch or retrieve the dingy and attach or remove the outboard.

 

Accommodations

Interior

The forward (master) cabin has a double berth to port with extensive storage below. A hella fan and LED reading light are mounted above. To starboard is a double cedar lined hanging locker, a vanity with mirror and swing out seat and additional storage. The large overhead hatch with OceanAir SkyScreen provides ventilation along with three portholes for cross ventilation. A 12 volt LED TV with DVD (new 2017) is mounted to the forward bulkhead.

The forward head is large with a separate shower area including a seating area for use underway.

The main salon is roomy and bright with 6' 5” of headroom. Another large overhead hatch with OceanAir SkyScreen provides ventilation along with four portholes for cross ventilation. The table stows upright against the forward bulkhead. Behind the table is a wine rack and additional storage. When lowered the table can have one leaf or both up providing abundant seating. A Sony stereo with CD changer, AM/FM, XM satellite and an input jack for phone, ipod etc. drives two bulkhead mounted Bose speakers. An additional LED TV with DVD player (new 2017) is mounted on the starboard bulkhead. This TV can also display the navigation station chart plotter's screen and is viewable from the cockpit as a backup or second display. The cockpit mounted cctv camera can also display on this TV giving a forward view while below decks. The starboard settee has two led reading lights and the port has one.

The port settee has a swing up extension and cushions to make it into a twin berth.

There is storage below and behind both settees and additional storage on shelves and in cabinets above. The 16,000 BTU 110 Volt Cruisair SMX-II AC/heat pump is mounted in the forward portion of the starboard settee with the digital control above the port settee. The SSB radio, Pactor II modem and CD changer are mounted to aft behind the port settee.

The galley is a classic L shape with a gimballed three burner Force 10 stove with oven and broiler. There is a small hatch directly above the stove for ventilation. Forward of the stove is a large top loading refrigerator with a small freezer section cooled by an Alder Barbour super cold machine. Either air or water cooling can be selected for the Alder Barbour. To the midship is a double sink with a Seagull fresh water filter. A manual foot pump below provides an emergency backup to the electric fresh water pump. There is a microwave mounted in the aft cabin easily accessible from the galley. The microwave can be run off the battery bank using the 2000 watt inverter.

Aft of the galley is the navigation station with a Garmin 4208 Chartplotter, Autopilot control head, Raymarine Multidisplay, ICOM M604 VHF radio, ICOM M710 SSB radio, battery monitoring system, propane detector, breaker panel, amp and voltmeters, Hummingbird AIS receiver, Furuno GPS and red/white LED chart light. A Hella fan can be turned toward the nav station or galley. There is room on the navigation desk for a laptop which can access the AIS and instrument data via USB connectors.

To starboard is the aft head with shower which is accessible from the salon or directly from the aft cabin. There is a small overhead hatch and a port light for ventilation.

The aft cabin has a single cedar lined hanging locker, a double berth with reading light and hella fan and storage below. The aft cabin can privately access the aft head. It has a small overhead hatch and two port lights for ventilation. The 6 gallon stainless water heater with 110 volt and engine heating is below the aft berth.

 

Additional Equipment

Aft of the cockpit are steps down to the swim platform and boarding ladder. A fresh water rinse off is to the starboard of the steps. The double cross bars on the davits provide an excellent handhold while entering or exiting a dingy from the stern.

 

Mechanical Equipment

Engine Compartment

The Yanmar 4JH2E engine uses a Kanzaki transmission and a PSS dripless shaft seal. The engine has a permanently installed electric oil change pump with a lockout switch and shutoff valve. The Balmar series 90, 120 amp dual output alternator was rebuilt in 2017 with new bearings and brushes. A spare set of bearings and brushes were also purchased and are aboard. The Balmar is regulated by the Heart battery monitoring system which includes a 100 amp 110 volt powered battery charger. The engine heat exchanger housing was replaced in 2016 when it developed a leak at a thin spot in the casting. The heat exchanger and mixing elbow were cleaned and inspected and were in excellent condition at that time. Shutoff valves are installed to allow the engine cooling system to be isolated from the water heater.

The prop is a Maxprop three blade 18 inch diameter feathering prop.

Aft of the engine is the house bank with three AGM 4D batteries for 540 amp hours. (The engine start battery is under the aft berth.) Aft of the batteries is an open area usable for storing oil, coolant etc. in a plastic bin. Next aft is a diesel heater which was never commissioned. It is not connected to the fuel system. Behind the bulkhead is the rudder post and quadrant. The thru hull rudder bearing bolts were replaced in 2017. The Raymarine Type 2 long linear drive for the autopilot is mounted to starboard as well as the AT130 auto tuner for the SSB. (These two pieces of equipment can be accessed from the aft berth.) To port is the Alder Barbour Super Cold Machine, Katadyn 80e water maker (4 gallons per hour) and the MPPT controller for the three 140 watt Kyocera solar panels. There is sufficient space in the engine compartment to carry a Honda 2000 or similar sized generator if desired. On the bulkhead are the valves for selecting the fuel and water tanks and the dual Racor turbo diesel filters with vacuum gauges.

 

Deck & Hull Equipment

On Deck

Starting forward is a Lewmar 88 pound Delta quick set anchor on 200 feet of 3/8 inch G4 chain handled by the Maxwell 1500 windlass (2014). Chain and anchor were re-galvanized in 2017 and are in excellent condition. The Genoa (120, Mack Sails 2016) is on a Profurl. A large anchor locker has room for storing the fenders and dock lines while underway. The Staysail is mounted on a Profurl on a removable rig. The rig can be raised and moved back nearly beside the mast. This allows easier tacking for racing, or the ability to stow a dingy on the foredeck for passages or storm season. The batten board on the port lifelines can secure three 5-6 gallon jerry cans.

All deck hatches, two Lewmar 60 Ocean Series and seven Lewmar 10 Ocean Series are new in Fall 2017. Sunbrella hatch covers are also new.

All new stainless lifelines and gates, Fall 2017.

The mast is a Z-Spar in mast roller furler with single spreaders. The boom is a Z-Spar with an outhaul track. The outhaul car has new Torlon bearings (2017). A Forespar wisker pole is mounted to the front track on the mast and can be handled by one person to pole out the genoa for downwind sailing. The mast end remains attached to the car on the mast track at all times making it much easier to handle.

This setup is ideal for single handed or couple sailing. All lines except the genoa halyard, staysail halyard and spare halyard are lead back to the cockpit. The boat can be sailed, reefed and trimmed without ever leaving the cockpit.

Two removable dorade vents provide cabin ventilation.

The Sunbrella dodger with window covers is new in 2017.

Farthest aft is the radar pole with Garmin GMR24HD radar, two VHF antennas (one AIS, one is a spare), TV antenna routed to both TVs, Furuno GPS antenna and stern light.

Mast top are two VHF antennas serving the two VHF radios, the wind instrument and an LED anchor light.

Galley Equipment

The galley is a classic L shape with a gimballed three burner Force 10 stove with oven and broiler. There is a small hatch directly above the stove for ventilation. Forward of the stove is a large top loading refrigerator with a small freezer section cooled by an Alder Barbour super cold machine. Either air or water cooling can be selected for the Alder Barbour. To the midship is a double sink with a Seagull fresh water filter. A manual foot pump below provides an emergency backup to the electric fresh water pump. There is a microwave mounted in the aft cabin easily accessible from the galley. The microwave can be run off the battery bank using the 2000 watt inverter.
