Charles M. Ungerbuehler/A true sportsman's boat with good looks and top performance-yet designed for the amateur builder working on a modest budget.

by Charles M. Ungerbuehler, Naval Architect

"Caballero" was designed for the amateur builder who desires a roomy, fast, and comfortable cruiser without the attendant high building and upkeep costs usually associated with inboard craft. She is a direct developmertt of an earlier design that has proved successful in the hands of a large number of builders. The cabin provides comfortable quarters for two. Besides the berths, it contains a galley stove, food locker, icebox, watercloset, and adequate storage space. There is not, of course, standing headroom. There is, however, ample sitting headroom. That is all you can expect in a boat of this size; so don’t be persuaded by some misguided amateur adviser to increase the headroom in hope of making a better boat of her. You have the word of the designer that you will not. "Caballero’s" rough-water ability will be excellent. The hull shows a pronounced flare forward and the maximum allowable deadrise consistent with her speed requirements. Her afterbody is of the constantsection type, which will insure comfortable banking on the turns and a smooth, disturbance-free, level ride.
