Meet Sailing Vessel Siren, a 1978 Cal 39 MKII Tall Mast, Hull number 47.

Siren is a 1978 Cal 39 Racer/Cruiser that can hold six paying passengers. She was built tough for trans-oceanic crossings in all weather with a very thick hull and over-built rigging. From her christening out of the Jensen Marine yard in Costa Mesa, California, her history is mainly unknown, however she did end up on the East Coast of the US, then back to California and sailed to Hawaii where I bought her in 2015.
