Boat Details

2006 Caliber 47 LRC SE


Sailing Vessel Loka is a 2006 Caliber 47 LRC SE, a center cockpit cutter-rigged sloop made of fiberglass. She was built in St. Petersburg, FL in 2005, and is hull #18 of the 25 total Caliber 47 boats that were built. Loka has been an US East Coast boat all her life, traveling down to the USVIs and BVIs in addition to New England and the Chesapeake Bay. This is Loka’s 3rd ownership family, and the first time that Loka will host a fulltime liveaboard crew. Previously, Loka was primarily a vacation boat and a weekender vessel. She is very much looking forward to expanding horizons beyond her currently known waters.

Current Setup, as of July 2023

Rigging: most standing rigging is original, though the port backstay replaced in 2023. New standing rigging is targeted for 2024. Running rigging is a mix of New England Sta-set (poly double braid), Endura (dyneema), and Viper/VPC (hybrid) of varying ages. Both headsails are on roller furlers, and the mainsail is setup for in-mast furling (replaced with brushless motors and modern controllers in 2023). All of it is Selden. The cutter configuration is under evaluation because the staysail (the inner forestay sail) is unusable when the dinghy is lashed to the deck. We are considering changes to that when we get around to the standing rigging replacement.

Sails: As a cutter rig, Loka has 3 Quantum sails in the daily setup currently. The main is 431sqft. The staysail is 268sqft, and the genoa is a 125% 664sqft. We have plans to get a lightwind sail at some point. 

Motors: The auxiliary engine is Yanmar 4JH4TE-2.7 75hp diesel motor installed in 2013. A ZF Hurth transmission drives a prop shaft with a 3-blade Luke feathering prop attached to it. The diesel generator is a 5.5kw Northern Lights unit. Loka has a 277gal capacity for diesel fuel split amongst 3 tanks. Tank 1 is the largest at 150gal and sits under the companion way, and the tanks 2 & 3 are in the stern of the boat on each side, 60gal each.

Electrical: The current house bank is comprised of 4 4D Lifeline AGM batteries, which are on their last legs. We have signed a contract to replace them with three 300a Kilovault LiFePO batteries as well as all the accompanying upgrades for the lithium upgrade. We have about 300w of solar spread out amongst 4 small panels on top of the cockpit hardtop. 

Fresh Water: With 110gal capacity in tank 1, located in the bow, and 150gal in tank 2 located directly below the salon, Loka has a large capacity for fresh water. She’s also equipped with a Spectra DC watermaker. 

Interior: Her all teak interior is warm and inviting. The large settees have extra thick cushions and are covered in a navy blue leather-like material. 

Electronics: We’re a Furuno boat, mainly because that’s what came with the boat. As we understand more about what we have, we are learning how it’s all put together. Currently, the nav station is equipped with a 9″ Furuno NavNet TZTouch multi-function display set as the main unit. The helm is equipped with a 14″ NavNet TZTouch multi-function display. Loka is also equipped with VHF, AIS, and an HF radio for SSB.
