1987 Californian Cockpit Californian has earned a strong reputation in the industry for above average construction standards, high quality components and great resale value. The American Made trawler style motor yacht became popular with the long range cruiser market not only for the stability and comfort while underway, but the economy at trawlers speeds.  Shoppers seem to notice quickly that the Californians don't seem to have the interior wood issues found on most similar vintage competition.    The 55 Californian is known for her large cockpit, which is great for line handling and gives great access to the swim platform through the transom door, and to master stateroom through sliding door.  The aft deck is large enough for a party and lends access to the rest of the vessel. The side doors lead to roomy side walks to foredeck, companionway to the interior, steps up to bridge and down to aft cockpit.   The 3 stateroom floorplan is a live-aboards dream. Each stateroom has its own head with separate shower. The master has an island style bed with windows on three sides and a large mirror of forward wall making use of all the natural light. The ladies station is just aft of the enclosed head and shower. The salon also has large windows on three sides making her feel open and airy as well. The windshield forward is over the galley and booth dinette like a large skylight. If your looking for a condo on the water with ample storage space this might be the one.  Vessel is priced at 50% below market because the port engine needs to be rebuilt. No blisters on last haul out 9/18. New batteries (4-8Ds) 6/19, New Canvas top 7/19.
