Broker's Comments

The Californian 42 features a semi-displacement design, a prominent bow and a long keel creating a well-tracking hull. The hull's hard chines decrease its potential for roll, and a flattened aft section provides added lift for higher speeds. Thanks to many windows and a practical layout it is perfect for Northwest cruising. The galley up design is located along the port side of the saloon, opposite an L-shaped convertible settee. The saloon features a complete lower helm station. The master stateroom is huge and features a large private head, shower and tub arrangement. This is a popular design and a very functional vessel. Not many come to market and the owner wants offers. Call to arrange a showing and let's see if this vessel will set you to sea.
She needs some attention however the bones appear solid! - Bring offers.
