Broker's Comments

**Updated Photos / Walkthrough Videos/ Virtual 360's Photos**
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. The current owner is accepting offers, please schedule a showing and see this truly unique boat.
