1988 Californian 48 Cockpit Motor Yacht

location icon San Pedro, United States
Year 1988
Length 48 ft
Builder/Manufacturer Carver

It’s been quite a few years since the last Californian 48 Cockpit Motor Yacht rolled off the production line, but quality construction and a well-executed interior continue to keep this flush-deck yacht popular on the used market. This vessel is the popular two stateroom two head layout. All the way forward is the guest stateroom with a centerline queen berth, private access to head with stall shower. Moving aft and to port is a full service galley with a large dinette to starboard that creates a large bed. Aft and up three steps is the spacious open salon. The full beam master stateroom all the way aft with centerline queen, private head with shower stall, lighted vanity and access to cockpit.

Cockpit Motor Yachts are a favorite among boaters today because they offer the Best of All Worlds. The fishing and diving enthusiasts have a fishing cockpit, and the entire family has a beautiful sundeck area, huge salon for entertaining and a plush aft master stateroom for privacy and the feel of being at home. 

Current owners enjoyed her for 11 years and have now retired out-of-state. She is very clean and would be fantastic for trips to Catalina, as a weekend condo or a live aboard.
