The 34 Californian is the perfect cruising boat for a couple. With full walk around side decks and lower helm, it’s efficient and accessible for ease in cruising. With the 200HP Perkins diesels it will be very efficient on fuel at trawler speeds but has the capability of 18kt cruise. This is one of the nicest 34 Californions on the market with numerous mechanical and finish upgrades (Awl grip paint, bottom epoxy job, new fuel tanks, interior refinished etc, etc.) It’s turn key ready.

Salesman's Remarks

The entire boat was painted with awlgrip in 2005. The windows were replaced and rebedded in 2005. Both fuel tanks were replaced in 2005. This is a super clean trawler style boat that will easily plane. She is ready to go and priced to sell. She is a must see vessel.
