TWISTED PAIR is a well kept CALIFORNIAN 38 that features a great interior layout ideal for cruisers or live-a-board. Her spacious layout has a large Air Conditioned salon with galley down and two air conditioned cabin berths. The forward Guest cabin has a twin berth and the large master cabin aft has a center line queen berth.  Both cabins have full heads and showers.  The lower helm has a starboard side sliding door for ease of going out on deck. The main salon is large with a starboard L settee, a Teak coffee table for a spacious and bright environment for owners and guests.

The 38 Californian is one of the most popular motor yachts produced in the United States. Many of the features found on these boats rival those of a 42 foot or larger boat.  A spacious flybridge seats six guests on port and starboard settees and the owner in a centerline helm seat. The covered aft deck has ample space for a table and six chairs with a transom gate and ladder leading to the swim platform.




Twisted Pair is a good looking motor yacht with a distinctive profile.  The Californian 38 Motor Yacht is built on a conservative low-deadrise hull with a moderate beam, a 3/4 length skeg keel and relatively flat after sections. Hull construction is solid fiberglass. Her floor plan is arranged with double berths fore and aft, and both heads are fitted with separate stall showers. The master stateroom is quite roomy for a 38' boat with numerous hanging lockers and drawers, The Galley is down and features a full sized refrigerator and plenty of counter space. Hinged steps in the forward companionway provide access to a particularly well designed engine room with good working space outboard of the motors. A bow pulpit, radar arch, teak handrails, and a swim platform, and davits are included.
