The Californian 52 Cockpit Motor Yacht is a substantial boat that makes a great cruiser or liveaboard. It has two large staterooms, two heads, a galley and dinette, and a comfortable salon. On the surface it looks quite untidy, but underneath it all appears to be in good shape. It will require canvas, bottom paint, more cosmetic work and could benefit from updated electronics, but at the price it is still a good deal. Photos current as of Jan 1. 2014. Seller is beginning projects to restore this beauty to her proud Californian glory. The price will escalate as each project is completed. Projected finish date for all projects is Mid February 2014. This is the lowest priced Californian on the west coast! ACT NOW ON THIS VESSEL BEFORE THE PRICE GOES UP!!!!
