1983 Californian 42 LRC

Anacortes, United States


In a recent survey (yes, it's available), the surveyor verified: 

            "This is a nice Californian 42 LRC in better than average condition.  The vessel has been well maintained and has had numerous upgrades."

This Californian 42 LRC is a traditional trawler-style design with fantastic walk-around side decks, incredible deck space and an interior layout that feels roomy and bright. The true prize of this particular vessel is the engine room - you can tell her owners paid attention to her machinery and you'll find that these cared for 210hp diesel naturally aspirated Catepillar engines will treat you right.

Accommodating eight adults is no problem on this vessel: the aft master stateroom offers two double berths, the forward stateroom has stacked single bunks and the convertible dinette in the main salon is a nice double berth. The guest head is forward, and an ensuite head is aft, both with electric toilets and separate showers. The galley is up in the main salon, along with L-shaped seating with a high low table.

Additionally, it has wide and well-secured side decks, a bow pulpit and a deck access door at the lower helm.  Very Desirable Twin Naturally Aspirated 210hp Caterpillar 3208 engines will keep you cruising at a nice pace.  And with the generator, inverter and diesel heat - you can extend your cruising season all year long!

Highlights Include:

  • 7.5kw Onan generator
  • 2500w Victron inverter
  • Furno electronics
  • Weaver davit system
  • Recent detail to hull and brightwork
  • Vessel is very clean and has survey from May 2018!
