Californians

Hi.
New to this forum. I found it by Googling Marshall boats. I currently own a 1966 28ft Californian express cruiser. It was the first boats they made as Californian.*I know its not a trawler. I am however looking at 34 ft LRC's by Californian as my next boat. I will be in the trawler market soon. I will give my sons the 1966 Californian Express. Ive restored it and love the boat. Californian is now Navigator Yachts in Perris. Ive called and spoken to Jules and John (lead forman for about 35 plus years) asking questions when I was restoring my 1966. They dont have any manuals on this boat but remember the boat well and have given me info over the phone to help with the resto. Very nice people. Love the Californian line. Very sturdy hulls.

So what is the definition of long then?
I really don't know what they had in mind but most of the ones I have seen aka "Hatteras"* have 8-900 mile range I think as opposed to 250-300.

So something more then 3-400 miles is long range?
I just did a search and it seems that the most important factor is that at about 40' they all have 700 or so gallons of fuel and that up at 50' they ave 1,600 -3,000 gallons.** There were 4 pages if you just put LCR as the type.

RE: Californians

we have a 38' californian LRC, it holds 400 gallons of fuel. rough estimate is a fuel burn of apprx 1 gal per each 1 1/4 nautical mile = 500 nautical mile range depending your factual engine configuration and cruise speed etc.
i am somewhat a novice, that being said 500 NM doesnt seem long range to me..

RE: Californians

I would say any thing over 800 Nm at cruising speed can be considered Long range and that is with a 10% reserve.
