looking for a californian

We are trying to locate a Californian LRC 34 in new England with twin Perkins 85's.* Please contact us if you know.* Our choice is a slow traler with the minimum noise level.*
Like those walk-around decks!!

RE: looking for a californian

We live in near the San Juan Islands and are also looking at Californian 34' LRC.
Will someone tell me the fuel usage with Perkins twin 85hp? Same question for 185's.

The marine Trader Sedan is an option for us as well.* I thought it was 34' not 36 in your reply.* Where are you located?

Can you give us any details?

RE: looking for a californian

About 1.2GPH at 1850RPMs per engine....obviously prop pitch would have an effect on this. This was the fuel burn on my Prairie 29 with a Perkins 4236 in it. SO I would guess around 2.5GPH at about 7.5kts in the Cali 34....again...just a WAG.

LRC means Long Range Cruiser.

Where is the boat located?* Any details?* I am looking at a '89 Marine Trader Europa Sedan right now.

RE: looking for a californian

I have the twin 85HP Perkins. I burn about 3.5 gph at 8 kts, which is my cruise speed (2400 RPM). WOT is 10 Kts (2800 RPM).

It's a little better than 2 MPG...with 250 gals on board, that's 500 miles with reserve. LRC!!
