New owner, older Californian 48 CPMY

After nearly 24 months of looking, and two boats that failed surveys, yesterday we took ownership of a 1987 48 Californian CPMY that was extended 5'. Twin Cat 375 TA's with reasonable hours, bow and stern thrusters (to spin donuts), custom hardtops for the bridge and sundeck, solar panels, the list goes on. We shopped long and hard but we bought a well found boat at a very attractive price. Honk if you see us slide by, she will be named "Coddiwomple" and will be moored in Anacortes until a slip opens up in Friday Harbor.

I've got a 1991 52' Carver Californian. You will love your boat! My only rub is that I wish it had better side deck access for docking. Enjoy!

Cheers, Bill

Congrats!! Pics please. I also think your engines are 3208 T/A. 375 hp.

Our Camargue is very similar to Californians.

Tom, I always admired your boat's layout.

How do you pronounce Camargue?

This is the only article I could ever find 2008 Sea Magazine:

FOUNDED: 1986
FOUNDER’S NAME: Henry Chiu

Henry Chiu began his boat-building
career in 1975 as a manager of Ocean
Marine Co. and Ocean Alexander Marine
in Taiwan.He went on to found
Camargue Yacht Co., Ltd. in Kaohsiung,
Taiwan in 1986.Camargue has built several
different yacht designs over the
years, mostly for export to the U.S.and
other countries.

The company’s first yacht, the
Camargue 48 Yachtfisher,was designed
by Charles Chung and completed in
1987. By 1992, 55 of the 42 Sundeck and
48 Yachtfisher models had been delivered
to America, Europe,Australia,
Canada, Japan and Hong Kong.

Since 1992,Camargue’s manufacturing facility
has produced even larger vessels, such
as Offshore Yachts 52-foot Sedan, 55-
foot and 62-foot Pilot House and 62
Flush Deck.Camargue has built and
delivered 93 boats to Offshore Yachts.
After 22 years,Camargue Yacht Co. is
a very experienced and qualified
builder, with a highly skilled workforce.
Using the highest quality, made-in-USA
components and systems, every yacht is
finished to yacht-quality standards in
every detail.Camargue stands behind
the yachts it builds, and everyone works
together to make the best product for
the customer.



The Out Islander 64-foot Long
Range Cruiser is currently in production
at Camargue.Greg Sturgis, the East
Coast distributor for Offshore Yachts,
worked with the late Tom Fexas to create
this new yacht, which was designed
from the keel up for a special niche: the
owner-operated long-range cruising
yacht.The Out Islander 64 has the speed
to outrun bad weather (with a top
speed of 20-plus knots), with the range
and ability to cross oceans at more
modest speeds. It draws a scant 4 feet,
10 inches, but retains excellent directional
stability because of its long shallow
keel.Making the hull as strong as
possible, while keeping the weight
down, is achieved with hand-laid solid
structural fiberglass below the waterline
and vacuum-bagged Core-Cell structural
components above the waterline.
The lighter weight also contributes to
fuel efficiency. It will be unveiled at the
Spring 2009 boat shows.

Key personnel at Camargue include
Henry Chiu, company president; Jim Wu,
managing director; and Clare Huang,
production engineer.

Wow. Wrong again!
That explains why I always felt the Cam/Uni origins didn't look right. Yours always seemed a little bigger in width and height, and definitely a newer look.
We have only one camargue in our YC, but several Uni 48s. There are striking similarities, but not enough to look perfectly alike.
