RE: 1981 Californian LRC for sale in N. Miami

I agree John, I will have to leave the Vetus bow thruster in but I can reduce it's battery bank size. Other than that the Syrens high power WiFi unit, AT&T Ericsson W35 and possibly the PuraSan with the Hold-N-Treat can come out. I even have a 1 year old VacuFlush system I could put back in and keep my Marine Elegance head.
Even with all this stuff removed she would be at the top of the list of any 1993-99 Mainship 40SB I have seen on Yacht World other than 1 other diesel model that has a hardtop and new diesels but the asking price is more than double what I would ask.
Every through-hull, hose, DC breaker panels, AC breaker panel, chargers and valve has been replaced on this boat. She has new water tanks and a new upgraded 36 gallon holding tank all are Poly. The bridge seating and dash was all re-fitted in 2008 and is custom. The hot water heater was upgraded to an 11 gallon Atwood all the sink fixtures were replaced, all navigation lights are the highest quality Perko LED, she has 4 blue under water transom LED lights, all interior lighting is modern LED even the arch/spreader lights are high intensity LED. She also has a new Good windlass that is top of the line rope/chain with foot pedal and dash mounted controls.
It is a one of a kind. I have receipts in 2007 totaling more than 170k not including what I paid for her in 2004-05. Probably close to $45k in electronics upgrades last year.

RE: 1981 Californian LRC for sale in N. Miami

I'm still waiting on 10knots to describe his boat and the condition. Asking price would be nice as well.
Anyone looking to sell a 1979-1983 34' Californian with twin NA diesel's?

RE: 1981 Californian LRC for sale in N. Miami

Bill,* I don't recall you saying what your plans were for this boat.

You must really like her if you put all that into her.

If the loop is a possibility, and your air draft excludes the Erie,* The ICW to Fla and the Bahamas is a good alternative.

If you ran her 1000hrs at 10gal/hr at $4.= $40k.

If you ran a Cali at 3.5gal/hr at $3.85=$13.5K.

Only 26.5k for taking a loss and starting all over, sounds like it is cheaper to keep her!

RE: 1981 Californian LRC for sale in N. Miami

It appears that way John, however I can't add diesel fired heat with a gas boat, or safetly change to Propane frig or stove, again it's still a gas boat, I want to downsize for many reasons some include slip costs and yearly homeport fees. There isn't much logic to it John but the boat will never in the near future be worth more than it is right now. I don't see the boating industry coming back anytime soon.
The boat is excess to my needs.

She is more boat than I am looking for 10knots, too bad I'm looking for a 34 Californian. Looks very nice though.

*BillyIII, everything's for sale for the right price.* How much would you like to potentially own hull #1?*

10 knots, check your LOA on the bottom of the homepage.* 42' 08"?* At 4' 08", it could fit in my bathtub!

I'm an idiot John but at least I admit it! Back from 2004-2007 I had more money rolling in than brains. If I knew what I know now I would have never spent that kind of money on a large gasser.

Education can be pretty expensive.* Here's some for free--1) If you want the lowest operating and maintenance expenses get a single engine boat.2) Don't limit yourself to one make if you are considering a trawler.3) Keep your boat simple, add equipment over time.

Enough said,* JohnP

I know how I want it outfitted. I would like a pair of small twins over a single for get home reasons.
Although I am taking your advice 2 engines= 2 transmissions = 2 coolers = 2 shafts = double the maintenence.
I do like the layout of the Californian 34. I have been in many Marine Traders (older models) their soft decks (because of the teak bedding), windows leaking*and wiring scares me.

RE: 1981 Californian LRC for sale in N. Miami

Bill,* One example is the Monk 36, I think they came without teak decks*with* 1 or 2 engines.

******* Albin made some 34 foot fast trawlers in* the 80s--no teck decks and a 12 knot cruise.

******* There are others that had their teak decks removed and non skid installed professionally in many makes.

******** Leaking windows can happen to any boat and can be fixed if caught early.
********
******** Get home engines are nice for Ocean Passages otherwise SeaTow works!
*********Never needed them myself, but I have BoatU.S. unlimited towing--I never used
******** either.

It sounds like you know what you want, so I wish you luck and all the best!

*Psssst Billy....single engine, and SeaTow or Towboat for the "get home"...150 bucks a year is pretty darn cheap....and leaves alot of spare space in the engine room...

sorry..had to put my 2 cents in...
