Hello All,

1978 38 foot Californian LRC Long Range Cruiser / Trawler for Sale. Twin Diesel Perkins Engines.


Californian 38 Long Range Cruiser Aft Cabin Flybridge Twin Diesel Engines for sale. Marina Del Rey, California Slip.

For your consideration is this 1978 Californian Trawler/LRC with just 800 hours on the twin diesel Perkins engines (185 hp each).

This boat has a fresh survey, and only 2 owners since 1978. Located in Southern California all its life. The original owner was the manager of the Beverly Hills Cadillac dealership. The second owner was an optometrist who kept this vessel for over 30 years at the Del Rey Yacht Club. Because the previous owners were busy professionals, is the reason this boat has very low hours. Only 800 hours* since 1978 is essentially like a new boat.

I have owned the boat for 1 year. (I was planning to live on it, but life has other plans!)

The mechanicals and engines are in fine working order.* The oil and fuel filters were just changed. This boat is ready for ANY long range expedition or adventure or even a cruise to Catalina!


This boat is located in an easily transferrable slip in Marina Del Rey, CA. Live aboard is easily approved. This boat is perfect for live aboard or as a weekend condo/ getaway vacation home. Strategically located, only a 10 minute/ $20 cab ride from LAX airport!

2 minute walk from Charthouse and Cheesecake Factory, or the Ritz Carlton. 10 minute walk to the beach.

This boat is PRICED TO SELL at just $54,995. Please check the market and compare prices/condition.

Is there a catch? Yes. The boat needs new varnish , and decks painted, as well as the bottom painted. Interior carpet and drapes can be upgraded. This is about $3-5,000 worth of work which the new owner may want to do. This is purely cosmetics.

The most important thing you need to know is that the engines and mechanicals are in good working order. The boat is almost new in terms of the engines. What this means is that you can enjoy the boat TODAY and go anywhere RIGHT NOW. The price is made with these considerations in mind.

This is a CLASSIC yacht which holds its value and you are buying at the bottom of the market. What this means is that once the economy stabilizes, the value of your boat is likely to increase significantly.
