Some said you could not build a high quality yacht at a competitive price in North America. Well, someone forgot to tell the Marshall Family! They built top quality yachts - the Californian and the Navigator - for over forty years. Wonderful yachts with solid fiberglass hulls, built with the rigors of the Pacific Northwest in mind.
From this tradition came "Continuance" a 1983 Californian 50 Long Range Cruiser. The past owners have spared no expense in maintaining Continuance to a high standard.. A mystical yacht with a history and stories to tell in the fading light of the setting sun. For a great cruiser or a marvelous live aboard ¦come visit Continuance.
Entering is from the swim platform through a locking gate onto the stern deck. From there along the starboard side walkway to the full size entrance door. The walkway is wide enough to walk comfortably and is guarded by a waist high teak railing set on solid stainless steel posts.
Upon entering the yacht one is struck by the brightness and the visibility. Large windows on the port side, starboard side, and the helm windows fill the salon, the galley and the helm with natural light. One immediately gets the feeling of wow! What a cool, cozy, comfortable place to be!
To left, stern side, is the salon/dining area with an L shaped blue leather sofa wrapped by large windows stern and starboard. Ahead slightly to the right, port side, is a full - let's get cooking galley. Directly right, starboard side, is the helm with a large high back leather helm chair and all of the electronics and controls required for safe cruising.
Left astern a few short steps up port side lead to a door and the tender deck. Down a few steps and you're into the master cabin with private head and shower. A queen size bed with access from either side dominates the cabin. As with the rest of the yacht ample storage is discreetly placed all around
Returning forward past the helm, down a couple steps are the second head, guest cabin, and VIP V-Birth cabin. As with the rest of the yacht there is ample storage, cupboards, closets and drawers. Of course warm teak veneer and solid teak trim as elsewhere on the yacht create a wonderful welcoming feeling. .
Access to the engine room is through a hatchway revealed by listing the stairs to this area.
