48' | Californian 48 Convertible | 1987
Beautiful 3 Cabin Sport Fisher
This is a loaded and well cared for 48' Californian Convertible. The owner purchased her from the original owner over 10 years ago and now ready to sell. Twin Detroit Diesel 6V92TA's easily push this hull to 24 knots and a nice cruise speed of 18 knots.
Three stateroom layout makes her great for larger families or multiple guests. The large galley and spacious salon are great for entertaining. The flybridge has great visibility and seating for all your guests. The yacht comes equipped with a hydraulic davit on the bow and rib tender with a Honda 15 hp outboard.
This yacht is perfect for fishing or diving as well as trips to Catalina or else where along the CA coast. Do not miss this opportunity to own a turn-key yacht.

The 48 Convertible was the largest flybridge sportfishing boat produced by Californian during the company’s many years of production. Built on a solid fiberglass hull with a well-flared bow and a shallow keel. Her standard three-stateroom layout was arranged with the galley and dinette forward in the salon and an amidships owner’s suite, while an alternate two-stateroom floorplan with a mid-level galley opened up the salon considerably.
A relatively narrow beam and wide side decks result in salon dimensions that are very modest compared with other boats her size. Early models came with dark walnut interior woodwork. A transom door was standard in the cockpit, and the tournament-style flybridge was arranged with lounge seating forward of the helm console. Additional features included separate stall showers in both heads, a molded pulpit, transom door, and wide side decks. Among several engine options, a pair of 550hp 6V92s cruise the Californian 48 at 21 knots (around 24 knots top).
Three staterooms layout with two head that both have separate shower stalls.
V-berth with filler in forward stateroom along with a uppersingle berth to starboard.
Starboard is the master stateroom w/pedestal queen size berth, storage, ensuite head w/ large tub and shower.
