55 Cockpit Motor Yacht
Length w/ Pulpit:
Probably the best looking of Californians series of motor yachts, the 55 Cockpit MY is simply a Californian 48 MY with a 7-foot cockpit extension. Her rakish flush-deck profile has aged well over the years, and the 55 remains a sought-after boat thanks to her quality construction and excellent craftsmanship. Her three-stateroom interiorthe original floorplan had over/under berths forwardwas tastefully finished with teak woodwork throughout (dark walnut in pre-1988 models). A slide-out settee in the small guest stateroom aft of the salon converts into a double berth, and all three heads are fitted with separate stall showers. The upscale interior was lavishly decorated with quality fabrics and furnishings throughout. With her narrow beam and wide side decks, the salon dimensions are modest compared with those of other 55-footers. The aft deck, however, is very spacious as is the flybridge.
