This 1988 48ft Californian CPMY is one of the most popular yachts, of her size ever built.  Plus, this 48CPMY is one of the last built in Tustin, at the old plant and yard.  Yacht has and is being maintained at a high level and it shows.  The Teak interior is absolutely beautiful, and along with the high level of quality of workmanship she is spectacular.  This Californian was built with a galley down and 2-stateroom layout.  Forward VIP Stateroom and Aft Master Stateroom have Island Queen beds and each with a private head and separate shower.  Both heads were upgraded with Granite cabinet tops, tile floors, and showers with etched glass shower doors. 

One of the great safety features in this yacht is an access and exit door, (escape door) to the cockpit from the Master Stateroom.

The large Salon is well laid out for comfort with a well-appointed galley with horseshoe shaped settee.

The sundeck comes with a factory hardtop which is enclosed. The enclosed deck is equipped with a refrigerator/icemaker, wet bar, and is air conditioned.

Further aft and down to the cockpit (easy line handling), there is a transom door to the swim platform for handling the tender or down the ladder to swim.
