This well built Motor Yacht is ready to cruise


Includes a 10' Dingy with a 15hp Johnson Motor

Welcome Aboard The “PAULA T”, as she is affectionately called.  This beautiful, fresh water, well maintained boat offers two private and spacious staterooms, each with their own double berth and private head with stall showers, a very open salon with large windows, full galley equipped to prepare the finest meals afloat and a fully enclosed fly bridge and aft deck with wing doors. She easily SLEEPS EIGHT comfortably. Powered by Twin Diesel Caterpillar 3208s with a 12.5KW Onan generator.

She has custom window treatment throughout, mesmerizing wood flooring, indirect lighting, stunning teak and cabinetry woodwork.  This is a great potential as a live aboard or weekend condo with plenty of room for entertaining. Very well priced for her condition and size, “PAULA T” is a MUST SEE to truly appreciate her beauty. Bring us your offer today and let’s make it happen!

Additional features include wide side decks, a roomy fly bridge with the helm forward and aft seating, a bow pulpit, radar arch and Marquipt Sea Stairs for boarding. Well known to be a solid boat, the Californian 42 will handle seas and a chop very well.

Salon is down with wood flooring, area rug, cabinetry for storage, flat screen TV, bar area and an L-shaped shaped fabric sofa on starboard that converts to a bed. 

Galley is down with full U-shaped dinette (that easily converts to a double bed) SS sinks with garbage disposal, refrigerator with freezer, electric stove with oven, drawers and cabinets, microwave and plenty of cabinet space for food preparation.

Forward she has a large guest cabin with centerline double berth, closets, electric head and stall shower. 

The spacious master aft cabin with centerline queen berth, custom window treatments, nice built-ins on each side, flat screen TV and storage offers luxury accommodations on the water.  A master electric head also has a stall shower and storage.  The stackable Washer/Dryer is easily accessible being located in a closet just outside the master.

An older survey is available to potential buyers.

A great yacht for family cruising or entertaining a crowd.

You'd be hard pressed to find another this nice!
