1987 Californian 44 Veneti Cruiser in Huntington Beach, California

Stock #195888

The Veneti's early Med-style express cruiser profile is very much in keeping with contemporary trends. It's just that the Veneti came from Californian Yachts, a company whose designs were more likely to compete with Grand Banks than Riva. Californian Yachts was founded by Jule Marshall and Myrna Elliott, who played an important role in West Coast boat building. As an encore, they turned their talents to powerboats and established the Marshall Boat Co. in Tustin, California, which later became Californian Yachts.

Thanks to the Veneti's size, Marshall was able to give the 44' two private staterooms and -- even more impressive -- two full head compartments, each with a separate stall shower. Both staterooms carry double berths, including a generous-sized island berth in the forward (or master) stateroom.

The Veneti's saloon is not overly large. But it does have a semicircular booth-type dinette to port and a small settee to starboard. Likewise, the L-shaped galley is somewhat small, but does the job. Of course, the express cruiser layout is a large, sun-filled cockpit where everybody, including the skipper, rides on more or less the same level.

The 44 Veneti certainly has such a spacious cockpit, able to comfortably fit 25 or 30 people aboard for cocktail party harbor cruises.

The Veneti's cockpit does indeed promote fun, with a wet bar and a large insulated ice chest. And take a good look at the giant integrated swim step at the transom: At 4.5 feet wide, it's big enough to carry a dinghy or personal watercraft. More than a few Veneti owners have equipped their boats with a crane over the swim step for launching A dinghy.

Marshall's 44 Veneti was among the first express boats to sport an integral reverse transom, a feature that has since proven to be very popular. At the other end of the cockpit, the elevated helm gives the skipper good visibility. The arrangement of the instruments and switches include some useful upgrades.

The Caterpillar diesel will send the 44' Veneti to a top speed of nearly 25 mph, and the cruising speed at 2,350 rpm is around 20 mph.

They're reasonably heavy boats and weight, by the way, can be a good indicator of high-quality construction. In the Veneti's case, it also means there's a lot of boat in the water. The boat's rough water handling is outstanding.
