We are proud to label this boat sold. See you soon in Ormond Beach, Florida!



I just completed a transaction which, without the wonderful accommodating folks at Pop Yachts, would have never taken place. The boat is located in Key West, the broker in Bradenton, FL, the seller in Oklahoma, and here I am in Virginia. Pop Yachts is such a well-oiled and experienced brokerage company. When you think, logistically, that this is going to be a tough deal to complete, they have "been there, done that". Teresa Ortiz, my closing agent was awesome, totally efficient, professional and accommodating. Andy Baker, my broker, was right on top of everything, never hesitating to present to the seller an offer which I thought might be tossed into file 13! He was so efficient with offers, counteroffers and issues being handles professionally and in such a timely manner. Captain Steve Drakesmith, also from Pop Yachts, who lives in the Keys, and met me onboard when I flew in for my inspection, was extremely straightforward and accommodating. We have actually gone from my initial offer, to my holding the completed, executed, closing documents in my hand in about 3 weeks time! Thank you, to everyone at Pop Yachts, for your kindness, efficiency, and dedication to your part in completing my transaction. You have truly been "The Key" to a great transaction and to the start of many more boating memories for an old Captain who thought that he had bought his last boat many years ago! You guys have been great, Larry Sprouse

1983 Californian 43 MY Trawler in Key West, Florida

Stock #156140

Big, Spacious, Motor Yacht Trawler!

2 Big Cabins! 2 Full Heads, 1 with Tub!

Exterior cosmetic appearance is in need of some love because of dust, dirt, fading and non-maintained woodwork that once restored and oiled should turn heads. The bilge is clean and bone dry and very spacious. The engine room is huge, plenty of room and the 2 CAT 3208 engines look great!

The Californian brand by Jule Marshall has quite a following and is extremely well known by the trawler community. A lot is packed into the 43 foot hull with a nominal draft for coastal adventures but a deep V bow to take on bigger waves. Good headroom, onboard generator and onboard air conditioning for a comfortable home on your favorite waters.

Information On Condition

This boat needs a good going over to restore the fabulous woodwork and brightwork. Bilge is bone dry. Engine room clean and neat with Cat 3208's that appear to be beautiful and well maintained.

The Californian 43 MY is top of the line for trawlers and back in 1983, it was one of the masters. The owner took meticulous care of it, spared no expense and made sure it was always tiptop.

Unfortunately, the owner became sick several years ago and the boat has been neglected and not used and it shows.

There was minor hurricane damage, see photo of swim platform and the bimini top's canvas was torn up.
