Naval Architect Jule Marshall founded
Navigator Yachts in 1987; however he had been building the highly
regarded "Californian" line of yachts since the late 1960's.
hallmark of his designs are hulls that get up on plane quickly with
smaller, more economical engines. Another feature is the 360 degree
visibility from the helm which allows a couple to operate the vessel
without any other assistance; there are two ways to access the bow from
the cockpit, either along the narrow port and starboard walkways with
grab rails, or going through the salon and out through the sliding door
on the starboard side of the pilothouse.
By widening the salon
out to nearly the full beam, the design makes the best use of interior
space, yet still allows for a narrow walk around deck. A good compromise
between practicality and comfort.
The hull is solid fiberglass,
no coring material is used in the hull. Another excellent feature of the
Navigator is the use of aluminum stringers and beams for floor support,
which is much lighter and stronger than wooden members used by most
other builders. The insulation is exceptional and affords the quietest
boat ride you will ever have!
The auxiliary machinery space is
forward of the engine room and separated by a bulkhead and door and this
houses the air conditioning units, battery chargers, access to the
washer and dryer, and other equipment, as well as a good location for
tools boxes and other storage items.
With over 1000 Navigators and
Californians built since 1988 these yachts were produced in
Southern California until just recently, and are among the most respected U.S. built
semi-custom yachts available today. (Californians are the single engine
Long Range Cruiser models built by Navigator).
