The 43’ Californian Aft Cabin motor yacht is an American made coastal cruiser that’s as attractive as she is versatile. Jule Marshall succeeded in designing a quality yacht that both performs well and maximizes space, resulting in a boat that virtually does it all while feeling much larger than 43’.

With a full beam aft master cabin, forward guest cabin, homey salon, down galley and adjacent convertible dinette, spacious enclosed flybridge, roomy aft deck and large cockpit, this preferred configuration provides a variety of great spaces for entertaining, lounging, fishing, water sports, and just about any other adventure you dream up. Featuring rich walnut interiors, panoramic picture windows and new carpeting throughout, Home Away creates a truly pleasant environment.

A Mexico veteran, “Home Away” is a fine example of this popular model, with twin Cat 3208T mains, generator, fresh water-maker, air conditioning, new carpeting, batteries, new AC/DC refrigerator, new blinds, and new salon upholstery. She would make an excellent live-aboard or condo-on-the-water. Don’t miss out on this ideal family cruiser and memory maker.
