The 1990 Californian 52' Cockpit Motor Yacht "Gizmo" represents the latest Californian model that was buil at the Rocky Point North Carolina Factory under the guidance of John Adams, former Hatteras Director of Operations, and other key industry talent.
Latest model factory attributes such as white gel coat, wrap-around bridge helm dash and helm area storage, fiberglass stringer system in lieu of wooden stringers, aluminum framing in the engine room overhead, an appealing balance of teak wood accents, solid surface counter tops and other subtle features. Every room has opening windows or port lights for fresh air!!!
Two Staterooms each with ensuite head with separate shower. Tub/shower in the master head. A truly versatile and sizeable seven foot long cockpit that features direct door access to the aft cabin, room for a storage deck box and lazarrette area that allows for easy access to the aft bilge, steering and rudder posts, storage, and expanded fuel capacity. And the ever popular engine room space with access via the galley steps.
One of only a few 52 CMY built before the "Luxury Tax" and subsequent marine industry maneuverings that ceased Californian production. Critics say; "The appearance of quality is no illusion. A good ride in a chop."- Powerboat Guide
"Gizmo" features a custom aft deck enclosure and "V" berth in the forward stateroom- a versatile arrangement that also offers far more forward stateroom floor area.
