The Californian 34 Long Range Cruiser is a classic styled trawler introduced by Marshall Boat Company in the 1970's and was a domestic alternative to the imported trawler industry. Californians are noted for their all fiberglass construction and their very solid build.

"Downunder" has two staterooms, a single head and separate stall shower, nice salon and galley-up, mahogany woodwork, large opening salon windows, pilothouse door, lower and upper helm stations, wide walk around decks with solid high bulwarks, functional cockpit and a large flybridge. She is a great family cruiser that sleeps six.

"Downunder" has twin Perkins 6-354M 135hp diesels which are miserly on fuel, providing a cruising speed of 8-10 knots. Her current owner did a major upgrade in 2001 to make "Downunder" independent of shore connection for long periods while cruising in the remote Bahamas. That upgrade included a new 8kw generator, increased battery capacity, inverter, trim tabs, propane stove, microwave, windlass (rebuilt 2019), Sea Recovery Watermaker, hinged engine room hatches and much more. In 2006, a fuel polishing system was added, and complete top to bottom awlgrip paint. In addition, she has a new refrigerator/freezer (2019), custom hinged cockpit sunshade (2012), and in 2018 new Bimini and Flybridge cushions.
