Power Boat Guide Description
The 48 Convertible was the largest flybridge sportfishing boat produced by Californian during the company’s many years of production. Built on a solid fiberglass hull with a well-flared bow and a shallow keel. Her standard three-stateroom layout was arranged with the galley and dinette forward in the salon and an amidships owner’s suite, while an alternate two-stateroom floorplan with a mid-level galley opened up the salon considerably.
A relatively narrow beam and wide side decks result in salon dimensions that are very modest compared with other boats her size. Early models came with dark walnut interior woodwork. A transom door was standard in the cockpit, and the tournament-style flybridge was arranged with lounge seating forward of the helm console. Additional features included separate stall showers in both heads, a molded pulpit, transom door, and wide side decks. Among several engine options, a pair of 550hp 6V92s cruise the Californian 48 at 21 knots (around 24 knots top).
