History and Ownership

We know this very beautiful 55' Californian quite well, having sold it to her most recent owners here in Washington in early 2013.  Since then we have either completed, supervised or contracted all of the work done aboard the boat by other local professionals.

Most unfortunately, health issues now preclude their continued use.  She has been used only sparingly while being exceptionally well maintained, serviced and provisioned under their care.

"Novel Lady" was previously owned by a New England couple for many years and she was named for the passion and profession of the owner's wife, who enjoyed her as a writer's retreat.   We trucked this boat to Seattle late in the winter of 2012.  On arrival we reassembled her and assisted her new Seattle owners through that transition with myriad upgrades as they desired.  She received her new deck and flybridge canvas enclosures and her beautiful professional red paint trim scheme in April 2015.  Bottom was painted, new zincs and wheels polished at that time as well. 

Over these past couple of years she has seen summer vacation trips to explore our San Juan Islands and many quiet evenings spent aboard dining and entertaining at Elliott Bay Marina.  There has truly been 'no expenses spared' in her upkeep.  Her custom furnishings and inventory of galley wares, linens and accessories are all simply first class.  She would make an ideal and luxurious live aboard for a couple or a small family.

We have receipts for upgrades, improvements, repairs and inventory aboard that are well into the six figures since 2013.  There are folders full of operational manuals, service manuals and operating instructions, plus engine room spares and some tools aboard as well.  "Novel Lady" is a USCG Documented vessel, her Novurania is state titled.
