Naval Architect Jule Marshall founded Navigator Yachts in 1987; however he had been building the highly regarded “Californian” line of yachts since the late 1960’s.

A hallmark of his designs are hulls that get up on plane quickly with smaller, more economical engines. Another feature is the 360 degree visibility from the helm which allows a couple to operate the vessel without any other assistance; there are two ways to access the bow from the cockpit, either along the narrow port and starboard walkways with grab rails, or going through the salon and out through the sliding door on the starboard side of the pilothouse. 

By widening the salon out to nearly the full beam, the design makes the best use of interior space, yet still allows for a narrow walk around deck. A good compromise between practicality and comfort.

The hull is solid fiberglass, no coring material is used in the hull. Another excellent feature of the Navigator is the use of aluminum stringers and beams for floor support, which is much lighter and stronger than wooden members used by most other builders. The insulation is exceptional and affords the quietest boat ride you will ever have!

The auxiliary machinery space is forward of the engine room and separated by a bulkhead and door and this houses the air conditioning units, battery chargers, access to the washer and dryer, and other equipment, as well as a good location for tools boxes and other storage items.

With over 1000 Navigators and Californians built since 1988 these yachts were in production in Southern California until recently and are among the most respected U.S. built semi-custom yachts available today. (Californians are the single engine Long Range Cruiser models built by Navigator).

Broker’s Comments

The first Navigator I had an opportunity to operate was a 58′ 1999 model I delivered from Cape May, NJ to Ft. Lauderdale, twelve years ago, and like many other brokers and boaters on the East Coast I was unfamiliar with, and dismissive of a boat built in the Southern California Desert (of all places!)

Every day on that boat I liked it more and more and within no time I had a whole different appreciation for these exceptionally well thought out, practical, and efficient yachts.

The Navigator has the ability, because of it’s hull design, to get up on plane quickly and run at cruising speed very fuel efficiently with much smaller engines than you would typically find on the same overall length yacht.

The engine room is very well insulated so the vessel is one of the quietest you will find, and the fuel tanks are aft of the engines so there is very good access to the outboard side of the engines, which is very important for maintenance and cleanliness.

Now, years later, having sold and delivered a number of Navigators from Rhode Island to the Gulf Coast, they remain one of my favorite yachts and one which I would highly recommend. A buyer could spend a lot more money, and get a lot less boat, with many of the competitors.
