This fine Classic Cruiser was built by Walter Pozanson in Los Angeles of wood in 1936. The vessel is a twin screw, diesel powered MY.
The hull construction is built with wooden molds of a traditional yacht building construction. There are steam-bent ribs with a full keel, keelson and floors with intermittent stringers, transverse plywood bulkheads with a shear clamp and a framed deck and deck house, planked over that gives the vessel its rigidity and stiffness.
Th present owner has owned this vessel for 58 years and has used and maintained it well. Looking at it, it almost appears as though it were an old style sailing vessel. This is a nice example of a 30's era motor yacht.
September 2015 hauled out in shipyard for bottom painting and new props.

This vessel has a fly bridge/upper helm that would seem to be used more for in-close maneuvering. Aft cockpit is covered with a canvas top with a full beam width bench seat across the aft of the cockpit. A generator is located beneath with access through panels in the back of the settee. Side decks on port/starboard sides of the cabin which are teak planked fastened down to beams. An entrance to the interior forward end of cockpit. 2 wing doors into the pilothouse from the side decks and up a set of stairs leads out to the foredeck. Windlass, cabin hatch and anchor on foredeck. Safety is provided with stanchions and a cable. Mounted on the cabin house top is a signaling mast with the anchor light/bow light attached. There are traditional side board running lights mounted on the cabin top as well.
Cabin has 2 twin berths. Starboard side is an enclosed marine toilet. Port side is a dressing room that houses electrical panels and storage. The pilothouse has windows providing a 360 deg view from inside. Is finished with beautifully varnished teak wood paneling and window frames as well as the beams and planking for the cabin top.The helm is located on the forward port side . On the aft port and starboard sides are double seats where the engine batteries are located beneath. Beneath this pilothouse sole is the location of the engines. When looking at the engine space its hard to imagine seeing well preserved antique engines that power this vessel, that this is the second set of engines. The controls are all pneumatic both shifting and the throttles. Each engine has a compresor mounted on it.
The galley has a stove and sink area, storage and refrigeration. Forward is a convertible dinette. The dining table folds out of the forward locker door and the lower berths provide the seating. This area becomes 2 sets of bunk beds. Throughout the vessel there are various hanging lockers, cupboards, drawers and storage areas.
