January 2010 edition of NW Yachting:
"The Navigator line of fine yachts are certainly not new, especially to boaters in the Pacific Northwest who take their extended offshore cruising seriously. What is new is this strikingly good-looking Navigator 62 Motor Yacht recently launched out of this highly respected Southern California builder's yard. Located in Perris, not far from the Pacific Ocean, the Marshall family has been building these fine offshore cruising vessels for over 20 years and in that time they have delivered over 1000 boats. The simple fact that they've been in business that long and have successfully delivered this many boats are certainly excellent reasons to give the new 62 a closer look. The really amazing part of this story is the fact that even in this somewhat depressed selling climate amazingly enough the Navigator 62 continues to sell like hotcakes. In December alone Sundance sold two of these magnificent vessels and now has buyers with checks waiting for the next boat.
Like the vessels preceding the Navigator 62, the main premise from this yard is a simple one: value. While other builders will tend to overuse that word, the Marshall family backs it up by delivering a quality product assembled by skilled craftsman using very high quality materials. The other side of this remarkable equation is the design and build process that allows a vessel of this size to be easily maintained by the owners should they choose this option. The basic philosophy here is that the Navigator 62 is a vessel that has been built to be cruised extensively anywhere the owners want to go in pretty much just about any conditions. This is not a boat that needs to be pampered and kept in the yard for long periods of maintenance and upkeep. The systems are simple,well-designed, easily accessed and therefore easy to maintain.
Naturally the heart of any long range cruiser is the power plant and the Navigator 62 certainly doesn't disappoint. The standard engines are a pair of very robust and fuel efficient Volvo-Penta D12's rated at 715 HP at 2300 RPMM. You should also remember that the Navigator Yachts hull shape was designed with one thing in mind: make the best use of a minimum amount of fuel and horsepower, and retain the maximum amount of boat speed and efficiency. In doing so, Navigator created a wide hull shape that is stable at rest and at displacement speed, while achieving 30% less wetted running surface when on a plane. The result is a hull with much less drag, a significantly smoother ride, and far better field economy. As an example, at 1,000 RPM's you can cruise a leisurely 8.6 knots burning a miserly 6 gph for 1611 miles. That's Seattle to Ketchikan and back with a safe, comfortable fuel reserve margin. Plus if you're going to make that trip you'd really like to have the speed to outrun approaching storm systems or make the tidal gate at Seymour Narrows. Just push the throttle down and the 62 will surge quickly and confidently to 24.4 knots."

Since the early 1960s, Jule Marshall has been building fibreglass boats in California for use on the West Coast. Today, much like in the beginning, you'll find Jule living out his passion in his Perris, California boat yard. Jule's father built boats before him, and he and his sons, Steve and Gil, carry on that tradition.
Jule was raised in Newport Beach where he still resides with his wife, Bonnie. He oversees the entire boat building operation, along with his two sons, who have been involved in the business since they were youngsters.
The Navigator and Californian boat lines are classically designed with value in mind. Skilled craftsmanship and quality materials are the focus of this American-owned and American-built company. Since 1988, the Marshalls have built over 1000 high quality, semi-custom pilothouse yachts. Their focus for creating a unique and superior product remains unchanged.
