Yes, td, it's a handsome boat. Here's another in California, though you may be looking for something newer.

There are at least 4 or them, one a 43 - the last built - in our little club. All the owners are pleased, and all are fastidious boat keepers. The windows are not as large as some of the other PH types like the Cooper series, and clearly many of these boats have traveled extensively offshore.

They do hold their value - esp the latest 43s but they have some nice features and are a showcase for BC boatbuilding.
