Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

That one was on the market when we were looking some three years back . The one we were looking at had some problems with teak deck and softness in the PH sides. Had we been living in the PNW we may well have bought her but not at this distance.

+1 on the cabo Rico. Never been on a pilot house but the 38 is sweet.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

What I am looking for seems really rare..... Strange, there is lots of sailing to be done in areas where one might want to steer from indoors....

The Septre looks like it does have a wheel down below, but you'd have to be standing on the couch to steer from it. Now that's strange.... I was hoping for something with a seat, a wheel, and maybe even a place to put a chart. I'd like to steer from the pilothouse often, rather than once in a blue moon.

Many of the other contenders like the brewer look great, but fall down with the prospect of where to put the kids. A V-berth and a double berth would be adequate, but the brewer doesn't have a traditional V berth but rather an angled double. I doubt two boys would want to actually share a bed for several years. I also don't want to be turning a berth in the salon into a bed and back on a daily basis for years, so pilot berths and the like aren't much help either. Another option would be a v-berth and 2 quarter-berths.

I should also probably say that my wife and I haven't agreed on a budget exactly, but I know for sure it's below $150,000. More likely 1/2 of that....

Keep 'em coming. I know someone knows of the perfect boat!

I'm a fan of CC's and have always liked the Salar 40.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

I own a van de stadt norman 40ft. Mine does not have steering inside but many do . We are very happy with the sailing ability of the yacht . They are mainly steel ,with a few aluminum ones .huge fuel and water tanks , nice big engine, 3 cabins ,fantastic visibility from inside . If you google it you will find a few for sale

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

I have finally given up my search for this very type of boat as they are few and far between. If i only had another $100 k... anyhow i am familiar a with all of the pilothouse sailboats on the west coast for sale. I have even been on many of them. 38 ft is more common . 40 less common. Garbage boats are very common.
let me know how I can help.
