That's the Mntra 38 ph version built in Seattle by Mantra Marine about 35 years ago. It's a very good sailing boat but it has far less internal volume than a Baba 40 ph.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

I've looked at that boat online a few times. It's one of the few pilothouse sailboat deigns that doesn't totally look like crap and you may even be able to see from the pilothouse station. It just doesn't have the right arrangement of berths for 2 kids and to adults for us to live on for so many years though. Sigh....

Maybe I just need to win that lottery and have bob design us a boat... yeah, that'd be sweet!

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

Wonder if any Fairweather 39s (kind of Passport 40 with a raised deck/salon) were built with inside steering?

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

Med,

glad you liked the look of the boat, as I did too. One of the few PH boats at a glance that was not overly pilot house and ugly as you say. I'm not generally speaking a fan of how PH or center cockpit boats look. This was a nice looking PH. One I would not have an issue being seen in.

I just happen to see the pic, quickly then was out the door. Did not get a chance to figure out if it might work or no. Back to the Baba option or some others. At some point in time with no kids, or myself/spouse this option may be a good on.

Marty

The Fairweather Mariner is a good boat but it does not have the visibility forward to make inside steering practical.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

I had the same features I wanted in a boat and it has taken me 17 years

To find the right boat

The boat you want is one of three:


1) cal cruising 46

2) oyster 49 pilot house

3) taswell 49 all season




I got choice 1

Interesting.... I wasn't aware of some of these models. Choice one looks like you could actually see from below (a rarity). Choice one doesn't look like it has 4 dedicated berths though....

Med,

This looks like a well cared for, ready to go vessel, a little over budget; but who knows.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

Have you thought about the belluire 41. I have been on the Peter Ibold version and it was quite nice. There was a polish chap in wareham mass who made a few peter ibold pilot houses as well. Kaz something.

Looks like a nice boat, but I don't see an inside steering station.
