Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

My bad. One I was on had engine controls, AP and screen inside. No wheel so not truly a polite house. Prettiest polite house I ever saw was the Bruckmann 50 that was on the mooring 2 up from me when I was in Marion, MA. Was never on it so can't comment about the inside but looked real nice from the outside. Would think big bucks.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

Bruckmann 50 and the earlier Northeast 400 built by Cabo Rico were both designed by Mark Ellis and both very well built. Fabulous boats but not cheap which is why they are not common. The Northeast strikes me as just about a perfect coastal cruising boat for a couple.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

As opposed to a rude house sailboat??? (#@$^%** autocorrect?)

Amen. Especially up here where the weather rarely cooperates.

Not sure if it's been mentioned already, but Trintella makes good-looking pilothouse boats:

1997 Trintella 47 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

Of course, whether it fits your budget is another question.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

Med... Can't recall, but did you ever look at the Cooper/USyachts 416/42 PH sailboats? Should be a few available here in the PNW..

You know, we discounted them early on in favor of other things, but things have changed.... They might be worth looking at again. Thanks Faster.

zeilfanaat,

That boat could be in the price range if we sell our first born, which considering he is approaching 2 now, is looking like a better option by the day....

Gorgeous boat (though not my style), but still, no berths for 2 adults and 2 kids unless they sleep together in bed. Hey, WAIT! If we have to sell the firstborn to buy the boat, we no longer need all the extra berths! Genius! I'm off to make some phone calls!

So how much can you get for a first born? Mine is about to start college at $62,000+ a year, might get a double bang from that! (good thing he has scholarships!)

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

We fell in love with these back when our search was same as yours. Price just kept getting in the way. These were our favorites. The Sirus

Sirius-Werft Plön | Ambra (Sirius 36 DS) | Details





Bit pricy though and on the wrong side of the pond to boot. But perfect if you need a pilot house with more accommodations.

Med,

While in PT today, Sea Marine has two PH style boats for sail. One looks more MOTOR-sailor, the other looks like it might actually be able to sail.

Might be worth a look online if they have a site. Or a phone call.
