Advice / Thoughts on Ron Amy's Landfall 39 Pilothouse

Hello -

I am seriously considering purchasing a 1979 Landfall 39 Pilot House (Ron Amy Design, not the C&C build)) for cruising the Pacific NW, San Juan Islands, Inside Passage towards Alaska, and maybe eventually to Hawaii. Does anybody have any thoughts on the overall sea worthiness of this boat / model?

I want something safe and fun. I am an intermediate sailor but actively learning. I currently own a Catalina 27 and want an upgrade. I normally wouldn't want a pilot house but living in the NW the reality is it's often cold and wet.

Would appreciate any advice.

Thanks.

Two very different Landfall 39s... assuming you're looking at the Taiwan built heavy cruiser?

This is probably a comfy cruiser, can't help with any direct knowledge of build quality (except heavy comes to mind).

It would not be an ideal vessel for our typical PNW summers where generally light winds prevail, esp in prime areas like Desolation Sound. However with the hot rums bubbling on the stove on a cold, grey, rainy day, I'd want to raft up to you for a bit!
