Why should I cross this one off my list?

In my search for a new-to-us pilothouse, this boat popped up on my radar:



2000 Cape Cod Catboat Pilothouse Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

At first i ignored it, as it is outside of what I thought were my parameters, but i have come back to it a couple of times. So i turn it over to you, my esteemed(?)(!) colleagues- give me enough reasons to take it off my shortlist.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Seems a bit on the small side, which combined with the windage of the superstructure, could be problematic.

What though, is your intended use/venue?

Yeah, the beam and the displacement made me raise my eyebrows. Being a catboat, i could almost buy the beam, but i gotta figure the displacement has to be a typo.


PB, intended use is outlined here:

Not for me. You'd be stuck 'inside' sailing.... controls.... ? Looks like a very shallow or bilge keel so even thought mine is no rocket to weather that one...... The look from the outside is certainly different...... to be kind.... but it's pretty on the inside. 30 hp is no motor sailor.... just regular sailboat propulsion..... I have 75 for 18,000 lbs.

FInd out where in Seattle it is at, I can take a look at it.

There is part of me wondering if it will truly fit you needs and wants frankly.

I still think it will be too cramped down below while the cockpit is less than voluminous also.

While not exactly Yacht Porn, the Fales has a certain purposefulness about its design which appealed to me in a strange way.

This thing for me has zero appeal other than what looks like a good quality fitout.

The hull construction explains the weight. Two inches thick, douglas fir, ply, and glass. Though I am skeptical that she has #10000 of ballast. My boat is heavily constructed (not that heavy), has the same beam, is 14' longer, and weighs not quite twice as much.
She surely is a sailing houseboat.
