Offshore Pilothouse?

Thank you all for your input - I regularly peruse all Pilothouse and Motorsailers on yachtworld in my price range and I am aware of those that are close. My hope for this thread was that someone might suggest a boat that I did not know about that met all my criteria exactly, perhaps a boat not currently listed, then I could then keep my eyes open and wait for one. Island Trader 40, for example, has a down galley single stateroom version that fits the layout I am looking for exactly and is within 4” of the desired draft, but I am concerned about the overall build quality and offshore potential. No offence intended to current owners, perhaps I am mistaken, if any have made successful extended offshore passages I would very much like to hear from them. Alternatively I guess I could put off retirement and wait until I can move up the purchase price. Perhaps I should have phrased my question as: Does this boat exist? Then figure out how long I have to work for to achieve it :-)

I have done only one short delivery on the standard version V-40. Great boats!
There was a short production run of a pilot house model in about '80 or so. Have you looked at one?
I do not know how its interior was arranged.

Another brand would be Coopers, built in Canada. There are several of the Cooper 41 listed on Yachtworld now at about 60K, give or take.

As you know, boats are a compromise. Finding all of your desired traits (including price) is very unlikely. The non-v-berth option is particularly difficult to find for less than $100k in a pilot house sailboat. You might find a Bruce Roberts custom boat with some of your needs. In any case, here's a few more to consider:

Tayana 37 PH: A rare boat, but they do exist. The interior helm is a bit compromised, but still likely comfortable.

Saturna 33 PH: Even more rare than the T37PH.

Cape Dory 300 MS: Standard layout, but big roomy cockpit and attractive price.

Fisher 30: Very tug-ish/trawler-ish and a bit small, but nicely done if you like the look.

Pacific Seacraft 32: Very nice bluewater boat with innerspring mattress in foward berth, canoe stern, comfy/roomy interior helm, very pricey but possible for close to $100k. This would be my choice of those listed above. FYI - There's one here in the Great Lakes for sale in Traverse City.
