Re: Aft head boats

Wow. The Dana 24 has got to be the smallest boat with an aft head! Looks like the Pacific Seacraft 31 layout (also W.I.B. Crealock).

It is actually 27" LOA. It is 24' on deck.

Nope! I came back to mention this. 23' with an aft cabin, aft head, galley, chart table AND a PHRF of 175-200. Another really unique boat. Actually, seeing a listing for this boat seeded my interest in boat ownership.

Ok the head is combined with the chart table...but it's fully enclose-able.

Oh and yes, the Dana is a ton of boat for 24', unfortunately it's priced that way. I guess having a blue-water cruiser with a decent cabin and the mooring/dockage/upkeep of a 24' boat appeals to a few people..

Here are a few:

Pacific Seacraft 31
Niagara 35
  • The Pearson 33-2 (as has already been pointed out by ereiss)
  • The Pearson 34-2
  • The Pearson 36-2
  • The Pearson 37 (aka the condo-boat)
  • The Pearson 38
All of the above are mid '80s to early '90s vintage
  • The Catalina 34
  • The Catalina 36 - see correction below

Not sure of the Catalina vintages though...

Re: Aft head boats

Scanmars. Kyrie Elite (Feeling) boats, 29+.

ETA: We may convert our Albin Ballad to aft head, when we gut and rebuild the interior. Our thinking, besides the usual advantages, goes something like: it's a small 30'er. There's really no need for a second sink, and no room for two stools. Soooo.... since this model comes with an aft-facing nav station at the companionway foot, and since a nav station requires a seat... why not make that seat the head? That would also let us put the holding tank in the portside cockpit locker. It's currently under the V-berth. Lovely smell. Share thru hulls with the galley, and one step brings you to the galleysink. We'll have to mock this up in OSB to see if it works, but the idea of slogging all the way forward to crouch in a head the size of a dishwasher carton -- it doesn't appeal. Nice if the on-watch person had everything in one place: nav, comms, pooper.

The Elite 37 head is forward ( and a rough ride offshore, I know)

The Elite 364 head is aft and has a great wet locker.

Re: Aft head boats

A slight correction.. The Catalina 36 never had an aft head, even in the mk II version

You are correct.... I thought that I looked at a C36, but was mistaken.

Here is the C 36 layout:


No aft head.
