Pilothose Powerboat?

Don't worry, I'm not about to turn to the dark side. Along with the rest of the Pacific Northwest sailors I remain 100% committed to sailing at least 5% of the time during the 2 months of summer up here.

My parents, however, are looking for the comfort of a motor-boat.

What they're looking for is something 42-50ft, under 300K and must have a pilot house and must be easy to get on and off of. Their current power boat requires that my mom stand on the swim step to dock and/or climb up some slippery fiberglass stairs to access the narrow side decks.

Does anyone know of a pilothouse motorboat that:

1: Has walk around side decks.
2: Has a pilothouse
3: Is 42-50ft or close
4: Is 300K or less

Thanks for the help.

Mainship or Defever would fit the bill.

Re: Pilothose Powerboat?

I've seen a couple of these come into the marina here and like the looks of them. A little smaller than your folks are looking for, but I kind of like the different look from the typical "big white boat".

This one is my wife's favorite. I had to convince her to get a sailboat instead

Re: Pilothose Powerboat?

Look at Nordhavn. Like this 40 which has a "door" on the starboard side and wide walkaround decks.
