The best example of a boat with this description is the "Hawk" owned by Beth Leonard & Evans Starzinger. "Google" them and you'll see much of their boat's description and construction history. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

Two outta three ain't bad

She's not a pilothouse but worthy of someone's consideration...


Aluminum C/B yawl huisman of Holland by S&S 50 ft LOA:eBay Motors (item 130354290456 end time Dec-30-09 12:00:39 PST)

The owner has fallen on hard times, retired and broke, he's looking for a new owner and has dropped his price (it was unrealistic and may still be) $50k IIRC. She needs a lot of TLC, but look at those lines...seems a real shame to let her rot on the hard.

If I had 100k and another 100k to refit, I'd buy her myself. Love to see her saved, otherwise, I have no interest or connection to the boat.

Most well-found boats operating in the extreme latitudes are steel or aluminum. Glass doesn't cut it in ice. These come up for sale occasionally and all will have enclosed pilot houses. They will also have other amenities such as insulation and decent cabin heat, large fuel tanks, reliable & tough equipment.

Look for a Van DeStadt design. He makes a lot of metal boat designs, and most are very capable bluewater boats.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

my favorites

imho, steve and linda dashew have, and do, design some of the finest offshore boats and yachts built in aluminum in the world... deerfoot, sundeer, beowulf ect. nearly all incorporate some form of pilot house. most if not all carry hefty price tags but don't all nice homes? these designs do hold their value so it is somewhat of an investment I guess.

Nice boat FASTER. I like the extreme low draft feature. I've seen this on several aluminum boats up to about 40 feet. Makes a bottom job easy if you can find a nice tide flat.

Yes, she's beautifully finished, isn't she? (with a price to match... )

But I think that 50 feet and up is where the 'pilothouse' concept and nice lines are not mutually exclusive...
