Re: How come pilothouse sailboats are so expensive?
There aren't that many around for sale and those who have them tend to hold on to them. Generally anyone that buys a PH knows that is what they want and they're very happy with them. So there isn't a great deal of turnover, which keeps the demand, and prices, high. Both of the PH's that I've had were project boats, not that I wanted a project, but that was what was available, and both ended up being worth the time and effort.
