Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

Ha this is a crack up , this Fisher 29 is my buddy Karl , at the helm of Manatee . Fisher's are cool , I think they made a 37', it helps if you have real sails made up . Quote Karl " they come with bed sheets" . https://www.google.com/search?q=fish...2F%3B533%3B400 By the way he had sellers remorse and never sold it .

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

I just saw that Tim Lackey is selling the Fisher 30 pilothouse ketch he's been restoring for himself for the past four years. He has painstakingly documented the condition and renovation of this beautiful boat on his website since he bought her. Anyone with an interest in the restoration or even just maintenance of an older sailboat will be totally fascinated by Tim's website.

The link for the motorsailer is here:

The Motorsailer Project | Project Logs

Tim's general website for his classic plastic restoration business is here:

Lackey Sailing LLC | Restoring and Rebuilding Great¬* Boats

I have no connection to Tim at all; I've never met or communicated with him. I ran across his website by accident years ago, and I've followed his progress on the restoration of many boats. Enjoy.

Great timing. I DID just deliver home to my slip yesterday my 1985 Nauticat 40. For a very long tale of how the shipping and receiving of the boat went rather poorly, see the "I hate boats" thread.

I continue to be amazed at the lack of pilothouse sailboats with good visibility from below. Around here there are a large quantity of boats with HUGE canvas enclosures, which would suggest to me that there is a demand for good pilothouse designs.

I still like the Nauticat 38, but probably not if you're going off shore or really care about sailing performance. There's also a nice Nauticat 43 up here for sale at a good price. I seriously considered buying it, so PM me if it interests you.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

Ok, how about this for a different idea. 41 CT Pilot House Real nice one up Seward right now. You will feel right at home. Wood masts and booms, heck wood everywhere!

But seriously it does kinda solve one issue. Nice V berth for you and the Mrs and a cabin with bunks for the boys. My wife and I would sure like to find more layouts like this for us and the girls.

At the least it would feel familiar right?

Dear Medsailor,

I am trying to sell my westsail 42 Twilight, please check her out she might meet your needs. Westsailparts.com.

Med,

While in PT today, Sea Marine has two PH style boats for sail. One looks more MOTOR-sailor, the other looks like it might actually be able to sail.

Might be worth a look online if they have a site. Or a phone call.

Re: Help me find a 40-ish foot pilothouse

We fell in love with these back when our search was same as yours. Price just kept getting in the way. These were our favorites. The Sirus

Sirius-Werft PlŲn | Ambra (Sirius 36 DS) | Details





Bit pricy though and on the wrong side of the pond to boot. But perfect if you need a pilot house with more accommodations.

zeilfanaat,

That boat could be in the price range if we sell our first born, which considering he is approaching 2 now, is looking like a better option by the day....

Gorgeous boat (though not my style), but still, no berths for 2 adults and 2 kids unless they sleep together in bed. Hey, WAIT! If we have to sell the firstborn to buy the boat, we no longer need all the extra berths! Genius! I'm off to make some phone calls!

MedSailor
So how much can you get for a first born? Mine is about to start college at $62,000+ a year, might get a double bang from that! (good thing he has scholarships!)
