Japheth Are you still looking? I have a Brewer 40 Pilothouse Cutter with a full vee birth and two bunk beds in the cabin across from the settee. It is definitely an off shore cruising sail (not motor sail) boat.

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" . By the way he had sellers remorse and never sold it .

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 GreatÂ* 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.

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?

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.
