Yes, IF it's still for sale, there was one in La Conner, WA. It was listed with an Oak Harbor Wa. broker. Sorry can't remember the winds, maybe. The boat was in Shelter Bay Marina. Hope that helps you.

I received your PM, but I haven't made enough posts to respond to you through Sailnet. Please PM me your email or number. I'd be happy to chat and to show you some specifics of the boat (we're at Shilshole in Seattle).

Re: PSPH 32 refrigeration

Follow-up on this on refrigeration post I made a while back...

We mounted our compressor on the forward bulkhead inside the compartment outboard of the forward setee seat. We put a 3" vent aft in that same compartment. On warm days, we generally leave one of the slatted compartment doors open, though it doesn't really get hot in there. We're in the Pacific NW, so I dream of heat being a problem.

Re: Pacific Seacraft 32 PH

I received a private message asking about whether we bought a PSPH 32, however I haven't made enough posts to allow me to send a PM, so I'm posting my reply here:

We did buy one. We're located in the Seattle area. We're closing in on our first year of ownership.

Not for a minute have I felt we bought the wrong boat. It is hard to imagine a design which makes a better use of space for a couple, or a couple with one or two kids.

Comparisons would be against an armada of broken-down Catalina charter boats, so there is no easy way to make a comparison.

Most of the negatives I can think of could be considered positives by others, depending on your needs/wants, but here is my list:

- I would prefer a slightly larger icebox. The current one is fine for my wife and I, but with two teenage boys along, another cubic foot or two would be nice.

- We are Pacific Northwest sailors. 70 gallons of fuel is way too much capacity. One fill-up represents an entire year of cruising. Dealing with stale diesel and keeping tanks topped up is more of a concern than running out.

- We're fanatical about not pumping overboard. I would prefer a 30 gallon holding tank rather than the existing 17-20ish gallon one.

- We have the 38hp Yanmar, which in my opinion, is about 8-10hp more than needed. Engine access is fabulous, but I wish we had about 4" more access between the engine and the bulkhead on the port side. Changing the raw water impeller is doable, but no easy task.

Everytime I say to myself, "that seems a bit wierd," I soon have an ah-ha moment and say, "wow, what a great design."

We happen to meet a sistership in the San Juan Islands this past summer. That couple had recently downsized from a Perry 47' to the PS32PH. They raved about how managable, but spacious the boat is. I would agree.

We chartered a Catalina 36 for the two previous years. Our PS32PH is more manuverable and (feels) more spacious. There is no boat, larger or smaller I would trade for.

Obviously we are happy with our selection. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

32PH Pacific Seacraft

I just read your post. We have a beautiful 1994 model up near Skagit Bay. We'll be out of town until April, but you're welcome to come and see her when we get back.
Happy holidays,

On my PSC PH32 #15, PO (or PSC) fitted an Adler/Barbour SuperColdMachine under the aft port settee, outboard, with Groco seacock and raw water strainer below.

PSPH 32 refrigeration

The PS PH 32 I just purchased does not have refrigeration. I'm looking for information regarding the refrigeration systems other owners have in place.

The space just outboard of the drawer frame, under the forward setee seat, appears to be about 8" wide, which is about 1.5" too narrow to house an Adler Barbour CU100 Condenser.

The narrower condenser units I see are lower power and only seem capable of powering a smaller (insufficient from my perspective) cooling plate.

From pictures, it looks like some owners have condensers under the aft setee seat. Is that my only option? Yes, I plan to consult a refrigeration expert in the near future, but I would very much like to hear of others experience in this matter.

aljohnso I am seriously considering purchasing a PS PH 32. There are currently five listed for sale on Yachtworld, however there are none currently for sale in the Pacific NW. Before I get on a plane to go look at one, I'm wondering whether there is one in the Pacific NW which my wife and I might be able to poke our heads inside.

Are there any Sailnet followers out there with a PS PH 32 in the Pacific NW who might allow my wife and I to take a quick look inside?

Specific PSPH32 headroom numbers

I received confirmation that the actual headroom numbers are 72 7/8" in the pilot house and 71 7/8" below, on a 1993 PSPH32.
