Pacific Seacraft 32 PH

I was looking for some general comments on the PS 32 Pilot House. I searched the boards already but did not find anything. Are there any 32 PH owners on the board that would share their comments.

Thanks
Eric

Rick,
I intend to use the boat for a combination of day sailing, and 3 day - 2 week trips. I have never owned a pilot house boat but it has always interested me so if some of my questions appear to be stupid or to vague, I apologize. I was wondering how well the boat is suited for day sailing?

In particular I have the following questions:

1. Do do you find the pilot house to be a hinderance on a shorter day sail?
2. Can you see over the pilot house or do you normaly look through it. I am 5'10" and my wife is 5'7".
3. How well does she sail in 6-8Kts of wind? Where is her sweet spot in terms of making hull speed? In winds over 20kts can she stay balanced?
4. How well does she go to weather and at what apparent wind angle?
5. What has been your experience with the quality of the build, have you had many major issues with it.
6. what will she cruise at under power both normal and maxed out?
7. When sailing from within the pilot house do you have a decent view of the sails?
8. Do you find the pilot house problematic as a result of windage either at anchor or while docking.

I am really trying to get an overall feel for how the boat is to live with on a day to day basis.

Thanks
Eric

Eric,

I'm glad you found Rick. Hopefully he'll be able to give you some good feedback.

Just as a quick aside, now that I know more about how you plan to use the boat, and knowing that you've also considered the Mason 33, CR34, and PSC 34: If you continue to have an interest in the PH 32 but perhaps are unsure about whether you need a pilothouse, I would also urge you to look at the standard version of the PH 32, the Crealock 31. If it piques your interest I'd be happy to help with any questions you may have.

Now back to the PH 32.....

1. No.
2. Either, but over the top of the coachtop is better visability.
3. Good. Over 10 knots. Yes.
4. Good. Close hauled is as good or better as any other sailboat I have owned.
5. Good build quality. Pacific Seacraft speaks for itself.
6. Do the math.
7. Of course not, but an experienced sailor has no issues with this.
8. No.

Question about PS32 Pilothouse headroom

New question about the PS 32 Pilothouse...

The manufacturer's spec says cabin headroom is 6'1". Can any PS 32 PH owners tell me whether the 6'1" headroom number applies to the upper Pilothouse area or the lower galley/head area, or both?

I am 6', 1.75" tall, so I'm looking for very specific headroom numbers on both the upper and lower areas of the boat.

I've read elsewhere that the V berth is 6'6", so I'm not concerned about that.

There are currently no PS PH 32 for sale in my area (Seattle), so I have no easy way of checking for myself.

Thanks!

I'm 6'4" and fit very well into a PS32PH.

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.

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?

Thanks!
