pacific seacraft
 
Does anybody know of a charter company that has Pacific Seacraft sailboats in their fleet ?

boy I'd be surprised. all charter fleets I've seen are mass production boats. If you just want to try one find their users forum and see if someone is close by. Pretty boats!

I don't know of any, however, depends on your needs, but if you just want to go for a sail and get a feel for the boat, I have one on the Great Lakes. Not for charter but always happy to help out a fellow sailor.

A Pacific Seacraft seems impractical for a charter boat. I love PSC but if I was to charter I would want more space per dollar. PSC are great world cruising boats but not your typical charter boat.

Thanks for your quick responses
I had until recently a Cape Dory 25 D. I would like to buy in the very near future a PSC. My goal was to "rent" one to try them out.
I may take you up in your offer to sail with you on your PSC
Thanks

out of curiosityÖ.what do you plan to do with it? PSC37 was as on my list and then we found our Valiant 39. All Valiants are great boats but I especially like the Texas built era. Great build quality, layouts and hardly any wood topside. And like PSCs are sailing all over the world.

I too was looking around last year. I even contacted PSC directly. Nada. There used to be a few 34/37s in charter on the great lakes, but they were retired/sold off.

Agreed, the PSC group is fairly active and sure someone will be glad to help ya out (we own one as well). Not sure your location. Also agreed that most folks interested in chartering are gunna want "more" creature comforts and space that PSC provide. In addition a person interested in a charter/purchase program would have to spend well over $700k for a new PSC 40 lets say vs $250k for a new Beneteau 40. Heck, most charter sailboats don't even raise their sails when going from point A to B. Another reason power CATs are becoming the choice for chartering. PSC's are purpose built boats for their seaworthy and sea kindly motions along with the construction and equipment to get you there safely. They are pricey even used. They do hold their value and are sill made.

Yes I think thatís definitely one of the reasons however there are nice charters of boats other than benetaus jeaneus, and Catamarans. , which I would consider chartering before a PSC. Tartans, Calipers, HR, for instance.

I like the PSC as a good small ocean worth cruiser if you want a narrow, footprint. The are average speed wise with quality workmanship. Great for sea kindliness and easily singlehanded.

It definitely has a niche of owners like you who are loyal to their brand, just like any other brand. Itís isnít really any more spendy than many other well made brands of similar length. I have never used price as a criterion for which boat is necessarily better. Besides itís what you are looking for in a boat. Charters are more about volume.

Understand I am not disparaging them , my good friend has a 37.
