Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Have you had a look at the Nauticat 42, designed in house by Nauticat, still a heavy boat like the S&S designed 43 but have a better underwater profile and is a sloop. I just bought, sails well when the weather turns but is a bit slow in light air.

Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Ahoy From Frosty Atlantic Canada,

We made a decision to move our 2013 sailing season from New Brunswick's Saint John River to Campobello Island in the Bay of Fundy. Big Leap by any measure. We are counting on the October purchase of an LM 28 Pilothouse Sloop to help us do it in safety, comfort and style. My Partner comes from a boat building family on one side and fishermen on the other. So "in style" was measured by someone with a traditional nautical eye.

Here is the actual broker listing...View Boat Photos - YachtWorld.com

We picked the LM based on her traditional seaworthy lines, big engine under a cockpit, tiller and PH steering stations, large sliding skylight, great vision from the tiller as you can see over and through the PH, and 28 seemed like the perfect size from a couple when the guy might want to keep napping during a docking.

As we prepare ourselves for a first season of serious sailing, we would love to hear how you see this choice stacking up as a Pilothouse.

Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Lovely boat. If it sails as pretty as it looks, it is dangerous. A bit pricey, but then, the best always is.

Fun discussion to read through! I'm currently working on finishing up a Glen L designed Steelaway 35 pilot house cutter. I absolutely love seeing the other finished designs as I prepare to start my finish work on the boat.

I don't have any experience sailing a pilot house sailboat yet. But, I look forward to the benefits of being able to operate watch during less than ideal weather from the comforts of a warm cabin!

I look forward to sharing my boat pictures as I get close to launching this summer...

They have been around for a while now and I have heard they sail really well, not that I will be able to afford one.

1933 William Hand Motor Sailor Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com
A work of art!

The owners motto is probably; "I spent most of my fortune on pretty boats and fast women. The rest I just wasted"

Or was that fast boats and pretty women?

My dad owned a similar design, an Alden Motorsailer, 48', 1938. We brought it up from San Pedro to San Francisco in 1967, he sold it in the mid 70's. loved that boat too.

Rigs too short for me. Looks like a gaffer that was converted to Marconi but kept the original sticks so she wouldn't need all new chain plates and rigging. I hate when they do that, not enough sail area left. Should have left it gaff. I really like Hand schooners though. Lots of nice ones built at Stone Boatyard back in the day. One sold in Anacortes for five grand a couple of years ago.
