One sold in Anacortes for five grand a couple of years ago.
May have been the same boat, last I heard it was in rough shape - a live aboard in Sequim

Jeff,

Did you take any inspiration from the pics you took of Sea Trek III?

Cheers

If Sea Trek III is Sabbaticals Yacht then yes. But it is in no way a copy, we have just take a couple of the design concepts and incorporated them. Its more basic than my drawings, which is partly about cost and ease of construction but I am hoping for a real professional finish from my builder, who seems confident. Can't wait to get back and see how its going.
Sorry for the thread drift. Its sort of related but not really..

Yes a bit of a drift.. No you took them at Woolwich marina, while Joe was doing your rigging.

The Nauticat 42 is a nice looking boat, to my eyes. Sleeker than the 43. Does the hydraulic steering have a sensitive touch?

How about some photos?

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.

Over

Looks like a fun boat that will take care of you when it kicks up. How well does she sail?

Happy sailing!

Let's just say that I don't think it has left Brisbane yet

Yes much sleeker than the 43, I understand they sail much better though I've never sailed in a 43, the steering is nice from the cockpit put the inside helm is a little stiff; You need to use it regularly. The 42 has great all round vision, which is good for bad weather and brilliant in those great little anchorages with the raised settee not like most of the Oysters where the settee is lowered. For those who like the Motion Comfort Ratio the Nauticat 42 has a healthy figure at 41 the Nauticat 43 footer has a 43. Worth looking at is the Oyster 49PH designed by Holman & Pye really nice designed boat but expensive. I added some photos, first time I hope the happen.

Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Nauticats are interesting. Some are powerboats with sails but a few are sailboats.

Nauticats appear to be very well built as well. Given that they are Finnish, that means expensive. Very expensive.

I think the relationship comes in their apparent quality rather than in their obvious finish.

Seriously though, one can build things in Finland to any standard, same as in China, USA or elsewhere.

Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

If anyone is looking for a budget boat, I looked at a 77 Islander 37MS (motor sailor) recently. What a great layout. Still kicking myself for not buying that boat. Repoertedly, these have solid decks, no hull core or deck core, encapsulated keel etc. So big issues are eliminated from the get go.! Engine below the Pilothouse floor and lots of room around it. Be a good budget/project type boat for someone.
