Click on the youtube logo on bottom right of video and then open full screen.

Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Nope, it didn't work.
Are you SURE you own a Roberts Mauretius?
It may be the Aussie sun and beer combination taking its toll.

Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Maybe it's just really untidy right now, loose lines laying around, green slime at the waterline maybe. I can understand not wanting to share a picture of this vessel of renowned reputation.


Ya, I understand.......

I saw the Sirius 40DS at Southampton BS last year and it immediately became my dream cruising boat. Some superb design elements. However at about 500,000 Euros it's a factor of ten outside my budget! Until I win the lottery/invent free energy/rob a bank, I am currently negotiating the purchase of a 1980 Nicholson 40DS, which is a great design for its day, built very solidly and reputedly does everything really well!

Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

This is the best pilothouse sailboat. 1980 Nicholson 40 DS.
Why the best?
Because it's now mine! :-)

Ummm...


DS stands for deck saloon. A deck saloon is not a pilothouse.
