Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Look no further the best pilot house twin station yacht is the Carbineer 46. Built by Moody in the Uk & Lasky in Australia. This Laurent Giles design built from the early 70's up to 1990 is a beautiful sea kindly & spacious yacht. My boat the last ever built cost well over 1 million Aud in 1990 to replace her today would be almost double thst figure. My boat has 180 Yanmar 4LH-DTE engine , hydraulic in mast furling on both masts , twin station steering ,massive lazerette, the deck house layout gives excellent vision without that down below feel of most sailing yachts. I wont part with mine until I'm too old to continue criising. I've had bigger & newer boats but this one does everything so well & so easy to single hand with the toe ( yes toe) button furling .
The beautiful lines of this Giles design gets compliments where ever I go. Like most Carnineer owners I am completely besotted by my boat . Not often does a designer get it all right this is one of those rare boats that does it all well.

Thumbs up Re: Best Pilothouse Sailboat?

Good day,
Went through the entire thread. Thank you all for your contribution. I intend to purchase a pilothouse motorsailer in the near future for use as a liveaboard in Western Canada.
As such, a proper pilothouse (with a helm, not a DS) is a must IMO.
Anything "new" since 2016?

The 42.1 Albatross is note worthy
Modelo Albatross 42.1
Out of my current budget.
