Pilothouse Identification

32' Pilothouse Sailboat

Is this a one-off, or does someone recognize the builder/designer?
Thanks!

Gotta be custom?
How do you get a wheel to work with a tiller?

Re: Pilothouse Identification

Looks like there is a block and line system on the port side. I have seen where a second short tiller is used with an autopilot allowing the standard tiller to be removed freeing up the cockpit. The block and line could lead to the wheel.

Re: Pilothouse Identification

Write up said the wheel was hydraulic, I wonder if there is a valve that would allow the hydraulic fluid to bypass the cylinder so that the tiller would be free when the valve was open?
I have limited experience with tillers, but like them and have never seen a tiller / wheel combo, but as I said I have little experience

Yes, you can have a bypass valve so the tiller can be used without the wheel. Celestialsailor has one on his Hallberg Rassy.
