One of the most sea kindly boats to set sail, this Crealock
(Creala) 40 pilothouse is a real sailors pilothouse. At 42’ overall with a 12’6” beam, Trust motors at 7 knots in calm seas despite her 50hp Yanmar
and 15tons of overall weight.
So many upgrades and refit
items including much of the running rigging
, standing rigging
and bright work
, etc etc etc. I can run you through the maybe 2000 hours of work
that went into her in the last 3 years.
A perfect inside passage boat
, an even better tradewinds sailor. Dialed for double handed sailing, or expandable to 5 in a pinch with two full berths. This is a cheaper version of a Seacraft that is better in nearly every way. Ask my why!

At first glance, the Creala Pilothouse 40 might appear to be simply a reproduction Pacific Seacraft
40, but in reality it is so much more.
Despite having a limited number of hulls produced by this manufacturer, Creala immediately set their reputation as a “no holds barred” yacht manufacturer; and as you walk through, this boat
its qualities emerge from every angle. Penned by the imitable WIB Crealock, this yacht possesses the spirit of a true blue water
From the moment you step aboard, the shiply qualities emerge and take hold of you. High bulwarks, stunning restored teak
decks, and myriad thoughtful on-deck details bring you to two solid teak companionway
doors. Below deck
, a somehow open feeling yet intimate pilothouse space gives way to two private berths and ample head
, increasing the feeling that you are aboard no mere sailboat.
Underway, she is seakindly and stout, with no creaking or slapping, emphasizing the poised spirit of this incredible vessel. Under power
she motors deftly and under sail, she is stiff and fast, with minimal heeling as she reaches hull speed
Creala Yachts may not have the pedigree of other Crealock designs, but Trust is perhaps one of the finest examples of a blue water
cruiser ever to have sailed.
