    We wanted a new way of living in seeking a pleasure craft that could provide us the ultimate retirement adventure, an alternative home and a memorable summer residence as a reward to our hard-working and successful life.

    We needed more that a summer cottage so we bought a condominium for Skiing during the snow season and we wanted to buy a kind of a Canal Barge like a Boataminium for the rest of the year. We wanted to save our pocketbook in keeping our fuel tanks filled so we would spend it visiting area to discover.

    Our Boat was to be our passport to civilized adventure in the nautical living environment. We did not want a boat to win races or cross the ocean, we just wanted to enjoy ourselves on the water as is it our belief that pleasure boating is for pleasure.

    The first production boat of the Pilgrim 40 Project started in January 1983.

    The P-40 was designed by an Artist, Ted Gozzard who expressed his natural talent and made the proof of concept (without using a computer), envisioned it three-dimensionally, drafted it, made a model, tooled and builded it to the finest carpentry detail that would be cost prohibitive today. As inflation gained over during the late 80's, Ted did mentioned that he lost $50,000.00 Cdn when he sold his last Pilgrim 40 in 1989, he said : '' It is like tearing 10,000 five dollars bills... Here is an example, on January 15 1987, in Annapolis, MD a Pilgrim 40 was sold for a delivery in May 1987, at that time one US dollar was $1.3615 CDN. The standard cost of a Pilgrim 40 was $187,575.00 USD and additionnal equipment was $33,820.00 USD for a grand total of $221,395 USD. If you use an inflation calculator on today's internet, calculate in USD the retail cost of a 1987 Pilgrim 40 @ $221,395.
