Not as fast as the 80 footer, but this boat will take you to all the same places at 1/5th the entrance fee.....

1990 Bill Garden Pilothouse Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

The interior doesn't make me comfortable, it's not very boaty....but it's all there.

Hmmm. Few frills, serious cruiser. Obviously built to do the job. Nice engine space. If I was stuck in a blow, I'd hope it would be in something like that. Looks like an Island Packett PY in profile. Impressive hardware. Wonder what the windows are.

One of the first things I noticed was the paper towel holder mounted to the overhead. Now there's a great idea that I never would have thought of.

Interesting boats

Larry, I was thinking it looked a bit like my PY also, but beefier.

I like the short mast for the steadying sail. Balances the looks of the boat out IMO. I wonder if a mast for a get home sail could be installed on mine without breaking the bank? Something "steppable".

You know, I was wondering about that too. With the depth of that well in the forward cockpit, why not, you're already part way to the keel. Take a look at how IP does the SP Cruiser and copy.

Wousers! That one checks a lot of boxes for me! I actually like the modern minimalist interior down below - the galley especially. The pilot house could use some - I don't know what. Overall, I love it - esp for that price range!

Thanks for sharing, Tad!!

I like everything but the 5 foot draft. That probably isn't an issue in the NW.

My guess as well. That, and he must be the kind of guy who likes to go places to discover things, as opposed to the kind of guy who goes places and revels in his assumption that everybody envies him.
