2006 Pilothouse Motorsailer

Our 45-foot aluminum pilothouse motorsailer is for sale.



Here's some general information. For lots of details and photos, please see our website (see below for the web address).



The boat is a super-strong vessel for cruising to remote locations, built to sail easily through heavy weather and to be very comfortable upon arrival at any destination, whether it be an isolated anchorage or marina berth. Key attributes of include (1) an extremely rugged “no-maintenance” aluminum hull, (2) a fabulous pilothouse with 360-degree views, (3) robust twin keels that enable routine beaching fully upright (“drying out”) for total independence in remote locations, (4) voluminous tankage for long-range operation and prolonged periods far “off the grid,” and (5) comforts of home, such as a convenient galley, shower room with ample hot water, automatic fresh-water toilet and cozy cabins, making for a delightful home away from home or long-term liveaboard. This is a powerful vessel for sailors who know what is required to achieve maximum utility and safety while also being comfortable in real-world conditions. Now comfortably berthed near Honolulu in Hawaii’s safest marina, the boat is ready to continue cruising, whether toward Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, or southwestward to the tropics and beyond, or she can be a wonderful liveaboard home in Hawaii.

Construction: professionally built of 5083/5086 marine aluminum in British Columbia, Canada
Length on deck: 45’ Beam: 13.5’ Draft: 6’

That is one amazing boat!

Particularly like the welded deck hardware (only one hole in the deck for wiring), pretty much zero maintenance aluminum above the waterline, twin keels plus protected prop/rudder for three point contact while beaching, keel cooling, the pilothouse, and hydraulic drum windlass.

A boat that fosters dreams of adventure

Whatís the size of that Parasailer spinnaker? How well did it work? I would like to experiment with a spinnaker on my boat, but know nothing about them. My mast is 40í above deck so similar to yours.

The parasailor spinnaker is 78 sq. meters. It worked very well because the wing keeps it up. But these sail are very expensive as spinnakers go (Euro 4,000). Use a dealer if you want to avoid a mistake we made: we had to pay hugely for shipping and customs fees (closer to $1000 than $500 as I recall; nearly had a heart attack).

My recollection is that we paid about US$6,000 in total, including shipping and import taxes. But it does pull the boat along nicely.

Here's a picture of it. More pictures can be seen on our website
