The Pacific Seacraft 40, often regarded as the queen of the Pacific Seacraft fleet, is the latest design collaboration in their line of thoroughbred blue water cruising yachts by renowned marine architect, Bill Crealock.
This one-owner Pacific Seacraft 40 has never been lived aboard or extensively cruised. This gorgeous vessel has been lightly used, primarily for weekend recreation and has only 822 engine hours!
The Pacific Seacraft 40 is sure to turn heads in any anchorage or marina. Not only is it one of the most widely respected and well-known offshore cruising vessels, but it is also one of the most aesthetically pleasing and graceful yachts on the water. It is no small achievement that Pacific Seacraft has been chosen by Fortune Magazine as one of the best American made products, two years in a row.
Here's what Mr. Crealock says about his design:
"Outwardly, the new Pacific Seacraft 40 closely resembles its larger and smaller sisters, but in fact each model in the line incorporates modification to the shape and refinements aimed mostly at improved performance and safety.
The PS-40 retains the general form of split underbody with a ventral fin between the keel and large skeg. As before the primary aim throughout is the ease of control by a small crew in bad conditions. My own belief is that one should not travel only to arrive: the passage itself should be relaxing and fun. We formed the underbody for this purpose, and we have had numerous reports from other boats in the line of surfing down waves in heavy weather at speed/length ratios of over 2 with easy control.
I also believe that speed on passage is quite different from speed round the buoys and that a small crew should be able to sail an offshore cruiser to its full potential without exhaustion."
Ask anyone who has sailed Pacific Seacrafts offshore and they will confirm Bill Crealock's assertion; you truly do arrive more rested. The motion comfort is remarkable.
Here is what some of the leading yachting magazines have said about the Pacific Seacraft 40:
In many ways, the Pacific Seacraft 40 defines a blue water Passagemaker. There's no question that cruisers who want to experience their dream firsthand will be right at home in this boat. -Sail Magazine
The moment one steps aboard, it is clear that every part of the boat has been thought out carefully by someone experienced in the conditions likely to be encountered offshore. A yacht like this could be taken off the production line and confidently sailed straight off into the sunset without another thought. -Yachting Monthly
Her engine hours are an indication of a vessel sailed rather than motored. Your personal inspection will find that she has been maintained to a very high standard throughout and may be the best pre-owned example on the market at this time. She's a true pearl among other Pacific Seacrafts and certain to meet or exceed expectations.
These gorgeous boats also enjoy an enviable reputation for sea-kindly behavior and respectable speed. She'll surprise you with a superb sail plan that is not underpowered.
