"The PS40 retains the general form of split underbody with ventral fin between keel and large skeg. As before, the primary aim throughout is ease of control by a small crew in bad conditions. All reports indicate the 40 is a very well-balanced boat. My own belief is that one should not travel only to arrive; the passage itself should be relaxing and fun.
The deck is straightforward with most lines led aft, with a raised king plank for better footing on the foredeck and with tall bulwarks for their practical and psychological advantage. The lower shrouds are inboard for easier walking and sheeting and the watertight cockpit sole is easily removable for engine access. The 40 has a short bow platform; it allows a longer base for sail plan, permits the use of a longer waterline, and increases the work area for anchoring. It will be noticed that the Pacific Seacraft bow platform is of unusually strong construction.
The accommodation is slanted towards offshore use. The choice of island berth or V-berth in the forecabin is a matter of personal preference. The settees have fairly tight corners rather than sweeping curves for greater comfort when the boat is heeled. On passage, I like a galley which supports the cook without having to rely on straps and which, if possible, allows the cook to stand clear of any overturning pots. Separate stall shower space is well used for local cruising and the less fastidious can use the shower stall as an extra wet locker on passage which, with its overhead hatch, forms a giant Dorade vent.
The Pacific Seacraft 40 appears to be a moderate to heavy displacement boat, but one must remember that a boat with considerable overhangs will tend to have an artificially high ratio, and we also realize that the published figures for many boats are, shall we say, somewhat optimistic. 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.”
