40' Chas Wittholz PH, 2014 engine, updates
Strong, solid Charles Wittholz designed classic pilothouse trawler. 2014 install of factory rebuilt Ford Lehman diesel provides for confident travel. This is an efficient boat to operate- cruising at 8.5 mph on a mere 1.5 gallons per hour. Boat is currently enjoying a cruise along the eastern US coast.
Refurbished from 2007-2013. Boatyard applied fiberglass and West System epoxy sheathing over sound cedar on oak construction assures strength and dry bilges. Surveyor calls this hull "Bulletproof". Recent Awlgrip on the topsides, and smooth finishes throughout the yacht makes for an attractive vessel. Comfortable forward stateroom with queen berth.
Cool, distinctive pilothouse boat that gets favorably noticed in any harbor. Significant updates benefit this original 1971 hull, while nicely retaining the charm of that earlier design. Convenient, straight forward systems simplify cruising. Manageable yacht.
