"Mark this yacht as extraordinary" -Chris Caswell, Yachting Magazine

It is an exceptional occasion when Yachting Magazine suspends its customary reserve to cheer for a 31' bluewater cruising boat. But when that boat springs from the same stable that produces the legendary Flicka 20, Dana 24, Orion 27, Crealock 34 and Crealock 37, the enthusiasm is somewhat more understandable; listen to what Yachting has to say:

"How can you help but like a boat that is so well conceived?"
"Some boats are built to look like cruising boats, while others are built to cruise," writes Yachting's Chris Caswell. "Here's one from the latter category, with the kinds of systems, construction and detailing to prove it. In fact, throughout this 31-footer it's easy to recognize that she's built for the reality of cruising rather than the illusion. "Too few modern cruising yachts are designed and built by people who actually go cruising, but the Pacific Seacraft 31 is a delightful exception to the rule, with this background and knowledge showing everywhere you look.

"Take the anchor gear, for example". 

A typical yacht may have a single anchor roller on the bow-one too few for even local cruising. The 31 has three separate anchor systems. The short bow platform includes two rugged anchor rollers set far enough away from the hull to keep a swinging anchor from carving the gel coat. A pair of 12-inch bronze Herreshoff cleats are big enough to handle any towing or mooring line, and the anchor locker is divided into two sections so you can keep two anchors ready to go at all times. Back on the port comer of the transom is another husky anchor roller, another oversized cleat, and an underdeck chain locker for stowing the rode. How can you help but like a boat that is so well conceived?

"Amazing openness" 

"The 31's layout," continues Yachting, "is self-evident from the plans, but what you can't see is the amazing oppnness that designer Joe Artese (who did the interiors on such benchmark yachts as Whitefin and Victoria) has created by lowering bulkheads and removing visual blocks.

"What impressed me most about the 31 is the fact that it has been so thoroughly thought-out. On most boats, you can see where there might be room for another shelf or a dead area that could be made into a locker. On the Pacific Seacraft, it's already been done."

"Everywhere you look, there are stowage areas tucked into the nooks and crannies: big drawers in the head and by the forward bunk, deep bins with locking lids in the galley-even shelves with removable fiddles for bulky items.

"With ash ceilings, a teak and holly sole, and low bulkheads, the cabin is already bright and airy, particularly when the 10 oversized bronze ports are open. A sturdy fiberglass sea hood protects the main hatch, and an extra-wide bridgedeck makes it easy to enter the cabin.

"Mark this yacht as extraordinary"
"The galley is delivered with either a propane or CNG two-burner stove with oven, but it's easy to overlook the cleverly designed deck locker that will hold two tanks of either propane or CNG. You won't see other things on the plans, but they mark this yacht as extraordinary. Instead of the usual single water tank, the 31 comes with twin tanks and a complete manifold system for using one or the other. The stem pulpit is divided, so you can moor Med-style and go ashore without jumping over the pulpit.

"I've already mentioned that deck hardware is the sturdiest I've seen on a boat this size, but some of it (such as the burly midship cleat) is cast just for the builders at Pacific Seacraft because they couldn't find what they wanted anywhere else.

The engine is a 27-hp. three-cylinder Yanmar diesel and, for once, a builder's claim of "complete access" is truthful. The entire engine box hinges up so you can easily reach all sides of the engine, and even the stuffing box can be adjusted without disassembling the boat. Other refinements include Morse controls, extra-thick lead sound insulation and Racor fuel filters.

"Beckon you over the horizon"
"Joinerwork is superb throughout, which is certainly a result of Pacific Seacraft's many long-term employees. A few thing will probably be overlooked by many buyers, such as the keyed caprail with joints held together by a beautifully crafted 'key', in the style of old-time boat-builders.

"If you've been around boats long enough to know what 'sweet' means when applied to a lovely offshore cruising sloop with a sweeping sheer and lines that beckon you over the horizon, then you'll fall in love with the Pacific Seacraft 31."

Isn't it time you felt the assurance of Pacific Seacraft quality?
