Description

The pilothouse configuration of the Vancouver 34 is ideally suited to cruising in the waters of Scotland with the elevated saloon providing excellent visibility for crew to enjoy their surroundings regardless of the weather. The layout is also beneficial for short-handed offshore passages with the on-watch crew not required to be on deck.

With her current owner since 2012 the Vancouver 34 Pilot House PHOEBE has proven to be a reliable and capable cruising yacht suited to short handed cruising.

BUILDER’S COMMENTS:
As her name suggests, the Vancouver 34 Pilot shares all the cruising attributes of the Vancouver 34 but with a pilothouse configuration. There is an interior piloting position so watches can be kept without sitting outside in the elements. From the saloon, the crew can enjoy 360-degree vision in the seated position and the yacht from vast amounts of additional accommodation space as a result. There is a spacious central galley, two separate double cabins, space to fit an optional generator, water maker, fridge and freezer plus all the navigational instruments that may be required. As with all Vancouvers the oilskin locker is adjacent to the companionway and there is a full size chart table.
All sail handling controls are led aft to the cockpit and the self-tacking staysail makes sailing her that much easier. The cockpit has three large lockers giving plenty of space for the storage of the dinghy, fenders, warps and spare sails.
