Great space in an affordable Pilothouse!

For extended family cruising, or for living aboard, this West Bay SonShip Pilothouse offers all the accommodations you can ask for - with a hull extension and extended swimstep for additional outdoor space.  

Twin 210hp diesel Cummins engines offer reliability and economy for such a roomy vessel. Optimal cruise is between 8-10 knots, giving you range to explore all the waters of the Pacific Northwest.

The large pilothouse provides exceptional visibility for navigating and the port and starboard side doors make for swift and easy access to the side decks. Enjoy getting to the flybridge with ease via the stairs leading from the Pilothouse - having indoor access to the bridge is a comfort surely appreciated during all seasons in the Northwest.

Accommodations are sure to please beginning with the level entry salon which allows for expansive seating and is on the same level with the fully equipped galley. Midship to port you will find the VIP stateroom with double berth which is across the companionway from a roomy guest head (with pretty incredible stowage). The large forward master suite offers a walkaround queen berth, fantastic stowage and an en-suite head with a separate shower stall.

Reasonable sellers are moving on to a new chapter in life and are offering you an opportunity to get out on the water. We are open 7 days a week - you can call for an appointment to get get aboard!
