1986 Slocum 43 Pilothouse
One of only seven Slocum 43 Pilothouse models! Don't pass up the opportunity to own this special boat. Shoal draft version! Designed by Stan Huntingford to endure the weather and seas of the Pacific Northwest, this boat is as tough and strong as it is comfortable. She is the descendent of the Passport 42, and is built with the same quality of construction typical of the Taiwanese builders of the time.
She can be piloted from both inside and out, and her living accommodations are truly overstated for a boat of this size and style. "Jesse Gaines" has been cruised by her owners to the Bahamas and back many times, and she's ready to go again!

This boat's comfortable accommodations are part of what makes it so special. Upon entering the companionway on generous teak steps, you step down into a cozy space where the master cabin (standing headroom, lots of storage, and a double bed!) lies to your left and a quarterberth to your right. A hanging locker is conveniently placed there to be used as a wet locker.
The salon is expansive and open. The owner has opted not to have the salon table onboard (although it is available) in order to preserve the space and open seating area. To starboard is the inside helm station. The entire salon is surrounded with large windows, letting in plenty of light and allowing you to see the beauty that surrounds you at anchor or at sea. Engine access is below the salon, allowing 360-degree access for repairs and maintenance.
Forward of the salon, you step down into a spacious galley with a dinette big enough for 4 and a u-shaped galley with a double stainless sink and large refrigeration and freezer system and plenty of storage.
The head rivals the head of any boat ten feet longer than this one. There is a tub with room to sit or stand in the large separate shower stall, plenty of room to stand and move about in the head, as well as a stainless sink and (you guessed it) lots of storage.
Rather than a V-berth forward. there are two bunks to port and a metal-lined workbench to starboard, meeting the needs of the true cruising sailor. The workbench closes so it can be hidden away if you have guests, but when open it gives you a nice secure space for your projects.
Throughout, the teak joinery and woodwork on this boat is exceptional. All closets are lined with teak, so as not to retain moisture. The interior, because of the pilothouse configuration, remains light and cheerful--something that is lost on many similar boats.
You won't be disappointed!
