Pilot Classic 47
Designed by Hoek Design with the first hull in build and due to be delivered in mid-2021. The PC47 is a scaled-down version of the PC 55, designed for weekending and daysailing with exceptional sailing performance. A winning combination of style, timeless elegance with a very high end build both in materials and finish.
Construction is in full composites with a Coracell M foam core, epoxy glass skins and a carbon grid system creating a light and very strong yacht. Safety features include watertight bulk heads fore and aft with alarms and a crash bow in the lower forward bow are standard.
The deck layout is designed so that 6 can dine in style in the very generous cockpit whilst the coachroof and deck areas are very flush – no clutter or lines on deck with flush cambered hatches as standard.
As with this series the designs have a large sail plan and withamodern underbody featuring a deep T keelandspaderudder performance in all conditions will be exceptional – really a sailors yacht!
Sailing systems are designed so single-handing is easy. All lines are designed to come aft under under deckallowingtheraising, reefing and lowering of sails from the safety of the cockpit. A self-tacking jib is standard but canbe changedto a standard jib if required and it’s possible to have an optional furling boom.
The interior features a double berth forward and a double berth aft to port, a spacious saloon and table, aworkinggalleywith stove and fridge and a very good size head with stand up shower. Interior finish is our standard “NewEngland Beach house style” which gives both a very light and chic interior.
Tankage for water and diesel allows for a decent cruising range.
