Pilot is a very well cared for example of the lobster boat style hull that was built as a recreational vessel. These Spencer Lincoln hulls have the ability to handle heavy weather in style and Pilot has the power to cruise anywhere you’d like in the Pacific Northwest. She has real wood trim and a very sturdy build out to give you confidence in almost any conditions. Her trim and floors are teak and her hull shines from a beautiful paint job.
If you are looking for a boat that turns heads when you enter a harbor and can cruise comfortably in the 15-16 knots, come take a look at Pilot, she is worth the trip to Bainbridge Island.

Boarding Pilot is done from the side deck, over the varnished cockpit coaming with steps into the huge cockpit. Or from a dinghy boarding can be done from the swimstep. There is beautiful wood everywhere, typical of her Maine pedigree.
There is a large bench seat across the aft end of the cockpit and the helm and command bridge are open to the cockpit. There is a sunbrella divider that can be removed so that the boat is open from bow to stern. There are fold up chairs so that the cockpit can be open for fishing or crabbing, or set out for a cocktail cruise. The cockpit feels safe in almost any sea state with a high coaming and Teak floor (renewed). The large bench seat in the cockpit is massively built and very secure.
The command bridge has a large helm seat and an L shaped settee with table to port facing forward. The center aisle is open with access to the engine and mechanical space below. There is space aft of the helm seat to store the chest freezer and the foldable deck chairs.
Forward and down a couple of steps is the galley to port with the sink, stove and fridge. To port is the head with shower.
Forward of this space is the V berth with overhead hatch for ventilation.
