We are pleased to present "Alumination", a purpose built 40' Aluminum Westcoast pilothouse cruiser. Designed by Ed Rutherford of Waterline Yachts fame and built by a highly skilled professional crew, the attention to detail is evident throughout. The owner, an experienced off-shore sailor, requested a rugged no-nonsense, low maintenance, economical pilothouse cruiser. "Alumination" is beautifully finished and features quality well thought-out systems designed for ease of maintenance. Exceptional value at $299,000 USD. Viewing by appointment please.
Surveyor's Comments: This vessel has been very well planned and all work has been completed with pride and precision. The interior hull, cabin sides and deck heads are lined with off-white Arborite paneling trimmed with maple. Cabinetry and trim feature large radius corners. Windows and doors have large radius corners and windows are double pane thermopane glass wherever possible. The overall appearance is smooth, bright, spacious and comfortable. This is a very well conceived and executed vessel well suited to international coastal cruising.
