The Pacific Seacraft 31 is a bluewater cruising yacht produced since 1987 by Pacific Seacraft.  Although of GRP construction, the yacht is traditionally built with a skeg-hung rudder and a Scheel keel. The yacht is a cruising design, with a high displacement designed by Bill Crealock.

These vessels are built to the highest standards of quality.  "Fat Canary" has just enjoyed a significant re-fit at the factory in Washington, NC.  She is actually better than a new boat.

If you are in the market for a blue water yacht, this boat should be considered.  Please review her details, and contact us to schedule a viewing.

General Description

The Pacific Seacraft 31 is a cruising design from the board of renowned naval architect W.I.B. Crealock. She was born of the same wisdom that conceived the immensely successful Crealock 37 and 34.

The 31's hull configuration, rig and underbody are very similar to her two forebears, yet she boasts a proportionately broader beam and longer waterline. The result is outstanding speed, comfortable motion, and superb ease of handling. The Pacific Seacraft 31 is designed and built to cross any ocean in comfort and confidence.

An impressive bluewater cruiser, she embodies all the Pacific Seacraft trademarks of high quality and fine detail: solid bronze seacocks and portholes, massive anchoring systems, impeccable joiner work, superb engine access and much more. A shoal-draft Scheel keel allows sailing in shallow waters without sacrificing deep draft performance.

The interior of the Pacific Seacraft 31 is fresh, contemporary and versatile. It provides for amazing openness, with lowered bulkheads and ten oversized opening ports, phenomenal stowage areas, and even an extra-wide bridgedeck that makes it easy to enter the cabin.
