Pacific Seacraft 25 Mark II, 1978 cutter rigged with matching dinghy
The psc25 is a small oceangoing blue water yacht. She is double ended and full keeled with ballast and is stable and safe, a wonderful boat for weekends or extended trips.
I've lived aboard for over a year.
It's a bit small but I did just fine with my German Shepherd. The shallow 3.3 foot draft is wonderful for getting into areas most others wouldnt try.
I often run right up onto the beach if its not to shallow of approach. And she is easily moved back off the hard by hand, or using an anchor and winch. She is a classic and seaworthy pocket cruiser and sails smooth through choppy water, and moves well in moderate seas.
The cutter has three working sails, the mainsail, Jib or headsail, and staysail.
Replaced original Yanmar with a Vetus M3.09 3cyl 25hp.
The Vetus has a damaged crankshaft at a conrod bearing. Easiest and least costly fix is replace the basic engine and swap marine parts. It is built around a commercial Mitsubisbi L3E, new cost $2500 if you shop smart.
A new engine for $2500!
Reduction gear is excellent.
Plumbing, electric, fuel supply excellent as well as hoses and exhaust.
There is also a broken chainplate for the port quarter backstay that needs to be welded.
Rigging has been upgraded and replaced a few years ago.
Boom was lost somehow before I got the boat so it has a nice rebuilt Schaeffer boom with two reefing lines. Mast is great also.
Bottom excellent condition but needs cleaning and paint, and above the waterline could use some TLC but useable and safe.
Bronze working portholes
Bronze deck hardware
Teak joinery throughout
She is in good condition for being 37 years old. Nice boat and she gets a lot of compliments.
