2000 Pacific Seacraft 40

location icon Norwalk, United States
Year 2000
Length 40 ft

Echappee is a beautiful example of a 2000 Pacific Seacraft 40. She has been cruised and set up perfectly for a couple to take her anywhere. One  look at how she is set up makes one realize that this is not your ordinary sailboat set up for light cruising on the bay!

Windvane, watermaker, redundant GPS, Radar, autopilot systems at the nav station, electric cabin top winch, Heart inverter/charger, ssb, and Espar diesel heat are some of the features that have been thoughtfully added to this cruiser.  Make no mistake, Echappee is ready to “go anywhere” she is also a beauty. Her blue hull and Ivory awlgrip are nearly flawless and the brightwork is equally stunning. She has been well maintained by her original owners and she will make her second owners just as happy.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Pacific Seacraft 40 maintains the form, function, and esthetic that has produced safe and attractive Pacific Seacraft sailboats since 1976. The hull shape has a moderate freeboard and graceful overhangs fore and aft. While the waterline and beam are proportionally larger than previous Pacific Seacraft - Crealock collaborations (translating into greater interior volume), the hull retains the sensible dimensions and proportions essential to upwind performance, directional stability, and the hydrostatics which effect ultimate stability. The keel is a long fin of external lead ballast bolted on and bedded in epoxy. This joint is extremely strong and resistant to impact with underwater objects. The difference between the shoal-draft and standard keels has been increased to take greater advantage of the respective characteristics of each. The combination of the keel plan, skeg-mounted rudder, deep hull sections below the waterline forward, and a carefully positioned rig plan all contribute to exceptional directional stability and handling. The interior maintains the function and form that feels comfortable and works. Passage through the cabin is straight and unimpeded. Visual space opens from the galley forward. An aft head is located for easy access from the companion way. The galley is configured to provide hands-free support on either tack. On deck, a spacious foredeck with centerline king plank for footing features an extended bow platform and windlass boss. The headsail and staysail are equipped with roller furling. The double-spreader keel-stepped mast includes two self-tailing winches for halyards. The solid boom vang is self-cleating. All sail controls, including the main halyard and two sets of reef lines, are led aft to the cockpit through deck sheave organizers and rope clutches to self-tailing winches There is a special molded-in shearwater designed for dodger attachment. The mainsheet system includes a traveler forward of the companionway and a dedicated self-tailing winch. The primary winches for the headsail can be reached from the helm. The deck quickly sheds water through bulwark hawse pipes and through deck drains that exit at the waterline. The cockpit is self-bailing and includes safety harness padeyes. Pedestal steering with single-lever control and pod-mounted instruments provide fingertip control. Extensive mooring cleats simplify docking. The Pacific Seacraft 40's deck and cockpit take into account the importance of safety when anchoring, docking, maneuvering, and sailing.

Vessel Walkthrough

Beginning forward, there is a large V-berth cabin, with a custom extension. Two opening portlights and one overhead deck hatch with screens provide good ventilation and light to the space. There are three storage drawers under the berth with cabinets on each side. There are two large, cedar-lined lockers outboard against the hull for hanging storage.

The main salon is situated midships in the boat aft of the forward cabin. On the port side is a settee that looks across at the dinette table (converts to double berth) and U-shaped settee. This arrangement drops down for a sea berth or for guests. The mast is slightly aft of the forward bulkhead, which allows access on both sides of the settee. There is good open storage above the settees for books or manuals and three cabinets. There is ample stowage space for large items below the cushions and the water tanks run centerline, above the keel, in stainless tanks. Two Hella cabin fans provide good air circulation.

The galley is aft on the starboard side and has phenomenal storage outboard above and below the counter top. The double basin stainless sink is centerline so it will drain on both tacks and has manual fresh and seawater and pressurized hot and cold and filtered drinking water. The gimballed Force10, three-burner stove is opposite with an opening portlight above for ventilation. The fridge/freezer unit is top loading at the aft end of the galley and providing a little more counter top space, very large cabinet above refrigerator.

Opposite on the port side is the dedicated forward facing navigation station. This space is essential for long passages, having all your information in one place. Outboard against the hull is open storage for navigation books and cruising guides and safe storage for plotting tools under the flip top.

The head is next aft on the port side. Having it at the base of the companionway it is useful while on watch. There is a manual forward facing toilet and single sink with pressure and manual water. There is a roomy, separate shower stall with  a hatch above, and port side porthole for excellent ventilation, as well as a teak seat and teak floor grate.  There is a self draining wet locker aft of the toilet.

The aft cabin is a cozy space for guests or a sea berth for passages. Easily accessible to the cockpit, galley and head is ideal. There is one cedar locker for hanging storage and the third (aft most) freshwater tank is located below the bed.
