Manufacturer Provided Description
The Mainship Pilot 30 is at home on the Chesapeake as well as in the Bahamas or the San Juan Islands. The full protection of the sand shoe design allows for beaching and running in shallow water. The full keel provides excellent stability in a beam sea while allowing the boat to track like it was on rails. The classic down-east look is enhanced by the sturdy low-maintenance aluminum bow and safety rails. Whether the purpose is to fish, dive or cruise, this Pilot 30 can fit the bill.
The elongated cockpit allows for plenty of anglers, and the wide covering boards will accept a battalion of rod holders. A freshwater washdown and swim platform with a ladder will please the divers. The bridgedeck settees will double as extra bunks for the overflow of family and friends or as just a great place to nap. In the cabin, large V-berths double as a dinette and the mid-seats provide a great place to relax with a good book. The teak trimmed galley comes complete with a two-burner range, a refrigerator, a sink and even an icebox. Storage is plentiful, while light and ventilation is provided by six screened portlights and an overhead hatch. The large head boasts a Corian counter, an electric toilet and an integral shower, plus dry storage and a mirror.
The single diesel will propel the Pilot 30 at a pleasant turn of speed while providing a truly economical rate of consumption. The wood-free exterior needs only soap and water and some waxing to maintain the sheen of the premium MaxGuard gelcoat. The Pilot 30 is ergonomically designed to give the captain an excellent vantage point to observe surroundings and to pilot in safety. The tilt-out helm station offers plenty of space to accept all kinds of electronics (including an optional bow-thruster keypad). Sliding helm and companion seats make the cruising even more comfortable.
