Suddenly thinking about sailing off into the sunset? This Dudley Dix Pilot House is 38’ of go anywhere engineering with the updates required for global exploration.  SPAILPIN is a proven Antarctic expedition yacht and is ready for her next adventure.  Built in South Africa, from Corten Steel, this Dudley Dix design was built for whatever the ocean can throw at her while still  being nimble and fun to sail.  On a recent passage from St Helena in the South Atlantic to the USVI she averaged 147 miles/day.  Her fin keel and partially balanced skeg hung rudder give her upwind performance while providing incredible strength and peace of mind.  High quality hardware can be found throughout the vessel from properly sized stainless steel Andersen winches to her recent Beta Marine Diesel engine which provides reliable power with readily available parts.  SPAILPIN’s accommodations are ideally suited to cruising.  She has a center line island berth forward, a second cabin under the raised pilothouse settee and a pilot berth aft.  The pilothouse settee also converts to berth.  She will sleep 6.  SPAILPIN is truly a phenomenal boat that has the capability to take her next owner anywhere.  Where will you take her?  Highly recommended.

  • Firefly Batteries
