The PCF 40 is one of my favourite boats and makes an ideal family motor sailer. The hull is based on a trawler design that we built in the 1970's and as with all well designed trawler hulls - this is a great sea boat.

Bruce, looking through your web site I had a pleasant surprise to find my PCF 40 photo's shown. If for any reason you would like further information or photo's please do not hesitate to contact me.

I recently, (Easter 2006) spent 5 days on board "MOJO II" heading towards Townsville, 25 to 30 knot wind and 2 to 3m seas, and she handled it with ease.

I have found the boat very sea worthy and economical after travelling from Sydney to the Whitsunday's ( about 1200 nm ) where it now resides, and is used for family holidays.  Warren Goddard

The PCF 40 is flush deck forward making for easy anchor handling and plenty of space to stow the dinghy etc.

Hi Bruce,

I recently purchased a PCF40 after recovering the boat from a reef on Guam, where it had been aground for about 6 years. We are in the process of bringing her back to sea worthy condition. The boat's name is the Pearl. She was originally built in Papua New Guinea in 1978 and has crossed the Pacific four times over her past life. She was used primarily as a small cargo transport between the Pacific Islands.

I don't have the original drawings or specs on the boat (other than what's on the website). All of the paperwork, manuals, and it looks like the original boat plans were lost when she went aground. What I'm looking for is info on the design water line and recommended ballast weight and placement. Is this information available on line or will I need to purchase the full set of boat plans

Bruce replies: WE SENT A SET OF boat plans WITH OUR COMPLIMENTS !
