Category Description

This type of yacht is very popular in the 20-40 meter (60-130 ft) segment. Its specific feature is that the enclosed wheelhouse is located on a dedicated shortened deck between the main deck and flybridge or sundeck. On large yachts there is a small saloon behind the pilothouse, from where guests can observe the captain’s work.

There are two reasons for such configuration. Firstly, it frees up the space at the forward part of the main deck which can be used for other purposes, such as master suite, separate dining area or crew quarters. Secondly, it gives a better view for the captain.

 How are raised pilothouse yachts built? 

Raised pilothouse yachts are made from composite or aluminum. The process of building differs depending on the material used. Composite boats are made using plastic molds. A mold is lined with gelcoat and layers of fiberglass cloth, which are then impregnated with resin using a method called Vacuum Infusion Process. When the resin dries out, the hull is taken out of the mold. The superstructure, including the aft cabin, is manufactured separately and then  joined with the hull.

Unlike composite yachts, which are cast in the same molds, aluminum yachts are built on individual frames which gives more freedom for customization and individual approach to layout and deck spacing.Aluminum is cut in pieces, welded in order and painted.  

What types of engines are used on raised pilothouse yachts?

The majority of yachts in the 20-40 meter segment are semi-displacement or planing. Pod drives and shaft drives are the most common propulsion options for these types of hulls.
