Here's a proud and capable Carvel planked Classic Pilothouse built in 1943 by the Fellows and Steward Shipyard at Terminal Island, California as a SUB CHASER. Subsequent owners have restored, upgraded and modified her to be a Pilothouse Motoryacht for work and pleasure charters, including a new aluminum superstructure in the late 1970's and mechanical repower in the 1980's. Today her interior has been completely cleared, with wiring and insulation replaced, awaiting appropriate finish work inside. A great 'clean slate' for your custom nautical work and play, she's a well-loved piece of US classic maritime history! CALL for details, a copy of her 2015 survey, and an appointment to view in person...

The HELM is forward on the centerline with raised console, wheel steering and engine controls. Aft to starboard is an opening to the CAPTAIN'S QUARTERS in the rear of the pilothouse.
The LOWER HOUSE from forward has a cabin with doors aft and outboard to the SIDE DECKS and two doors aft to a SECOND CABIN. Aft to port is a doorway with landing and steps up to the pilothouse and outboard a door to the side deck. Aft to starboard is an opening to a landing, steps down to the FORWARD ACCOMMODATIONS and aft an opening to the GALLEY. Forward to port in the galley is the back of the deck accessible landing and engine room entrance. The galley opens aft to starboard of the centerline with serving counter, and outboard an opening to the DINING SALON. A large doorway aft on the centerline of dinning room opens to the MAIN SALON. The main salon has a watertight door to the back deck aft on the centerline and an opening and ladder to the aft accommodations aft to starboard.
BELOWDECKS FORWARD is the forepeak chain locker, sealed with scantling 2 x 6 and divided down the centerline for port and starboard chains. The hull interior from forward has an ENCLOSED HEAD with shower, then a large open FORWARD CABIN. Two steel tanks are in the bilge under the cabin sole. The forward cabin opens aft to starboard to another large cabin, divided athwartships in the middle with 2 x 4 studs. Five steel tanks and various plumbing are in the bilge.
The ENGINE ROOM is next reached from the port side deck. The engine room is open, well lit and spacious. Engines are in the middle with a passageway between them and room on all sides for inspection and maintenance. Fuel tanks are reported aft of the engine room.

Vessel 120V AC comes thru a Marinco 30-arnp shore power inlet aft to port on the house, a 4000-watt Magna Sine model MS54024 inverter charger or the auxiliary generators. The auxiliary generators can also produce 220V AC. The main 120V AC breaker for shore power is right next to the shore power inlet fitting. Electrical distribution panels are aft in the entrance to the engine room on the main deck level. Mounted to cabinet fronts are four 120V AC sub-panels-one with a main breaker with power available and reverse polarity lights; a second panel has four dual pole breakers for 220V service to the windlass and a 220V outlet. The third panel is marked "Inverter Panel". A Blue Sea Systems multimeter is mounted between two of the panels. The Magnum Energy inverter control panel is between the other two panels. In the locker behind the panels are-Guest 30-amp galvanic isolator and a power source selector switch.
Inboard of the AC panels is a 24V DC distribution panel with DC main breaker and vapor tight battery switch. A DC multimeter is above the panel. To port below the pilothouse console are two 6V batteries wired in series for 12V dedicated to navigation lights and electronics. Batteries are charged with a NewMar ABC12-50 battery charger. On the aft face of the console are 12V and 24V distribution panels.
BATTERIES in the engine room are boxed, covered and arranged in banks-two 24V banks with two 12V SD batteries each house/ inverter bank, two similar main engine starting banks, two 12V Group 24 starting batteries for the port auxiliary generator and one 12V Group 24 starting battery for the starboard auxiliary generator. Charging these batteries are alternators on engines, the inverter for the house banks, a Pro Mariner Pro Tech 2420i+ 24V charger for the 24V starting banks and a Pro Mariner Pro Sport 6 for the Fischer Panda auxiliary generator start battery.
AUXILIARY units include PORT diesel auxiliary generator is a Detroit Diesel model 10235101 running a Kato model 505X9E generator.

The engine is 12V start, fresh water cooled with heat exchanger and has wet exhaust.
The main deck is on one level and surrounds the lower house. The upper deck above the house extends to the sheer and over the aft deck almost to the transom. 36" high aluminum bulwarks surround the foredeck.
Forward on the foredeck is a 19" diameter steel hatch to the forepeak chain locker. 22" cast iron cleats are outboard of the hatch. Anchor hawsepipes go thru the deck aft of the hatch. The double-barreled anchor windlass is next then a plywood scuttle to the focsle with heavy watertight aluminum door on the aft face. 18" cast iron cleats are outboard of the scuttle.
Aft the foredeck surrounds the forward end of the house with bulwark high doors outboard to side decks, large open freeing ports in the bulwarks forward of the doors. Forward on the side decks are doors port and starboard into the house. Outboard on the side decks are 44" high aluminum bulwarks extending half way down the house.
Around the end of the house and aft deck are 37" high, vanished mahogany cap rails on stanchions with double lifelines below the cap rail. Two more doors are forward on the port side of the house- forward to a passageway with ladder up into the pilothouse and next double doors to a landing with electrical panels aft and ladder down to the engine room inboard.
An athwartships I-beam strongback is overhead in the landing. Outboard of the double doors is a large bolt on hatch in the bulwarks. Midway along the starboard side of the house is a door into the galley. At the back of the house is a door to the main cabin. To starboard of the door is a ladder up and a hatch thru to the upper deck. In the middle of the aft deck is a dogged hatch and below a ladder down into the lazaret. 18" cast iron cleats are mounted outboard on the aft deck between the house and transom.
