Experienced yachtsmen around the world agree with what Mr. Crealock says about his creation:
"Outwardly, the new Pacific Seacraft 40 closely resembles its larger and smaller sisters, but in fact each model in the line incorporates modification to the shape and refinements aimed mostly at improved performance and safety.
The PS-40 retains the general form of split underbody with ventral fin between keel and large skeg. As before the primary aim throughout is ease of control by a small crew in bad conditions. My own belief is that one should not travel only to arrive: the passage itself should be relaxing and fun. We formed the underbody for this purpose, and we have had numerous reports from other boats in the line of surfing down waves in heavy weather at speed/length ratios of over 2 with easy control.
I also believe that speed on passage is quite different from speed round the buoys, and that a small crew should be able to sail an offshore cruiser to it's full potential without exhaustion."
The PS-40 is often regarded as the queen of the Pacific Seacraft fleet. "Aurelius" with her meticulous care and constant upgrading, is a standout example of this premier Crealock/ Pacific Seacraft collaboration. A few of the many notable features include:

At the forward end of the V- berth is access to the chain locker, which is divided to accept two rodes. This boat has the optional full V-berth for more comfort for two people. In addition to small shelves outboard of the berth, there is storage in several compartments in this area including a hanging locker, two storage compartments under the berth with access through louvered doors, three large drawers at the foot of the berth and four additional lockers. There are cabin fans, two reading lights, two overhead lights, two port lights and an opening hatch for light and ventilation.
The main salon has a straight settee to port and a U-shaped settee to starboard with a large table that drops to convert this area to a large berth. All of the fuel, water and holding tankage on this boat is either below the cabin sole or the berths. All of the area under and behind the settees is storage. There is also additional storage in four lockers above the settees as well as two alcoves for book storage.
Aft of the port settee is the navigation area with a very large navigation desk with storage below. There is also storage in a small hanging locker under the navigation desk, under the navigation seat, under the floor and two lockers outboard. The navigation area has two book shelves and a custom instrument cabinet for the navigational instruments.
Aft of the starboard settee is the galley. Aft of the navigation desk is the head with a separate stall shower with a glass door. The head located at the base of the companionway allows easy access. Location of the shower stall near the companionway provides the ideal place to hang foul weather gear to dry when underway. The counter top is Corian with a stainless steel sink with hot and cold water, fresh water foot pump. Aft of the galley is the guest stateroom with a double berth. There is a hanging locker, one drawer and one cabinet under the berth and a shelf outboard for additional storage. Three opening ports and Hella fans provide ventilation.

The following information was published by Pacific Seacraft and may not accurately describe certain features of this particular yacht.
The Pacific Seacraft 40 maintains the form, function, and esthetic that has produced safe and attractive Pacific Seacraft sailboats since 1976. The hull shape has a moderate freeboard and graceful overhangs fore and aft. While the waterline and beam are proportionally larger than previous Pacific Seacraft - Crealock collaborations (translating into greater interior volume), the hull retains the sensible dimensions and proportions essential to upwind performance, directional stability, and the hydrostatics which effect ultimate stability. The keel is a long fin of external lead ballast bolted on and bedded in epoxy. This joint is extremely strong and resistant to impact with underwater objects. The difference between the shoal-draft and standard keels has been increased to take greater advantage of the respective characteristics of each. The combination of the keel plan, skeg-mounted rudder, deep hull sections below the waterline forward, and a carefully positioned rig plan all contribute to exceptional directional stability and handling. The interior maintains the function and form that feels comfortable and works. Passage through the cabin is straight and unimpeded. Visual space opens from the galley forward. An aft head is located for easy access from the companion way. The galley is configured to provide hands-free support on either tack. On deck, a spacious foredeck with centerline king plank for footing features an extended bow platform and windlass boss. The headsail and staysail are equipped with roller furling. The double-spreader keel-stepped mast includes two self-tailing winches for halyards. The solid boom vang is self-cleating. All sail controls, including the main halyard and two sets of reef lines, are led aft to the cockpit through deck sheave organizers and rope clutches to self-tailing winches There is a special molded-in shearwater designed for dodger attachment. The mainsheet system includes a traveler forward of the companionway and a dedicated self-tailing winch. The primary winches for the headsail can be reached from the helm. The deck quickly sheds water through bulwark hawse pipes and through deck drains that exit at the waterline. The cockpit is self-bailing and includes safety harness padeyes. Pedestal steering with single-lever control and pod-mounted instruments provide fingertip control. Extensive mooring cleats simplify docking. The Pacific Seacraft 40's deck and cockpit take into account the importance of safety when anchoring, docking, maneuvering, and sailing.
