The Pacific Seacraft 31 introduced in 1987 shares its heritage with the celebrated Crealock 37 which earned a spot on the American Sailboat Hall of Fame for its seaworthiness and build quality. The diminutive 31 foot design encapsulates the same concepts of comfort and safety but packs it into a much smaller package. The Pacific Seacraft 31 differs from the larger boats in the range in that it makes a departure from the traditional double ender styling in favor of a near vertical transom which opens up more space in the aft sections. On deck is a relatively large cabin truck with lots of portlights. The cabin top is flat featuring a large forward two-way hatch as well as twin dorade vents. Further back in the cockpit are seats that are 7 feet long with contoured backs; three lockers are below the seats, there’s also a vented gas locked on the starboard coming. The helmsman also has a contoured seat. Down below the boat has a very open feel which is usually the domain of much larger vessels. The V-berth is 6′ 6″ in length with plenty of storage alongside the hull, as well as above and below the berths. A curtain separates the V-berth from the main saloon. In the saloon are twin settees either side of the table which seats six comfortably and attaches to the compression post. The table can be stowed away completely beneath the V-berth. Further back on port is the galley with its two burner stove and twin sinks. Opposite on starboard is a standup nav-station. There’s also a seagoing double berth on the port quarter which can be access by climbing through behind the galley.
The engine is located in the usual location below the companionway stairs which forms an engine cover, there is very good access from all sides to the engine and the stuffing box is very easy to reach. The hull is laid up by hand in solid fiberglass and water resisting vinylester resin is used on the outermost layer and isophthalic polyester resin in the layers below. This combo should provide excellent resistance to osmosis. Some articles document the hull being hand-laid with vinylester resin throughout with kevlar fiber reinforcing which provides excellent toughness; this may be true for later boats.
Lead is used for ballast. The fiberglass rudder has internal reinforcing from a steel plate and mounted to the fiberglass skeg which itself is reinforced with steel. The pivot is bronze.
The deck is made of marine plywood sandwiched between GRP on both sides with a non-skid pattern molded on the top. The hull-to-deck join is glued and is solidly through-bolted with 1/4 inch stainless bolts every four inches.
