A rarer inboard version of the popular Orkney Pilothouse 20 PUFFIN is the ideal boat for exploring or fishing in coastal waters. Boasting a Raymarine plotter and fish-finder, DSC VHF radio and twin axle SBS trailers she comes with a full inventory ready to launch and use.
A development of the Orkney Day Angler 19+ the Pilot House 20 built on the positive aspects of the previous design and refined the interior layout to provide practical overnight or weekend accommodation for two.
Lying ashore and ready to launch North Argyll, viewing by appointment.
Originally developed from the highly regarded Day Angler 19+ the Pilot House 20 is now in its fourth generation and continues to be a popular size model in the range with both Cruisers and Fishermen alike, with both an angling package and weekend cruising specification available.
With a generous beam along the waterline spray chines it offers good stability without a significant increase in wetted surface. The hull features a reasonably deep forefoot with fine forward sections and pronounced flare developing into a moderate V aft. The resulting shape, combined with a moderate beam/length ratio, results in a dry, comfortable ride in rough seas.
The fully moulded cockpit has safe high coamings and is self draining with useful stowage under hinged lids. Wide side decks with practical 'angled-in' toe rails and pilot style coach roof handrails make going forward to the foredeck simple and secure.
The wheelhouse offers commanding all round views from a forward facing Helm and Co Pilot seat.
Constructed from single piece GRP hull with separate coachroof & deck mouldings, hand consolidated. The boats have been designed to require minimal maintenance during the season.
For a boat of just 20' the Orkney manages to squeeze a lot into the forward wheelhouse and makes for a practical weekender for a couple.
