Every so often, a Boat comes along that hits a nerve- the right boat at the right time and price, Sometime, because of its lines, lasting appeal and singular characteristics, it becomes the right boat for a long time. That was certainly the case when the MAINSHIP 31 PILOT was given to me to sell. This make and model is destined for great popularity and a long run, because of its Looks, Economy of upkeep, Performance and the many New family-friendly features that make it stand out from the crowd. I was immediately impressed by two things that make it special. First is the large, semi-enclosed helm deck with standard hardtop and extra-large windows on both sides, the Galley and lots of seats this entire area is very much like a large all-weather combination helm station. Then below, an innovative interior features a Queen-size island berth forward and a convertible sofa on the port side that becomes two full-size upper and lower berths. So then you have a 31 foot cruising boat that comfortably sleeps a family. And another great feature is the very efficient single 315hp Diesel engine, with a flat-out top speed of 22 knots or a cruising-all-day speed of 9 knots with a fuel usage of only 13.5 litres per hour. So in short this is a great boat well priced and I give it a. (10/10. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ).
