Pilot Saloon 42

Since the introduction of the first Pilot Saloon sailing yacht in 1991 the Wauquiez shipyard has built over 300 yachts of this type. The Pilot Saloon is a blue ocean cruiser with a very unique approach towards world-wide cruising offering day-light, space, comfort, safety and the pleasure of sailing.

With a high-performance hull shape, the straight bow stretches the waterline to the absolute maximum length resulting in better performances and higher speeds. The powerful bow and soft hull chines provide a high shape stability, very important for offering a sailing yacht behaving well in all conditions.

The Pilot Saloon 42 has a powerful stern suited for a double rudder configuration making the boat easy to helm downwind and at the same time reducing the wetted surface which improves the sailing performances in light winds. Fitted with double rudders offering optimal control at all points and conditions of sail; We offer a deep draft keel of 2,15m lowing the centre of gravity and offering ultimate sailing performance and a 1,75m short draft keel for those who like to navigate and anchor in small and shallow creeks.

Let us introduce the latest model of the Pilot Saloon range: The new Pilot Saloon 42.
