TRUE LOVE offers a tasteful blend of function, luxury and cruising performance. She is a well-designed steel sailboat that offers the ultimate margin of safety for offshore world cruising. Professionally designed and built by Waterline Yachts of Sidney, British Columbia, Canada, Waterline vessels are distinctive and highly regarded as some of the finest long-distance cruising sailboats in the world. She is a world cruiser with electrical systems, tankage, comfort and storage for extended periods away from port. Her long/deep fin keel with bulb ballast and partial skeg-hung semi-balanced rudder offer a wonderful balance of speed, responsiveness and comfortable motion. While steel boats are sometimes faulted for being heavy, TRUE LOVE takes advantage of steel?s strengths while keeping structural weight to a minimum. Impact resistance and structural integrity are absolute. The center of gravity is kept low to maximize righting moments by placing tanks, engine, batteries, and generator low on the waterline The lead ballast is in a bulb appendage all the way at the keel bottom and the diesel tank is in the fin cavity.
A truly unique feature of TRUE LOVE is her integrated pilothouse offering 360 degree views. The pilothouse can be fully enclosed or opened to the cockpit with power aft windows that drop down at the touch of a switch and a companionway door that recesses into a self draining pocket. This creates an excellent place for round-the-clock passage making as well as enjoyment dockside or at anchor.
The craftsmanship is impressive. It?s easy to understand why it takes over two years for a team of skilled tradesmen to construct a quality yacht like TRUE LOVE. She is equipped with quality systems and conveniences including a SidePower 24V Bow Thruster System, Leisurefurl in-boom roller furling system, Cruising Arch with solar array, Northern Lights Generator, Webasto hydronic diesel heating system with 5 zones and Everhot instant hot water feature, Spectra Santa Cruz 18 gph Watermaker and a Spendide washer/dryer.
The Standing Rigging on TRUE LOVE was replaced in 2020 and maintenance of all systems is impeccable.

Since 1982, we have been striving to build the best offshore sailboats possible. All our customers have had specific requirements for their boats, and most have kept in touch over the course of their cruising. Since many of our boats have been variations of earlier projects, we have been able to refine and improve original concepts. Many of our clients bring vast experience to the design table and in doing so help with the evolution of all Waterline Yachts. Over the years we have been fortunate to assemble a crew of dedicated craftsmen who, due to their love of sailing, gain immense satisfaction turning their dreams into reality. Almost oll of our crew are experienced offshore sailors or racers, so they know what it means to be in a small boat on a big ocean. You can depend on their top quality workmanship and attention to detail.
The hull and deck are constructed of mild steel (minimum 44,000 psi yield) with a plating thickness of 3/16â€ on the hull skin, Â½â€ on the keel bottom, Â¼â€ on the keel sides, 11 gauge on the house, deck, cockpit, and transom and 10 gauge on the skeg and rudder. The angle framing system runs both transversely and longitudinally. All seams are welded inside and out. 316 Stainless steel attachment points are provided on deck for stanchions, windlass, toe rails, chainplates, and companionway hatch.

A truly unique feature of TRUE LOVE is her integrated pilothouse offering 360 degree views. The pilothouse can be fully enclosed or opened to the cockpit with power aft windows that drop down at the touch of a switch and a companionway door that recesses into a self draining pocket. This creates an excellent place for round-the-clock passage making as well as enjoyment dockside or at anchor. The yacht can be comfortably operated from this pilothouse on cold dark nights offshore or it can be used in nice weather with the windows open. A unique feature is the access from the pilothouse into a sensibly arranged equipment room / workshop. A hatch under the pilothouse settee provides easy access to step down into this space. Once in the equipment room you have excellent access to almost all of the essential systems including the main engine, generator, fresh water maker, heating system, refrigeration system, electrical components etc.
TRUE LOVE has a well conceived layout for both offshore cruising and extended time living aboard while in port. She features two private queen size staterooms and 2 heads. There are generous amounts of storage incorporated throughout the yacht. There is hurricane rated glass with reflective coating in 8 fixed windows above deck and 12 fixed port lights. 5 opening ports and 7 overhead opening hatches provide excellent ventilation. A Webasto hydronic central diesel heating system with 5 separate air handling zones keeps the yacht warm and dry. An Everhot On-Demand water heating system is tied into the Webasto system which provides unlimited hot water while underway or at the dock.
One enters the yacht from the cockpit into the raised pilothouse with 360 degree views through the large safety glass windows. The pilothouse is a functional space to run the yacht in adverse conditions. It is also a comfortable space to relax in port or at anchor with commanding views. Crew in the pilothouse can easily communicate with those in the cockpit through large opening power windows. Under the starboard settee in the pilothouse is access to the huge equipment room / workshop.The equipment room / workshop conveniently houses essential equipment such as the main engine, the Webasto Hydronic Diesel Seating system, the EverHot on demand hot water heating system, the Spectra WaterMaker, the Northern Lights Generator, the Glacier Bay Refrigeration System and many other essential systems. There is easy access to the engine room. A fold-down workbench makes a convenient spot to make repairs while comfortably seated underway.
Access to the accommodations is excellent from the pilothouse down the wide safe companionway steps. Once below, one finds shelter and elegance while still enjoying their surroundings through the abundant fixed windows, ports, and hatches.
