30' 2002 Mainship Pilot 30


Last Updated: 2024-06-09

SARAH MACLEAN is an exceptionally clean and well maintained Mainship 30 Pilot that was re-powered with a new Yanmar Engine in 2018. She is turn-key and ready to enjoy with low hours, a SidePower Bow Thruster, and a great Navigation Electronics configuration including a GPS Plotter, Radar and Autopilot. She features a Nice Canvas and isinglass enclosure that includes screens for the delta and a spotless interior!

Mainship got it right with the 30 Pilot, a Downeast-style cruiser whose practical layout catapulted her into the ranks of classic small-boat designs. Built on a solid fiberglass, semi-displacement hull with a prop-protecting skeg, the Pilot is suited to a variety of uses. A large cockpit makes her a competent fish or dive platform, and her economical operation and comfort- able accommodations appeal to weekend cruisers. The cabin is arranged with a V-berth/dinette forward, a good-sized head, and a teak-and-holly cabin sole. Her single 240 hp Yanmar diesel will cruise at 15 knots and top out at 18'20 knots. A SidePower Bow Thruster makes docking a breeze!

A very economical pocket cruiser with a traditional appearance, this boat is hard to beat in terms of value, low ownership and operation costs. Hurry this yacht will not last long!

Additional Descriptions

Mainship Pilot 30 Overview

SARAH MACLEAN is new to the market and in exceptional condition. Her low hour Yanmar Diesel engine makes for an economical cruise at 16-18kts. This model stands out from the rest of her fleet with her nice canvas and isinglass helm enclosure.

The Mainship Pilot 30 is at home in the waters of New England as well as San Francisco Bay, or the San Juan Islands. The full keel provides excellent stability in a beam sea while allowing the boat to track like it was on rails. The classic down-east look is enhanced by the sturdy low-maintenance aluminum bow and safety rails.

Whether the purpose is to fish, dive or cruise, this Pilot 30 can fit the bill. The elongated cockpit allows for plenty of anglers, and the wide cover boards will accept a battalion of rod holders. The bridgedeck settees will double as extra bunks for the overflow of family and friends or as just a great place to relax. In the cabin, her large V-berth doubles as a dinette and the mid-seats provide a great place to relax with a good book. The teak trimmed galley comes complete with a one-burner range, a refrigerator, a sink and even an icebox. Storage is plentiful, while light and ventilation is provided by six screened portlights and an overhead hatch. The large head boasts a Corian counter, an electric toilet and an integral shower, plus dry storage and a mirror. The single diesel will propel the Pilot 30 at a pleasant turn of speed while providing a truly economical rate of consumption. The wood-free exterior makes cleaning and maintenance a cinch. The Pilot 30 is ergonomically designed to give the captain an excellent vantage point to observe surroundings and to pilot in safety.
