Description/Condition

Pacifc Dream is a very special vessel from the Little Hoquiam Shipyard. Little Hoquiam?s are used regularly in daily commercial applications throughout the current driven, rock infested waters of the Pacific Northwest, and beyond.

She is currently certified by the USCG, as an off shore (100 mile) vessel, with certification for 28+2, and she carries a letter of stability for 49. She is ideally suited for continued commercial use, and she is a very capable candidate for research, passenger ferry, or personal use. Her hull form and low center of gravity combine to offer her owners and guests with a remarkably stable ride in a variety of sea conditions. Converting a private yacht to heavy commercial use just does not produce the same result in terms of offshore safety. By the same token, if those with adventure in mind wish to add interior refinements to this vessel, they would end up with a very handsome vessel, robust enough to confidently venture anywhere in safety and comfort---all at a price well below a used recreational yacht's entry level price.

Along with Pacific Dream?s high day use occupation limits, she sleeps 9 in various staterooms and berths throughout the vessel. If used commercially, her crew of 2 can sleep separate from the guests aboard.

She was built as a beautiful, yet very tough commercial vessel from a clean sheet of paper, through execution. Her layout from her very thick hull layup includes a sealed collision bulkhead forward, with no chain locker as it is a commercial reel, topsides. Aft of the area set aside for her staterooms is another water tight beam to beam bulkhead which sections off a huge 11 by 18 foot room currently used for storage and a large chest freezer. This area is dry, isolated and clean and it would lend itself well to continuing use for storage, but also to house sensitive research equipment or a lab, should Pacific Dream be dispatched for research or film crew support This large area is followed by more watertight bulkheads which house the engine room, another one separates the beam to beam tank room, and one last bulkhead is followed by the lazarette, all the way aft.

Pacific Dream is an ideal candidate for charter fishing work, commercial ferry work, and research. She is also well suited for varying adventure travel assignments as she has the room and heavy construction which is necessary for dive crew support, where you need dive compressors and tank storage on board. There is plenty of room up top for enough kayaks and other gear for her allowable guest limits.

Her original owner had her built to his specs, and this is why her house dimensions (width wise) were reduced. This allows for double wide side decks where people carrying a variety of gear can move freely. This also resulted in cabin space which remains ample, yet lowers the vessel?s center of gravity for smooth ride and significant reduction in roll.

She is equipped with easy to use, state of the art, proven electronics and safety equipment.

Pacific Dream should be compared with any new, like vessel. No evidence of a spill or mishap is present anywhere on board.

Her sharp entry cuts through the water, and her dramatically flared bow, rolls the waves out and downward, reducing spray and producing a very level ride. As the bow begins to dip in to the wave, the reserve buoyancy of her flared bow comes in to play, producing one of the finest rides afloat. Her very wide decks are coated with an extremely durable surface, which is suitable for both heavy boots and gear, and bare feet alike. Cleats are mounted high, eliminating toe stubbers on board.

When fishing, her captain leaves one of the salt water wash down hoses on all the time in order to keep her decks clean and footing sure. Along with sure footing, secure hand grips are present throughout with schedule 40 welded safety and grab rails, rounded edges, and every piece of safety ge

Accommodations

Pacific Dream is a wide open, comfortable and safe cruiser. Her pilot house has two helm seats as well as additional bench seating, accomodating 6 or 7 peoplein her whellhouse, as well as plenty of room in her large galley/salon, when under way.
Pacific Dream sleeps 9 in total, beginning with 7 berths below, in 2 staterooms, and even a sick bay berth in the lower shower/vanity room. 2 additional berths in the pilothouse. Sleeping qtrs begin forward, just after the watertight bulkhead forward, with collision section.
Up a few steps from this level is the dining/galley salon. This area is just above deck level, with large Sea Glaze safety glass windows for unobstructed panoramic views. Even the dining is raised up a step to take advantage of the views. Pacific Dream's layout adds to her hull form, combining to minimize seasickness as those aboard are always in view of the horizon, unless sleeping in the staterooms below. Moving aft, you are flanked by separate men's and women's spotless commercial grade heads. Her heads are equipped with vanity surfaces with sea rails and a drain at the end of the counter so everything stays put when under way, and drains away from you if anything is spilled. This is just one of the hundreds of design features which cost nothing more to build, but show the tireless commitment to build the most functional and robust vessel that her builders possibly could.
Her side decks are fully 3 feet wide, so that people can pass without turning sideways. Her decks are uncluttered and coated with a highly durable non-skid coating which is durable enough for work boots and heavy gear, yet feel great under barefeet.
Steeler has a LARGE storage room, 11x18'. In this room you will find a tool box, numerous spares, a 20 cubic foot freezer, and beam to beam shelving. Steeler's decks-side, fore and aft- are all wide open and add to the extensive living space inside.
