And Ready To Cruise!

The 31' Pacific Seacraft Mariah is considered to be one of the best built and designed sailboats in the world.  This Pristine full teak interior 31' Pacific Seacraft Mariah when built, was known as the most expensive production cruiser of its size in the world, because of the quality of materials, and the quality of her construction.  The current owners really have taken great care of her, and are constantly upgrading her. They recently updated some of her electronics.   They replaced the standard  22 hp engine in 1994, which the owners said did not have enough power for this size vessel, with an upgraded 35 HP Yanmar 3HM35F.  This engine was last overhauled in 2004 and runs great.  The transmission was completely rebuilt in 2012.  This Pacific Seacraft Mariah is also equipped with the upgraded option, and desired factory installation of "wheel steering" with auto pilot, versus the standard tiller found on most of these vessels. These are just a few of the many extras features found on this vessel. This Pacific Seacraft Mariah is cruise ready and waiting for you to take her on her next new adventures now!  


This Vessel has eight bronze portholes in the cabin, a forward hatch in the Master Stateroom, and the main cabin has a removable butterfly hatch for plenty of natural light during the day.  There are screens for all 3 hatches.  At night there are two teak Alpenglow lights in the galley area with either white and or red lights. The other three cabin lights in the cabin have been converted to bright energy saving LEDs.   Most forward is a door to  a split anchor locker and a large V-Berth with shelves along both sides.  There are also three storage areas and storage drawers found in the Master Stateroom. Coming  out of this Stateroom you will find the door to the head to your right. This boat's head has a stainless sink both with a  pressurized water system.  It also contains a newer Thetford Headmate toilet, solar exhaust vent, and a teak mirror. Across from the head there is a hanging locker where the Cruiseair air conditioner is located with storage beside and below.  Continuing aft you enter the Main Salon. On the port side you will find a double settee, suitable for sleeping two. The Salon also has shelves for a television or computer monitor.  A terrific feature of this vessel is the dining room table when not in use, can easily be stored along the bulkhead (See Photos).  This really opens up the salon and really gives it a very open feeling.  When you want to use the table you simply swing away the table from the bulkhead, and it almost sets itself up. You can set the table up for one to six people, and the table can be put in numerous positions to allow easy access through the settee with the table up.  The starboard side in the Salon has a single settee, which will sleep one. Beyond the salon is the U-shaped galley with double stainless steel sinks, with pressurized water, a dish rack, storage areas, and a two burner stainless steel gimbaled Origo stove with oven, on the port side. On the other side to the cabin  you'll find a  top opening refrigerator/freezer with a digital  thermostatic control.  Going forward is the lighted navigation table with Drawers. When not using the navigation station, it is on the same large counter top where the top loading 12 volt refrigerator is, so you have a lot of room to prepare meals, and after dinner lay out a lot of charts. You will also find a lot of storage in this area, and also more storage under the huge port settee, and below the teak and holly sole.   Water storage is below both port and starboard  settees, along with water shut off valves for each of the water tanks.  In the Cabin you will also find three bronze lamps, four fans, six DC outlets, and four AC outlets.
Yanmar Diesel Engine
You will find an reliable updated 3HM35F Yanmar 35 horse power engine in this sailboat, which was installed in 1994, and is an upgrade from the original, less powerful engine. This engine had a major rebuild in 2004 when the engine had 2598 hours on her, so with the latest rebuild in 2004 and the engine clock at 4063, the engine only has 1465 hours on her since the rebuild in 2004.  The Engine Transmission was completely rebuilt in 2012. Engine access is aft of the companionway steps.  This engine, and for that matter this boat, has been  meticulously  taken care of with timely and continuous maintenance and frequent upgrades.
