The Pilot6 is rated for outboards up to 90 hp giving speeds up to 32+knots, however a 50hp will provide a more comfortable cruising speed of 18-20 knots, (24 knots max.). The hull is reinforced with an internal girder system connecting the hull and deck creating a very strong and rigid structure. This arrangement also forms four separate buoyancy chambers, all filled with foam giving over 1,200 kg of buoyancy.
Another seaworthy feature is the main deck that sits above the waterline allowing aft deck drains to be fitted in each quarter, ensuring that the main deck rapidly self drains even in the worst conditions. A really practical feature is that the deck drains are lead straight aft through the transom allowing any blockage to be quickly cleared, with a non-return flap to help prevent water sloshing back up to the deck.
The cuddy has generous headroom with seating arranged in a ‘U’ formation. Two large side lockers provide dry storage with an open central ‘locker’ which can either be used for a porta-potty, general/fish box storage, or with the seat top hinged-up you can stand while leaning through the forward hatch (saving your knees!) for mooring or anchoring duties. The anchor being stored in a self draining locker accessed from the foredeck.
Seating and locker space is also provided aft. Two ‘wing’ lockers provide general storage with a deep central locker large enough for two fuel tanks and more, so no excuses for cluttering up the deck with loose gear.
