2004 Benford Pilot House

Northport, New York


CASA ISLENA is a sailing yacht for those who intend to stray from the beaten path. She is robust, accommodating and well designed sailboat that can be easily sailed by a short-handed crew. She features diesel heat plus air conditioning, a low hour 5.5KW generator, Schaeffer boom and headsail furling and an interior that offers two couples a high degree of privacy. Her steel hull by Marine Metals is fair with a lovely sheer by Jay Benford. Decks are low-maintenance non-skid, lifelines and stanchions are suitably high, true to the offshore pedigree. 

All trades considered

The pilothouse design allows crew and skipper to remain warm ( or cool ), dry and safe. This is a boat that could easily sail around the world and not look tired when finished.
