40' Pacific Seacraft 40 2000 Dream Catcher


DREAM CATCHER is a “high-above-average to bristol” example of Bill Crealock’s swan song design of an ocean-cruising yacht.   Her sail plan, canoe stern and Scheel keel provide ample down-wind stability in a serious following sea, with excellent upwind performance, with a draft permitting her to visit shallow anchorages.

DREAM CATCHER was built and delivered to her original owner in 2000. The current (2nd) owner acquired the boat in 2008, and subsequently had her completely re-fit here in the Northwest, including interior amenities and soft-good design by renowned yacht interior designer, Sylvia Bolton.   DREAM CATCHER’s equipment list, including bow thruster, water maker, generator, 2-zone HVAC, 4-zone hydronic heat, extended fuel and water tankage, extensive electronics package, with 48-mile radar, VHF w/ DSC, SSB, FLIR, AIS and much more, make her an excellent Pacific Northwest explorer, or comfortable and safe world-cruising yacht.
