Sailing Magazine describes the Pacific Seacraft as; “solidly built, the Orion 27 is a capable cruiser that can take you safely to sea in comfort and style for as long as you like.”

‘Peregrine’ would be a great boat for a young family just beginning their adventures on Puget Sound, or an experienced sailor chasing that dream of long-range cruising. 

A stout and strong offshore cruising sailboat, this Pacific Seacraft Orion has just been thoroughly cleaned, refinished, restored and repaired where needed, and she’s all ready for you.  See details and photos below, then come see her soon.

We think you’ll be impressed.

Boat History and Recent Work

This very popular Pacific Seacraft ‘Orion’ had been owned and well used by the same couple for close to twenty years.  They’ve decided to continue their boating aboard a new Ranger Tug, thus choosing to make this donation to us.  

The ‘Peregrine’ was moored in Quartermaster Harbor on Vashon Island.  Her owners had been starting and running the engine regularly, being careful to check batteries and systems.  The hull was scraped and cleaned routinely in the water.  She had not received consistent and necessary attention to her overall appearance.  We ran the boat to our Seattle docks and her Yanmar diesel performed well; good temp and oil pressure, all other indicators being correct.  We consistently made close to 6 kts., not bad at all for a stout, modified full-keel offshore cruising sailboat !

Once at our moorage area we began refinishing the exterior cabin and cockpit brightwork in Cetol Marine Light, finishing in late September.  There was evidence of multiple previous finishes, all of which had weathered extensively, so we thought it best to simply strip all and properly prepare and re-coat.  This job was done with only the most minimal and necessary sanding, due to the many previous refinishings – along with age and salt water.  It was also apparent the teak bow pulpit, and especially the caprail of the bulwarks, had been previously sanded multiple times over many years.  We elected to only scrape away old splotchy varnish, clean well with TEKA to restore and brighten the teak coloring on these pieces, then seal with Starbrite Clear Teak sealer.  Now, the brightwork and the caprail show nicely.  Plus, the decision to use the Cetol Light finish product means a good longer lasting appearance, with a minimum of preparation needed prior to re-coating a couple of season from now.

The sail inventory was taken to Ballard Sails shop for inspection and measurement.  Their report of condition is noted above. 

The interior has been well cleaned.  Woodwork and interior paneling cleaned up with Murphy’s then brightened with furniture polishes. 

In addition, we needed to do many, many small and minor repair jobs for pump replacements, wiring, switches, re-sealing hatch plexiglass, replacing fasteners, etc.  Safe to say there are a couple of hundred crew hours devoted to bringing the ‘Peregrine’ back to her current good condition.  We are confident she is fully functional and quite well suited for her new owners to enjoy.

 About Our Pacific Marine Foundation

We are selective about the vessels we accept into our program and we pursue a very rigorous process before they are listed for sale.  This begins when we first meet with our donors to discuss the condition and recent upkeep of their boat.

Once accepted, each new arrival undergoes a thorough examination similar to what a marine surveyor will do.  This allows us to prioritize our attention to any deferred maintenance or repairs that may be needed.

Over the years we have performed just about every kind of marine repair, from electrical and plumbing issues to all types of appearance enhancements and even rebuilding engines.  If something is not working right we fix it, simple as that.  We prove that her electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems are correct, safe and functioning properly.  By doing all of this we know our boats quite well from top to bottom and present them fairly and honestly to buyers.

We encourage you to have our boats professionally surveyed as a part of your purchase process.  By the time we’ve finished and the boat is advertised, we’re confident you will receive a strong report from your surveyor.

Thank you for considering PMF boats in your search !
