Since the introduction of the first Pilot Saloon sailing yacht in 1991 Wauquiez shipyard has built over 300 yachts of this type. The Pilot Saloon is a blue ocean cruiser with a very unique approach towards world-wide cruising offering day-light, space, comfort, safety and the pleasure of sailing.
All our yachts are entirely built in house at our yard in Neuville-en-Ferrain located just 15 minutes above Lille, combining true craftmanship and the latest technologies.
The Wauquiez Team is enchanted to present our latest model of the Pilot Saloon range: The new Pilot Saloon 42.
The new Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 42 has a high-performance hull shape.
The straight bow stretches the waterline to the absolute maximum length resulting in better performances and higher speeds.
The powerful bow and soft hull chines provide a high shape stability, very important for offering a sailing yacht behaving well in all conditions.
The Pilot Saloon 42 has a powerful stern suited for a double rudder configuration making the boat easy to helm downwind and at the same time reducing the wetted surface which improves the sailing performances in light winds.
We also paid special attention to the appendages. The Pilot Saloon 42 is fitted with double rudders offering optimal control at all points and conditions of sail; We offer a deep draft keel of 2,15m lowing the center of gravity and offering ultimate sailing performance and a 1,75m short draft keel for those who like to navigate and anchor in small and shallow creeks.
With the Pilot Saloon 42 Wauquiez shipyard has created once again an elegant and innovative sailing yacht. The boat has great exterior views and our design team has created very comfortable sailing yacht suited for blue water cruising.
