Hooray! We are pleased to offer a sleek and beautiful 2006 Pacific Seacraft 31! This Pacific Seacraft model has classic lines and is among the great small cruisers we appreciate right along with our Bristol Channel Cutters. Our lovely offering “Bella Luna” is in pristine condition, used only two months each summer, she has never left the Chesapeake Bay! Bella Luna is really well cared for. She shows as new in all regards.
We have known other owners of a PSC31 who have in fact tested their skills and their boat with a passage to Bermuda or across Lake Michigan. Make no mistake; this is a solid small cruiser that can take you off shore! The Scheel keel shoal draft draws only four feet! Have fun in the Bahamas!
Pacific Seacraft is a builder known for quality over many years. Bella Luna is unique as she is among the very last boats built by Pacific Seacraft in Southern California. Her owners were delighted they had an opportunity to buy her brand new and specify many upgrades and small customizations. They added options and upgrades to the tune of 43K!
The Pacific Seacraft 31 is a pretty special model with a delightful open plan that gives you an amazing amount of space to accommodate four people easily or cruise for months with enough provisions to live well! She actually sleeps six if you like.
Pacific Seacraft is well known for building ocean-capable sailboats that are strong enough for the demands of the sea. They have a salty, classic shear line that gives them a saucy attitude. The hull is solid fiberglass with vinyl ester resin. Their 4,400 lbs of lead ballast and full 11,000 lbs displacement give the PSC31 a sea kindly motion. Sloop rigged as she is, she carries 450 sq feet of sail in a totally manageable sail plan. She carries the fittings on the deck and mast for a cutter rig, as well. Ordered with the single-handers package, she is very easy to sail and safe because you do everything in the cockpit. For a solo sailor this is a perfect size and for a couple it is very easy to sail this boat. The space down below will amaze you. Our offering, Bella Luna, is extra special. First of all, she has every upgrade possible from a Maxwell electric windlass and wash-down pump, 80 amp alternator, dripless shaft seal, high-water secondary bilge pump, teak toe rail, teak rub rail with a stainless steel striker, shoal draft keel, Harken furler and single-handers rigging package with lines led aft to the cockpit, Ullman genoa with a foam luff for reefing, Garmin plotter and Raymarine ST60 sailing instruments with repeater at the helm, and more. Ultimately the factory extras added up to 43K! Even more importantly, Bella’s owners live in the middle of the US and sailed her for only two months each season out of Zahniser’s in Solomon Island on the Chesapeake Bay.
If you don’t already know, Zahniser’s is a full service marina and boat yard that caters to owners who take pride in their vessel and are determined that she have the very best care. Zahniser’s is well known as one of the very best yards on the Bay. Every year, Bella Luna was stored on the hard fully winterized and shielded with her custom full boat cover. Each summer she was fully commissioned by Zahniser’s, completely inspected, and given all the care she needed. She is as perfect and lightly used and well cared for as any boat could be. With Zahniser doing the heavy work of maintaining the exterior teak, polishing the hull, winterizing the systems, and recommissioning, the owners could just focus on giving the interior teak an annual oiling and maintaining the interior to perfections. The cushions are covered with slip covers and so the blue upholstery is in perfect condition. The boat is absolutely clean and orderly. All is ship shape and it is apparent that these owners love their boat and enjoyed their short seasons on the Bay.
If you want to own a beautiful, high-quality, blue water capable vessel that is in perfect lightly used condition you definitely want to consider Bella Luna. This 2006 Pacific Seacraft 31 is about as perfect as it gets! Call now!

This sought after Pacific Seacraft 31 is a perfect cruising yacht for a single hander, couple, or small family. The traditional interior features rich, hand-rubbed teak with light fiberglass accents. Ten large Hood opening port-lights and a deck hatch provide plenty of light and excellent ventilation.
The ambiance of this traditional cruiser is pleasing; and, for her size, she is spacious due to the innovative open layout. Starting forward is a 6'6” long V-berth complete with shelves and cabinets on the sides and forward, and drawers underneath. This is a large double berth with cabinetry on each side and stowage outboard. Just aft of the double berth is the main salon with two settees which double as sea berths 7' in length when the footwell is used. You often don’t have seven foot berths even on a much larger vessel. And that foot well is a secure place to put many things including your laptop while underway.
A large dining table slides out from beneath the V-berth to seat four comfortably. Because it disappears completely under the V-berth when not in use, the salon is open and spacious feeling with room to walk around. The grey-blue upholstery is in excellent condition, essentially new condition due to light usage and the slip covers. Further aft and to starboard is the nav station which features a large chart table cleverly built over the large refrigerator and freezer. It actually is larger than the refrigerator on many larger boats. The 12 volt refrigeration system works brilliantly. The chart table on top of the refrigerator has a small tilt-out drawer in addition to a large dedicated paper chart drawer. There is a gooseneck chart light that has a red as well as white light option over the chart table.
To port and aft of the galley is a huge double berth that provides accommodations for guests or incredible storage. You can use plastic bins and take all the ship’s stores you need for a winter deep in the Bahamas! The enclosed head is conveniently located immediately to starboard of the companionway stairs for easy access to remove wet gear when going off watch. The head is equipped with a faucet shower, sump pump, and wet locker. All available space has been ingeniously used for storage, which is impressive in capacity for a yacht of this size.
She is comfortable for four for a week and can sleep six if you use all the berths. For a cruising couple she is completely comfortable and easy to handle. She is a very nice little cruiser that will not cost you an arm and leg to maintain!
Electrical system is designed for comfort while cruising the Chesapeake with 12volt refrigeration. It is comprised of an upgraded 400 amp hour battery bank with brand new house batteries and is charged with an upgraded 80 amp alternator on the main engine. A Xantrex Freedom 15 inverter/charger provides shore power charging and inverting.

Hull and Deck Details
Being a 2006 Pacific Seacraft 31, this boat should not be confused with the old design of a 31 footer known as a Mariah. The new PSC 31 is a modern design inspired by the popularity of the PSC 37. They packed it all into 31 feet. The PSC 31 is a classic Bill Crealock design with a long cruising fin keel, skeg hung rudder, spoon bow, and vertical transom to increase the volume below. It is a very expensive boat for its size, and worth the money. There are no corners cut in this build quality, not to mention the extras these owners opted for.
Of course, the hull solid fiberglass is hand laid with water resisting vinylester resin on the outermost layer. Isophthalic polyester resin is used on the inner layers of glass matt and roving. The ballast is lead which is used for all high-quality boats. The shoal draft version draws four feet. The keel is the patented Scheel keel designed to minimize leeway and improve tracking. It works well and the boat is idyllic in the Bahamas! The rudder has an internal steel plate inside with fiberglass to form the rudder. It is skeg mounted for strength and good protection. The deck is built of marine plywood sandwiched between fiberglass. The non-skid is molded into the deck on top. The deck is attached to the hull with 3M 5200 glued, literally glued, and then it is through-bolted with 1/4 inch stainless bolts every four inches. This is an impressive build for any sized boat and at 31 feet it produces a monolithic, super strong boat!
Flat stern creates a surprisingly spacious cockpit for a yacht this size, but everything is still within easy reach for a singlehander. Cockpit seat benches are seven feet long, long enough to lie down on.
Sails & Rigging
The Pacific Seacraft 31 is a joy under sail and perfect for a single hand sailor or a couple. The singlehanders package provides easy sail handling from the cockpit. The sloop rig has a Harken furler for the genoa headsail and the single line reefing system for the mainsail makes it easy to balance in all conditions. The Lazy Jacks system keeps the mainsail tidy when dropping or reefing the sail.
