Pacific Seacraft 34 Sailboat
      S/V Ubiquity

The Pacific Seacraft 34, also called the "Crealock 34", was Bill Crealock's design for a slightly smaller and updated version of the Pacific Seacraft 37.*

S/V Ubiquity is hull #67, built in 1987. I bought Ubiquity for her offshore cruising design, her good construction quality, and the considerable cruising gear already on the boat. Then I worked on and outfitted the boat for my post-retirement cruising plans.

I have available on-line information about my cruising on S/V Ubiquity:

      See my blog, Ubiquity's position and where she has gone, plus photos and videos.

      *My friend Dave Mancini reports that in a conversation he was privileged to have with Bill Crealock, Crealock discussed what he had learned from the 37 design that he used to refine the 34 design.

My sailing experience with Ubiquity has impressed me with the virtues of the Pacific Seacraft 34 as an offshore boat, including her excellent tracking ability and easy motion in a seaway, combined with acceptable maneuverability in the marina. Whereas more performance-oriented cruisers would prefer a lighter fin keel with spade rudder design, and more traditionally-oriented cruisers would prefer a heavier full keel design, for me S/V Ubiquity occupies the sweet spot for offshore cruising, especially for an older person cruising with one crew member or perhaps alone.
