1998 Peterson Pilothouse Custom

Long Pond, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada


Its not often you find a boat built to offshore strengths on a racing hull with an enclosed pilothouse with a first class cruising interior.

"Ocean Commotion" enjoyed the first portion of her life from 1980 to 1997 as a flush deck racing sailboat. In 1997, a conversion from the bare hull up started and by the spring of 1998, she was relaunched in her current pilothouse version. Her owners went further by redoing the pilothouse in 2006 to soften her edges.

She is a cruising man's fast passage machine complete with two cabins, two heads and a comfortable main cabin.

Stored ashore since 2011.
