Since the introduction of the first Pilot Saloon sailing yacht in 1991 the Wauquiez shipyard has built over 300 yachts of this type. The Pilot Saloon is a true Bluewater cruising yacht with a very unique approach towards world-wide sailing offering day-light, space, comfort, safety and pleasure.
All Wauquiez yachts are entirely built in-house at our yard in Neuville-en-Ferrain located just 15 minutes north of Lille, combining true craftmanship and the latest technologies.
The Wauquiez Team is proud 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.
With a straight bow that stretches the waterline to the absolute maximum which results in better performances and higher speeds. The powerful bow and soft hull chines provide a high shape stability, very important for a sailing yacht that behaves 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.
