Offered by Waterline Boats, this 50 Pilothouse Classic features a multi-level layout that makes wonderful use of its well maintained space.
It may be nearly 30 years old, but this Navigator 50 Pilothouse Classic is still bursting with life, featuring an unusual, multi-level layout that makes ingenious use of every inch of space.
Access to the boat can be made through the transom door from the molded swim platform. The outdoor aft cockpit leads to the salon, which contains a full-size couch and two chairs. A flat-screen TV, equipped with a Bose sound system, can be lowered into a custom cabinet to provide more space for entertaining.
From the salon, a small stairway connects to the pilothouse, galley, and dinette space, with an L-shaped settee and two individual stools. The galley has with a refrigerator, sink, and three-burner electric stove, and side doors provide access from the pilothouse to the foredeck.
Starboard of the galley is the lower helm, which features a Raytheon RLC Pathfinder radar, a Raytheon Tridata depth speed display, and a Raymarine C760 depth sounder, an Autohelm autopilot, and Standard Horizon VHF. A stairway in the aft upper deck leads to the flybridge, which has upper and lower seating areas, as well as space for deck chairs and a cushioned aft bench seat. The flybridge also has a helm chair and two companion seats.
The berths are found in two staterooms, each with its own head and shower, that are separated from each other to provide a high degree of privacy not often seen in boats of this size. A starboard stairway leads to the master stateroom, with a king-size berth and ample storage. The master head with a separate shower is located forward on the port side. Another stairway leads from the pilothouse to the guest stateroom, which has a centerline queen berth and seating on the port side. The forward head/shower can be accessed via the hallway or another private door from the guest stateroom.
An aft deck hatch gives access to the engine room, housing twin diesel 380hp, Volvo Penta TAMD 71B turbo-charged engines. The six-cylinder engines cruise at 10 knots, with a flat-out speed of about 14 knots.
Though built in 1993, there have been some recent improvements. At the stern, a dinghy cradle has been added to the aft end of the flybridge, saving deck space. The 2001 Caribe RIB dinghy, powered by a 30hp Yanmar outboard, can be lowered with a Nick Jackson electric lift arm davit rated at 1,000 pounds. Both heads were rebuilt and all black-water hoses from the heads to the holding tank were replaced in 2020. The current owner has also updated the pilothouse and salon with new carpets and flooring.
