about our heritage

Pacific Seacraft was named by FORTUNE magazine as builder of one of America's best products. Well over 2,000 Pacific Seacraft yachts, from the mighty Flicka to the stunning Pacific Seacraft 44, have been sailed with confidence and comfort to the far corners of the world. They are beautiful; they are superb performers; they are strong....very strong.


Pacific Seacraft is featured in "The World's Best Sailboats, Vol II" by Ferenc Mate.
" As in Volume I, I chose only builders who truly have their hearts and souls in sailboats, who continue to contribute and invent, while never losing sight of practicality, quality, and beauty; their works are ones you could safely and proudly pass down to your children."

  - Ferenc Mate, 2003.


W.I.B Crealock

Bill Crealock

"Gentleman Bill” Crealock has earned worldwide acclaim for the art in his yacht designs. The challenge of design is far more than dimensioning a form for interior accommodation. The legacy of distinguished yacht design has been to create a shape remarkable for its function and its form. Notable yachts elicit an emotional response because there are relatively few of them. The shape of a yacht is the essence of pride of ownership.

Bill is a man with an artist’s sensibilities in a gracious persona. In his design work, he draws on his years of worldwide cruising, and his intense attention to detail that he gives to designing yachts that he knows will carry their crews across the world’s oceans.

Crealock models 31, 34, 37, 40 and 44 are currently in production in our east coast facility.



" During my years as a marine archaeologist I had the privilege of working on some of the world’s most famous shipwrecks.   It was also during this time that I became intrigued with ship design and enamored with the designs of William Crealock, NA.  I have long admired his artistry and consider it a rare privilege to be able to carry on such a fine tradition of stalwart and beautiful sailing yachts."
