This site is intended to be a guide to those who are seeking to buy, build, or sail a pocket cruising sailboat. In my shopping around for a pocket cruiser, I found that there were few websites dedicated only to this type of boat. I thought I'd share what I found with other web cruisers. I'm defining pocket cruiser as a trailerable, easily launchable sailboat of 30 feet or less with a cabin that provides some sleeping quarters. These boats should be fairly easy to handle on the road behind typical cars. A smaller boat is less expensive to buy and maintain. Almost anyone can afford a used pocket cruiser, so ownership is open to almost anyone. I hope you enjoy your visit - Chip

The Pocket Yachts are at the core of Stevenson Projects' building adventures. These four boats are our most popular projects and can offer great adventures — sporty sailing fun, romantic weekend cruises, transformative summer projects, swashbuckling journeys exploring your local lake — thousands of builders have had all sorts of satisfying experiences in these boats. Technically, the Super-Skipjack isn't really a Pocket Yacht (in that it doesn't have a cabin) but as it is directly in the same family of designs as the Weekender and Vacationer, we think it should be here as well. A few builders in the past have chosen to leave the cabin off the Weekender to create open-decked versions; now the Super-Skipjack fills that desire handily!
