The Bristol Channel Cutter is certainly among our favorite blue water boats for many reasons. The BCC built by Sam L. Morse is a fiberglass pilot cutter based on the beautiful wooden cutters that Lyle Hess designed for Lin and Larry Pardey. Of course Lyle copied the real pilot cutters of the Bristol Channel and the south coast of England. We saw them in Cornwall and they make your heart skip a beat. Lin and Larry Pardey have made these boats somewhat famous. They have rounded every Southern cape and crossed every ocean in their wooden cutters Serifyn and Talisen. There are so many sailors who are in love with a very few channel cutters.

We love the Bristol Channel Cutter. We've sailed so many of them, in virtually every weather condition. When we delivered "Surprise" hull number 103 up to the Northeast, we had a great opportunity to fly the spinnaker for some 250 miles reaching speeds of 8.25 knots. Surprise remained as solid as a rock, safe, comfortable, has an incredible sea motion, and a feeling that is hard to describe. We've delivered BCCs from Florida to Annapolis, from New Port to Virginia. From Annapolis to Maine. And so many places. Bernie just did a 150 mile day with Indigo, and made record breaking passage time with SusieQ. Other owners have reported making 150 days one after the other in both the Atlantic and Pacific. We never hesitate to sail a BCC anywhere.

I really cannot say enough about how easy it is to sail a Bristol Channel Cutter! A small woman can easily do everything on this boat. With tiller steering you have hands free to manage the sails and everything is human sized. Her current owner single hands Pinocchio easily and with the new head sail furlers he reports it is way too easy to furl the jib! I love it. You will love it too.

The Bristol Channel Cutter was famously built by the Sam L. Morse Company in Costa Mesa, CA. Without any doubt, this is one of the finest yachts ever built and Sam was in continuous production for over 35 years. The factory recently closed its doors and sold the mold to Channel Cutter Yachts in Port Townsend WA. I guess it became too difficult and expensive to spend over 18 months and well over 300K for the world’s best 28 foot boat. However, there have been two BCCs built for about 350K in Port Townsend. So you can still have one built for a handsome sum. That makes this vessel even more precious.  

Pinocchio is the real thing. She was laid up in 1990 as hull #93 and is a sistership to my personal “Aloha” #95. She was completely finished to Sam L. Morse standards. She has had loving owners who have maintained her to a level of style and grace that the BCC is meant to have. Her teak and mahogany gleam with ten coats of new varnish and her bronze ports with a beautiful patina or salty and real. The interior is all refinished by a special owner a few years back and the new cushions and upholstery have kept her up to date. Talk about pride of ownership!

Pinocchio is just about as good as it gets if you are looking for a beautiful lightly used Bristol Channel Cutter. In about 2007 she was completely restored to original loveliness with new everything! Her current owner had her surveyed a couple years ago and fixed everything that was itemized and of course maintained her to the highest standards and improved her by replacing anything that needed attention.  Here is the latest list of highlights.


  • New Harken furlers on both the jib and the staysail 2016
  • New lazy jacks system
  • New batteries in 2017
  • New Link 20 monitoring system
  • Fatty Knees dinghy mounts on chocks under boom
  • New Shaw and Tenney oars for the Fatty Knees dinghy

  • Dodger, bimini, side curtains, mainsail cover, hatch covers ‘09
  • Running rigging ‘09
