Scandinavian Pilothouse Boats

Minor Offshore 37
These boats are extremely popular in Scandinavian countries and are starting to attract some interest in the U.S.  I have never seen one in the wild, but I expect that it's only a matter of time.  While they are certainly not for everyone,  I think the design could have significant appeal in the Pacific Northwest and New England where the weather is always cooperative and the seas can be dicey. I especially like the typically Scandinavian attention to detail and careful use of space, you can check out some good examples of the type at Minor Offshore (Finland)
