The Boreal 47 is an attractive centerboard cruiser built in aluminum and designed to take care of its crew in any kind of weather. Its unique doghouse/hard-dodger incorporates a deck-level nav station with wraparound views of the outside world and a discrete vent with a baffle system that pumps air into the aft cabins below the cockpit. Collision bulkheads fore and aft, a bulletproof companionway door and tall stand-pipe through-hulls are just a few of the features that make this a tough “go anywhere” yacht. The integral centerboard allows the boat to take the ground with ease, and the concentration of weight amidships, including a deep midship anchor-chain locker, makes for an easy motion in a strong seaway. The unique twin daggerboards aft help ease steering loads, plus there’s a hefty sprit forward for flying light-air sails.
