The Classic Motor Yacht
For the Lover's of a Classic Motor Yacht, The Pilgrim 40 has won many hearts. This fine Canadian vessel was first created by H. (Ted) Gozzard, the designer, on a place mat in a Peterborough, Ontario restaurant. The concept was created for a friend as an ideal boat to use on the Canal and Inter-coastal waterways for nothing more than going slow and a sight seeing vessel for two, with occasional guests.
The boats themselves were created and built at North Castle Marine Ltd in Goderich, Ontario in the year 1982, and just fewer than 50 were built in total. The boat was marketed by "Pilgrim Marine Sales", of Toronto, Ontario. When this firm decided to build another boat in Mexico, namely the "Pilgrim Live-Aboard Yacht …PLAY 43" (also designed by H. Ted Gozzard) the "Older"model, being the "Pilgrim 40" was put aside and no further vessels were constructed after the PLAY 43 was being built in Mexico. Five PLAY 43 yachts were built in total, none of which had any association with North Castle Marine Ltd of Canada.
Many inquiries have been received over the years as to whether we shall ever re-introduce the "PILGRIM 40 Motor Yacht"; the answer is still no. We would like very much to re-visit the subject of a small trawler type Motor Yacht, but as yet the "Pilgrim 40" molds lay sleeping in the back yard.
