Looking for a 19 Pilothouse along the lines of a Defiance Yellowtail.
If you are thinking of selling let me know.

Thanks

Man I’d love a new Arima, but was hoping someone was looking to sell their Defiance. I may need to call the dealership though.

Thanks

The 195 yellowtail is pretty hard to find. Love them though. Good luck in your hunt

If you make it to San Diego there is one on Loring Street, Pacific Beach, its been in there drive way for about 3 years. I dont think ive ever seen it leave the drive way. Might be worth knocking on their door.

Yeah I realize these are kinda tough to come by. I have limited space to park a boat and am looking for one of these to fill the space. Just looking to see if someone is moving up or just looking to sell theirs. Thanks for the help.

Defiance’s 195 Yellowtail is deceiving when it comes to its specs. It’s not 19 1/2 feet long. It’s listed LOA is 20’7” but when you really measure it from bow roller to end of engine it’s 23’6”. If parking space is your limiting factor, I’d take a hard look at that 19 Triumph custom Pilot House listed on here.


Either way, the 195 is unique for sure. Goodluck with your search.

Thanks for the reply. It prompted me to remeasure. My parking space is 11 feet wide by 26 feet long. I had recently parked a 19 Whaler Outrage on a dual axle trailer and it did pretty good. 4A6BCB8A-B022-4FD3-84EA-B259F66C5DE7.jpeg
I’m looking for a Pilothouse in that range taking into consideration the LOA and trailer tongue. Looking for something with a cabin to overnight in with my son. That Yellowtail seems to fit the bill.

Thanks for the help

Seen a couple of Steiger 21 Peconics around too. Similar layouts.

As I understand, the "Yellowtail" is a little tippy. Just saying, Best of luck on your quest.

Someone usually sells one every 2 years. I gave up my search on one, as they would sell quick too. Went for an arima sea ranger pilot house instead

I’ve stopped by the boat on Loring Street and talked to the owner. He is not looking to sell but he gave me a lot of pointers for my boat. I currently have a Tiderunner 195 which is the same build as the Yellowtail minus the cabin. However, we are building a custom pilot house on my boat right now!

Those Peconics are great looking. Wish it was closer to the west coast. But worth a hard look.

Expanding the search to an 18-21 Pilothouse. If anyone is trading up let me know. Thanks.
