67' Perry 1993 ILLUSION


ILLUSION is truly an exceptional boat. Designed by Bob Perry and custom-built by Marine Metals Inc. of Virginia (Howdy Bailey), she is a powerful, first-class, offshore pilothouse sailing vessel. Further, she is close to a class of her own, thanks to her thoughtful and knowledgeable owners and long-time professional captain.

ILLUSION has not only been maintained like few others, she has been updated and improved like almost no other. Improvements such as HALL SPARS carbon spars with in-mast furling, (new in 2015), plus all new rod rigging (also new 2015), new engine and generator seven years earlier, are indicative of the standard by which ILLUSION has been cared for. Bottom line, ILLUSION is one those rare boats that needs to be seen as she is all the more impressive in person. If anything, photos fail to convey the detail and condition of this special vessel.

ILLUSION has three private staterooms, plus a skipper’s/crew single. Her galley, truly exceptional in form, function and especially size, integrates well with her equally generous salon. Belowdecks joinery is first-class varnished cherry with raised-panel doors, drawers and locker fronts.


The salon is open and airy with a U-shaped settee to starboard with a beautiful four-leaf, up/down multi-facet table that easily converts from cocktails to dining. To port is a fore and aft bench-style settee. Outboard of the settees are glass-front lockers and large hull ports with shades. An entertainment-sized flat screen TV is mounted on the forward starboard bulkhead. The navigation station is aft to starboard, and an open bar/staging counter with access to the galley is to port at the bottom of the companionway.

The owner’s stateroom, aft, has a centerline queen berth.

Spectra Newport 400 MKII:  Operates on as little as 15 watts per gallon (4 watts per liter), making it possible to run your system on a small generator, solar, wind or batteries. Multi-speed capacity allows machine operation on high mode for maximum product flow or low mode for maximum efficiency, making it ideal for onboard power management. The system will automatically switch to low mode to extend the pre-filter life in challenging feed water.
