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.
Main Salon Additional Features:
The owner’s stateroom, aft, has a centerline queen berth. The stateroom runs full-beam, providing uncommonly generous seating, book shelves, lockers, cabinets/drawers and varnished teak and holly floor space. Few sailing vessels of her size can match the generous feel of ILLUSION’s owner’s quarters.
Owner’s Cabin Additional Features:
Forward of the salon are two double staterooms for guests. Both have private heads, each with stall shower. The VIP guest stateroom to starboard accommodates a double berth, while the port guest stateroom has upper and lower single berths. Joinery, like the rest of the boat, is of varnished cherry, and there are opening ports with shades, plus teak and holly soles.
Guest Staterooms, Additional Features:
ILLUSION’s exceptional galley is aft of the salon and behind the companionway. The space is so great, one is tempted to call it a kitchen -- an excellent live-aboard layout!
MIDSHIP SKIPPER’S/CREW CABIN
Across from the galley is the skipper’s/crew single cabin. This cabin is well-placed and has decent storage under the berth. The vessel’s washer/dryer is located at the entryway facing aft, and there is a hanging locker forward.
Crew/Skipper’s Cabin Additional Features:
