Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Steven of Boatshed Falmouth. Register or log in to see 40 more photos of this boat. The Pintail is a pure cruising yacht and very traditional. With her long, ballasted centre keel and two shorter bilge keels, she is quite handy to windward and has the advantage of being able to take the ground. A low draft allows exploration of crusing waters other deep keeled yachts cannot reach. She has a lovely shear line, good deck space and easy sea-kindly motion. She is a nice dry sail and has a good deep cockpit. She has several channel crossings to her name and has also participated in a few "Classic" events. If you are looking for a traditional, cruiser with plenty of nice wood, then take a close look at this Pintail. These boat details are subject to contract.
