Broker's Comments

Traditional, beautiful, dependable,practical, and seaworthy. probably the best way to describe the Pintail. With its GRP hull and solid mahogany joinery, it mixes the best of both worlds. With its Long centre keel and bilge keels and heavy displacemant it makes exploring all the more possible, whether deep or shallow.
