The general build quality inside and out is superb with everything being made by hand in the one workshop in England, the upholstery in particular stands out as being as good as the best. Power is by outboard, 4hp is all you need. An outboard well puts the power in front of the transom hung rudder for superb control in ahead or astern and keeps the prop in the water in a seaway. This arrangement also allows for easy motor sailing on either tack if you are in a hurry. And what makes all this so good is that it only weighs 850kg and 1200kg on its road trailer ready to tow by just about any family car so you really can keep it at home over winter and do all those maintenance jobs.

It has 4 berths but most owners would say it is great for 2 or 3 adults/teenagers or 2 adults and 2 small children. The beds are spacious but if you use them all four of them then all your coats and lifejackets etc seem to be in the way at night. There is full cooking and sink facilities (double burner) and the toilet arrangement is ingenious. The loo simply slides away in the fore cabin on its own plinth during the day. The plinth keeps it at just the right height and it slides out for use with maximum headroom and legroom. If you want to use the double V berth at night the loo can be moved to a second plinth opposite the keel box which again gives maximum headroom and legroom in use. Way better than trying to cram an unusable small heads in a little boat. Headroom is excellent for a little boat, five feet at the hatch and storage is plentiful. One of the cleverest bits of the design is the use of the fore cabin during the day. The coach roof extends forward of the mast to give good headroom in the first part of the fore cabin. This allows the bed cushions to be repositioned into two very comfortable single chairs facing each other across the boat and this in turn takes pressure for space off the main cabin seating. Too many small boats treat the space in front of the mast as a permanent double bed making the small main cabin cramped during the day. The main cabin is very spacious due to the boat being very wide (eight feet) and the side decks being very narrow. It is possible to sit seven adults in the two cabins in comfort which is amazing for such a small boat.

The narrow side decks are still wide enough to make your way forward on deck should you need to and are a way better compromise than the common small boat approach of sending the guard wires over the cabin roof and omitting side decks altogether. The lifting keel is simple and easy to maintain at home and the boat can take the ground with the keel raised with only a slight heel.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
The Pippin 20 is a fantastic little boat allowing you to explore rivers & seas further afield without spending weeks sailing there, this example appears to be in good order with the trailer recently having new bearings & wheels. If your looking to keep the mooring fees down & have space on the drive this could be a very good option for you.
Viewing recommended!
