Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. A well-known mini-cruiser that sails very well for its size. It combines useful accommodation with pleasing looks and is lightweight and easily towed behind a medium family car. The large self-draining cockpit has well shaped seats with foam cushions. Flat combings and a deep well makes this a very comfortable boat. Sailing in light airs, Pirates defy the criticism that modern boats are under-canvassed, they are a pleasure to handle, well balanced and full of zip.See "more photos" to view 25 internal and external photos of this vessel.
