Buccaneer – 16 for sale
4.88 m/16 ft
South West, Cornwall, United Kingdom.
Peggy V is a 16′ open inshore fishing / pleasure boat.
Built by Buccaneer Boats in Cornwall in 2006 with a ‘no expense spared’ remit, she is similar in many ways to a Cygnus 16, having been designed by the same chap.
As such she was constructed to full commercial specification, which means she has a very thick and strong hull, with solid iroko gunwales that are protected with 1/2 round brass strips all around.
Underneath, the main and bilge keels are protected by full length stainless steel rubbing strips.
For propulsion she enjoys a sweet Beta 13.5hp, with very low hours which is combined with a full Beta control panel.
However, Peggy V has lead a very sheltered life and has spent most of her days ashore and when at sea only used for pleasure trips and the occasional spot of fishing.
She comes on a 2010 custom road trailer.
Specifications and equipment include…
16′ Buccaneer open inshore boat
Bespoke breakback road trailer

Trickle charge solar panel
Hand bilge pump
Automatic electric bilge pump

She also has a main mast, should conversion to sail be required. (This acts as a great ridge pole for putting her tarpaulin over)

She is currently in my driveway, in Helston Cornwall. Available to view any time.
