Sailing pilot cutters

Pilot cutters carry a versatile gaff rig which is designed to give the vessel power and speed whilst arranged to be handled by an experienced crew of two. This rig has proven to be extremely adaptable for both racing and long distance cruising.

When carrying all their sails, these elegant vessels are most exhilarating to sail, while in their working rig they are able to maintain a steady cruising speed with an easy motion. When balanced the boats are easy on the helm and an absolute joy to sail.
