With her very pretty and characterful appearance, the Privateer 20 is a deservedly popular family trailer sailer. Purchased by her current owner in 2003, this boat is understood to be in excellent condition. She comes complete with a well built, well balanced trailer which, like the boat herself, has been well looked after. Sadly for sale due to her owner’s retirement from sailing. Sensible offers will be considered.

Please note: This vessel is not currently sailed on inland waters and so has no BSS certificate.
