hi all thinking about buying a second hand pirate 21 has anyone got one of these boats and what are they like on the water and would it be to big to trailer and what would be right engine to have on it thanks
I used to use an L200 myself, excellent tow vehicles, I think mine was rated to 2.8 tonnes towing limit ?hi headlight what other options would you go for do really want to trailer i know the pirate is a big lump to trail but that i fancy currently have a export 175 warrior drive a mitsi l200
The 175 has a reputation as a very wet boat locally - consequently there aren’t many around. A mate had one...Very well built but not suited to our conditions. This Pirate 18 has just been put up for sale second hand by Pirate. It came up on my Facebook feed an hour ago...Thanks for the reply's , i have a export 175 it is okay on a flat day when there is a little chop . I am getting spray from the front of the boat when i am on the move in lumpy weather , and pitching when driving on choppy day and isn't stable on a drift. My friend has got a pirate - Baywatch 18 and rides the water much better.
