Buccaneer 18 Sailboat Parts and Sailing Equipment

Class Description

The Buccaneer 18 was designed by Rod MacAlpine Downie and originally commissioned by the Chrysler Marine division. It is is a wide-beamed and powerful sit-in dinghy. With a roomy cockpit and easily handled controls, the double-handed "Bucc" is manageable by one and can accommodate as many as three people. She is fast and planes in 8-10 knots. The sloop design includes a spinnaker with launch tube, the wide beam at the waterline plane eliminates the need for a trapeze. Well-balanced, self-righting, and self-bailing, the Bucc is embraced by a lively class that spans from Alaska and Toronto to South Carolina and Arizona. The "Bucc" is considered to be a "sit in" rather than a "sit on" boat...
