Explore the islands by sail boat
The Island Pilot is a gaff rigged sailing boat and has a sturdy glass fibre hull with built in buoyancy; varnished hardwood coamings, seats and trims; solid timber floorboards; nonslip deck surface and PVC fendering around the gunwale and polished bronze deck fittings. Moorings are available throughout the Islands and, with a lifting keel, the Island Pilot can be beached for a leisurely walk ashore. At 4.9 metres long, she is small enough to sail single-handed and big enough to accommodate a crew of four with ease.
