Buccaneer Fleet

Class website

The Buccaneer 18 celebrated its 41st year in 2011. The Buccaneer’s designer was speed genius Rod MacAlpine Downie and originally commissioned by the Chrysler Marine division. The Buccaneer 18 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. 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.
