This is our first boat its been very forgiving while we have
learned to sail and manuver around in a marina. We have a 4 hp Chrysler OB, has place for porta potty the only changes we have made were to replace the poorly designed plastic framed windows. She has the original sails that came with her and all original hardware. We love sailing her and would recommend her as a great starter boat.Still looks good after 19 yrs of use gets many commpliments on looks. Just can't understand why this line of sailboats catches so much grieve from sailing communitiy because of its maker ???.

Pros: a lot of room, inexpensive
Cons: poor design, poor quality

Buccaneers are a product of Bayliner a name synonymous with those who know boats as a cheap, few hour, thrill boat. I have never, and will never sail a bayliner boat because I know the ocean and when you are on the water you need a vessel that you can rely upon. There is a reason why Bayliner is so ill regarded among those of us who spend great amounts of time on the water.

Pros:
Cons:

I'v owned A New Haven Sharpie, a Snipe, a Lightning, a Venture 17, a Columbia 26MKII, and I've just acquired a Bucaneer 22 which I have not sailed yet. I guess, though, that my ability to compare counts for something. I find it interesting as well as encouraging that all the positive comments on this boat come from those who have owned and sailed them. All the negative comments seem to come from those who have never even been on one.
They say that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. Many who have never sailed this boat have a little knowledge about them ( that they are made by Bayliner) The danger comes in when they spout off about a boat they've never sailed, not knowing that it has been designed by one of the foremost of naval architects, Gary Mull.
