Re: Buccaneer 18 vs Mutineer 15
The choice depends on how you want to use the boat. For racing, go with the Buc. And hold on!!!! The boat has a well earned rep for being a handful. And it is FAST!!!
That said, its smaller sibling is no slouch. The Mutineer is not the handfull that the Buccaneer is. Of course it's not as fast, and it's tamer nature, IMO, makes it a better daysailer. Especially if you are sailing with kids or non sailing Significant Others. You know, where trying to scare the crap out of them isn't the goal.
The class association for the Mutineer seems to be more active, better organized, and all around a better resource.
If one of the boats has a more active fleet nearby that would weigh heavily if i was going to race the boat.
