There are Buccaneers and then there are Bucaneers. Some are at least designs from recognized and well regarded designers.
The 305 (Bill Garden), the 22 and 25 (they became the US22/US 25 -Gary Mull designs) and the 295 and 33 (Doug Peterson) at least have decent pedigrees.
The shoal draft/high freeboard 21/24/etc are simply scary boats (IMO of course)
But hey, whatever gets you out there!
