I feel like the defender of all things privateer!

One day last year I came in from a sail and a guy named john who owns a Santa Cruz 27 came up and asked me how I was going so fast.... Not saying a privateer could beat a santa cruz every day, or that the privateer doesnt have it's problems. It is a small boat. But she sails just as easy and just as fast as any other boat in her class.

More Kenner Privateer

Gillmer, who was a long-time professor of naval architecture at the US Naval Academy, did other small boat designs, including the Allied Seawind, the first fiberglass boat to circumnavigate.

On standing headroom: My Privateer ketch has over six feet. However, it was (is) an owner-completed bare hull project. The first owner may have set the cabin sole a bit lower than the factory boats.

FYI, Gillmer also did the last refit on Old Ironsides, about 1992. When last I checked, he was still alive and in his nineties in the Baltimore area.

wvejay,

I remember it having 5'11" headroom, but you're right, with a dropped cabin sole, you could get an extra inch or two.
