Van de Stadt Pionier 9

Hi all,

I am looking for any info, reviews, experiences on the Van De Stadt Pionier 9 (Pioneer 9).

I know Nicolette Milnes-Walker sailed one non-stop across the Atlantic single-handed and Herman Janssen circumnavigated in one both have written books.

Any other info would be appreciated, any links to owners blogs or websites.

Thanks

Hello, We have been sailing on an E.G. van de Stadt Pioneer 9 meter (1961) on Lake Superior since 1971. It has been in the family since then. It is extremely well built and can handle any weather with ease. It goes to weather extremely well. We have sailed many times in very steep 10-12' waves and the boat handled them like a dream. It is very stiff, and the hull never pounds. It is definitely not a light air boat, but with moderate to heavy air is very fast. We considered purchasing a C&C instead, but chose to have the Pioneer 9 professionally upgraded. It was well worth it. She's worth every penny.
