Re: bayliner buccaneer sailboats homepage

Crazy ideas are only crazy if they don't work and you keep trying the same idea over and over. If they work, then you may just have a stoke of GENIUS!

Have FUN!

Re: bayliner buccaneer sailboats homepage

thank you for the response, i did get my question answered, sounds like more than i want to get into right now--but, seeing as this is a buccaneer page....there is a 210 for sale on craigslist for 950 (portland or.)---not mine, and nothing wrong with keel ( I'm working on another crazy idea)

swb311 I recently bought a Bayliner Buccaneer 210, and we have been very happy with it. It seems to be in excellent shape for a 31 year old boat. We were out a few days ago and got stuck in a storm with steady 25mph winds with gusts up to 40mph and had no problem keeping her upright.

GeorgeBettoney To chinatiger1763 -- just how heavy is a Bayliner Buccaneer 240? We've bought one used and were told 4000 lbs., but it looks heavier, and we're worried about towing it with our Chevy Trailblazer.

mtboat Well I don't resurrect old threads but since this one is here today.... I have a 74' Bucc 240. The bad rep for Buccs started when one sank in very suspect conditions...overloaded to the point of danger as the retractable keel on that model allows water in if you are low enough in the water, that and a wind/wave condition, and no pfd's on the kids, alcohol, etc.These people sunk themselves. Most all other testimonials are positive. Also the Bucc site at MSN was shut down, we are now at BaylinerBuccaneerGroup : Bayliner Buccaneer Group

Protest of ignorant replies....

I was looking up Bayliner sailboats to see if I could find the one my family had when I was much younger and came upon this post and the ignorance of the negative posts..

The other person who was writing tried to convince others what a horrible sailboat this was and I really have to disagree, so I registered to do so.

The Buccaneer 240 my family had was very safe, in fact Velger Marine where the sailboat was purchased took one out on Lake St. Clair (MI) during a horrible storm and TRIED to sink it because of it's reputation and for testimonial. They couldn't achieve this endevor and knew going in it wasn't going to happen, but wanted to prove to customers how safe it was.

My family and I were on the way from Sandusky OH back to MI in the middle of Lake Erie and a storm came on very fast! There was only my step-father, my mother and myself (a twelve year old scrawny girl) and although it was quite frightening we made it through unscathed. The only part of the storm that could have been hazardous was when the storm passed we had gotten dangerously close to a little island that we were lucky enough not to run aground, as we could not see anything except the buckets of water coming down.

I would never hesitate to set sail on a Bayliner Buccaneer and hope the people with misinformation don't scare away others from doing so!

Thanks for your time!

Is it possible to rig this boat with roller reefing?
Yes, you can absolutely add roller furling to your boat. For a quote on a furler and genny, try contacting one of the online sailmakers such as FX Sails which is a sponsor of this site or Cruising Direct which is a division of North Sails. Any sailmaker will have the dimensions of your rig and can custom make sails for you.
