Boat Details

Pilgrim is a 1984 example of a design widely recognised as a motor sailer with exceptional sailing performance.

She has been well cared for and is uniquely suited to single handed and short handed sailing.  Pilgrim was not launched for the 2015 and 2016 seasons and the opportunity has been taken to carry out a major refit, as well as replacing some of the more critical items of gear.

Pilgrim is due to be launched at the end of March 2017 and is in all respects ready for sea.
