Plymouth Pilot 18

< Back to search


The Plymouth Pilot 18 is one of the longest-running and best-loved boats in its class, a true classic, still as popular today as when first launched in 1971! Spirit is a beautifully presented late build from 2013, fitted with a very high specification including the largest 20hp engine option, dual helm positions (forward wheel and removable tiller), extra teak rubbing strakes, chartplotter with repeater aft, VHF radio, stainless steel fittings, additional cleats, and more! She also comes with an almost as new SBS road trailer, and represents a great opportunity to get afloat in a very lightly used boat for a significant saving of apx. £15,000 when compared to new prices.

General specification

Spirit has been fitted with a host of extras including a forward cuddy offering sheltered seating from the elements, extended seating to provide additional space and make entering and exiting from midships far easier, extra teak trim, dual helm positions, and a bathing ladder. They offer a stable sea-kindly platform perfect for day cruising, fishing, and generally enjoying being afloat, so despite their seagoing nature, they are just as popular for use on rivers.
