54' Privateer Pilothouse Trawler DON PIPO
54' Privateer Pilothouse Trawler DON PIPO

This Dutch treat was built at the Privateer yard in Uitwellingerga, Holland by an open checkbook owner who is in the commercial maritime industry. Additionally, the owner is a long-time boater and was selective in choosing his builder and the vessel components for cruising in the US and Caribbean. Although certified CE-A for all oceans, her shallow draft makes her ideal for the Bahamas or the Great Loop. The CE-A rating allows for safe passage at wave heights of 4 meters and above and winds that may exceed 8 Beaufort. A yacht that can go anywhere, any time. DON PIPO is captain maintained and in excellent condition.
