This Plymouth Pilot 18 is a traditional open motorboat which had been fitted out as a ‘Gentleman’s motor launch’. She is fitted with a forward cuddy with wheel steering and a forward throttle control to give some protection against the weather, while still maintaining tiller steering and a second throttle and gear shift at the stern. Her pulpit and deck fittings are high quality stainless-steel. She is a safe and economical displacement speed dayboat for 6 people, with modest running costs, marina and storage fees and ideal for day trips, fishing, picnics and family boating time in inshore waters.
