Bayliner Marine

1975-1978?

portable

20 gal.

Approx. trailering wgt.: 4,600 lbs.

In the 1970s, sailboat marketers perceived a public outcry for more space below, more creature comforts, and more features which would appeal to women. Many yacht designers couldn't face the prospect of ruining the graceful appearance of their creations by raising the deck of a small sailboat beyond what looked good. But Bayliner Marine, used to designing powerboats which already were boxy enough to have more or less the same silhouette as a wedding cake, had no such compunctions. Ignoring conventional aesthetic considerations, Bayliner came up with the high-topped but roomy design shown here.

Best features: What? A 21-foot boat that sleeps six, has 5' 8" headroom, a dinette, and a full galley including a built-in icebox? Feast your eyes. Oh, and she's got positive foam flotation. Worst features: All the design considerations that allow the "best features" listed above also mean a high, boxy look and excessive windage, that can cause poor upwind performance from sideways slippage (accentuated by a too-shallow fixed keel). The Buccaneer 210 also has a very low SA/D ratio and a high D/L ratio, both tending to make her slow in light air. And the cabin sole and sides of the hull are covered with plush pile carpeting. Ugh!
