Bristol channel Pilot Cutters

New Vessel – Mascotte Original Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter

1904 Mascotte needs little introduction to pilot cutter fans. At 60ft she is the largest surviving Bristol Channel pilot cutter, and with her beautiful cream sails and sheer elegance she cannot help grab all the attention of the whole fleet at events like the Classic Sailing Pilot Cutter Review.

The Edwardian pilots certainly knew how to live when they were on board. The saloon is plush, good sleep was important and the sailing performance had to win their pilot trade for them. It was important to be seaworthy, fast and impressive. All the right ingredients for an amazing charter holiday experience too. From Spring 2020 we are thrilled Mascotte will be offering voyages from Cornwall with Charlestown Harbour and Classic Sailing.

If you want to pay homage to these incredible working vessels, built to withstand some of the wildest seas around our coast, then a few days sailing Mascotte would be a perfect pilgrimage.

She is open for bookings but with only 5 berths and a small season this year these are likely to go quickly.

There is a 4 berth cabin at very affordable prices and single owners cabin for a bit more voyage fee. If there are a couple that want to experience the double pilot berth (more like a cozy cupboard space with doors) then that is possible with a price on request that is cheaper per person that the 4 berth cabin bunks..
