Beneteau 400

Pirate Girl is the largest charter sailing boat on Lake Erie and perfect for larger families and groups.  She is roomy, comfortable and performs like a dream-- comfortable and stable. On deck, the large cockpit with bimini provides excellent protection form sun and weather and room for the whole family.  Under sail, the full batten main and large furling headsail deliver the performance you want, yet the shoal draft allows access to the fantastic anchorages Lake Erie has to offer. Ready to explore more? Our boat comes equipped with an optional 10 foot dinghy with outboard too!

Down below she is everything you expect in a 40 foot yacht. Full dinette, double sink, large refridgeration and three sleeping cabins.  All this is topped off with an upgraded sound system!

Pirate Girl has been refreshed and updated in the last year with all new winches, all new hatches, a brand new air conditioner, new furler, new BBQ grrill, new VHF radios with DSC, a new Garmnin color GPS/Charplotter and a new stereo with iPod connectivty.
