The Pippin 20 was designed Pippin Yachts, which was founded in the 1990s and has been producing the popular Pippin 20 ever since. Crafted by hand this little yacht is made from fine materials and comes as a complete boat, with a choice of carpet and upholstery you too can have a hand in creating your very own yacht.
The priorities for the PIPPIN 20 were low cost, ease of handling and lots of room, all this plus ease of towing, launching and recovery make the PIPPIN 20 very economical and a truly great package, not to mention great fun for the first time user and the most experienced sailer.
Have just purchased a Pippin 20 after lots of research but not yet taken to the water as needs vhf, echo sounder fitting and other extras. Can say that she appears to have been very carefully designed and well built with attention to detail.
Can also say the mast lowering system works extremely well, managed it first time in a few minutes. Trailed without problem. Re stepped mast just as quickly. Will post info on how she sails soon.
Would be pleased to see comments from existing owners, with any tips on launching etc.
