When I bought Spintail in late 2013 she was described on the builders website as ‘The finest example of the Rossiter Pintail on our brokerage for years. Since my purchase of the boat I have continued to invest in her, updating the navigation and electrical systems as well as improving the keels for use in drying harbours. I believe ‘Spintail’ is in very good overall condition, well equipped and well maintained.
My use of the boat has been restricted to short cruises from our base on the east coast of Scotland. I have found her to be a dependable sea boat and rewarding to sail. The triple keel configuration has proven to be ideal for use in the small drying harbours around this area. Under full sail SPINTAIL is a pleasure to sail and a real head turner in port or at full sail’
