The PISCES 21 DAYSAILER was inspired by the traditional Herreshoff fish class daysailer, and designed by C W Paine in 1999. These small yachts are finished to the highest standard of the Maine Boat Building tradition, the finest daysailer/week-ender you will find anywhere, a great Long Island Sound boat. A carbon fiber mast aids her already pleasing sailing performance and makes stepping and rigging a breeze. Lady features features an Advanced 4.15hp Electric Motor and Drive. Very well maintained by her knowledgeable owner she shows well and ready to go.
At just under 21 feet overall (20 feet, 9 inches), the Pisces has a waterline length of 16 feet, 4 inches and a beam of 7 feet, 2 inches. Even with an external lead keel weighing 1,600 pounds (just under half of her total displacement), she draws only 2 feet, 11 inches. Under sail the Pisces 21 has the feel of a bigger boat, thanks to its deep and roomy cockpit and the inherent comfort of riding in a sturdy, steady-going displacement boat. Yet it is simply rigged and easy to control, and it responds nicely to even a light wind.
The full keel fiberglass hull is infused using vinylester resin. White Gelcoat finish is standard. The rudder is also molded fiberglass with a foam core. The lead ballast keel is externally bolted with 9 X ½” #316 grade Stainless Steel bolts and the rudder pintles and gudgeons are also #316 stainless steel.

A bronze winch is provided to the main halyard. A bow to stern teak rub rail adds extra protection to the hull/deck joint as well as adding a nice aesthetic sheer detail.
Large and deep cockpit with 6 ½ foot seats angled in harmony with the coamings for comfort. Seats, coamings and trim are teak (according to market price and availability) or mahogany (varnish is optional). Shelves for stowing loose gear, drinks, lunch or VHF are provided between the seats and the hull. Deep bilge compartment is easily accessible through a lift out hatch for pumping.
