About this Custom Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter Breeze


Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter Breeze Wooden Ships Comments Breeze was built by Coopers of Pill in 1887 as a Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter, one of the smaller boats in the fleet and thought to be the only surviving example of a Coopers built cutter. Breeze languished for many years before being bought by the current owner and given to RB Boatbuilding in Bristol for the restoration. Her proper lines were established to put the correct shape back into the boat and she was rebuilt from the bottom up between 2014 and 2016. This was a total restoration, only several small parts of the original boat were left including the mast step and part of the main beam with the official number carved into it. All the planking, 99% of the frames, deck, interior and systems are new. The mast was used again but the rest of the rig was replaced. Breeze is now in superb condition inside and out, and a very pretty and fast cutter that can be easily handled by two people rather than needing a large crew as is required on the bigger boats. Interestingly she was fitted with twin electric motors and a large generator, a very satisfactory solution to the problem of where to place a prop shaft on a boat that was never designed to have one. The interior is stunning with 7 berths including a double in the saloon, finished in varnished oak. The large skylight makes her light and airy, access through the hatch is simple as the cabin sole and cockpit sole are not too different in height. A very rare chance to own an original Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter, a piece of our maritime heritage that has been totally restored and is ready to sail away.
