  • Hello William, Good to hear from you. My main reason why I have to part from my Privateer Celena is the fact that I am a widover ( my wife died a couple of years ago ) and I therefore have not got time to cope with my home, house and two other boats I have. I would be very pleased if Celena could come back home as I know that trailing boats are common in the UK. Here in Sweden we...

  • Hello Oliver and our new Swedish member of this group, I have been a member for some years, live in Sweden near Nyköping and I am the owner of CELENA with sail number 13. I have worked on my boat many hours and I have altered a few things to make her a better sailing boat. All things from good advice through the Group Privateer 20. I wish our new member good sailing and I am ready...

  • Yes, I have constructed a sliding hatch on my Privateer "Celena" based in Sweden. I have also made a new longer and movable bowsprit. I will try to enclose some photos with this message. Best wishes Arne Rudström

  • Hello Aart and Jonathan, I have with great interest read your information about ballast in Privateer 20. I have the boat Celena in Sweden, which seems to number 13. I have two floor boards and below there is space to put ballast as one of you have done. I will do the same and put extra weight also below the cock-pit floor. I fully understand what space Aart refers to in the front...

  • Hello Oliver, I am a Swedish owner of the Privateer "Celena" of which I sent a few pictures to this group earlier. The boat was in a bad condition when she was given to me two years ago. When I read your and other sailors comments on her bad sailing qualities I hesitaded if I should bother to restore her. But at the same time I was curious to know from my own experiences how she...

  • Hello Chris, Your comments and photos means a lot to me and other owners of Privateer boats I am sure and it is good to hear that you will be a member of this Yahoo group even when you have sold your "Bluebelle". I would certainly be a buyer of her if I had not lived in Sweden with a Privateer to renovate. I have often looked at your photos and will continue to do so to get ideas...

  • Hello, It was nice to hear that there are more than one Privateer in Sweden. My boat "Celena" needs quite a lot of renovation work, but I also hope to do some modifications at the same time. As I got the boat on land and have not yet sailed her myself I have hesitated now and then wether to make the job or not. The reason is all texts written about all the weak points of the boat...
