Chrysler C-13 "Pirateer"

C-13 - Code Flags


Source: Chrysler Brochure, 1977

GENERAL: Chrysler's 13' planing-hull sailing dinghy is portably light in weight, yet safe, stable and forgiving for beginners -- a great trainer, a family fun boat, or a winning challenger for experienced sailors. Handsome, wide-open and beamy with a powerful bow, she has foam flotation in hull, spars and between hull and deck for safety. She'll hold 2-3 people with ease. Her sloop rig-mainsail, jib and optional spinnaker is easy to handle and enables her to walk away from other boats of her type, even in the lightest of breezes. If knocked down, she's easily righted by a single hander.

She's practically maintenance-free with her smooth fiberglass hull, textured anti-skid surfaces and corrosion-resistant rigging, hardware and fittings. Her design and style give her the look of bigger sloops.

Hinged mast step for quick, easy rigging and unrigging. Kick-up rudder. Wooden locking daggerboard. Hiking stick on tiller. Textured, skid-resistant surfaces. Molded-in seats.
