Yachting Brokers are pleased to offer for sale a unique and classic motor yacht in fully restored condition. ‘Pirate’ is an exceptional boat with a fine pedigree.
Built by Brooke Marine of Lowestoft (who went on to build the Virgin Atlantic Challenger) in 1974 she was Brooke Marine's the third to last Ocean Pirate 40 built.
Originally fitted with Cummins V8 engines she was used as a demonstration and trials support boat by Brooke Marine until being sold in 1986.
A major refit of ‘Pirate’ was commissioned by a previous owner and carried out by Falmouth Boat Co. It was decided to retain Cummins power and she is now equipped with twin 480hp units that whisk her effortlessly along at 36 knots plus.
The addition of a flybridge and bow thruster makes handling in port a pleasure. The interior has been completely refitted while retaining much of the original features though she is now equipped with the latest navigation and entertainment systems. In 2018 she completed her extensive refit with a bare metal strip of the hull and re-spray of hull, topsides and superstructure.

We are pleased to include with ‘Pirate’ an original advertisement for the 1969 San Francisco boat show, a scan of the original Ocean Pirate brochure and the build list of all the Ocean Pirates.

Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer of Yachting Brokers.
