The Buccaneer 200 is an American trailerable sailboat, that was designed by Alan Payne and first built in 1974. The boat was built by Bayliner Marine Corporation in the United States, but it is now out of production.[1][2][3]

The Buccaneer 200 is a development of the Columbia T-23 design, using the same tooling to build the hull.[1]

The Buccaneer 200 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, a transom-hung rudder and a fixed long shoal-draft keel. It displaces 2,100 lb (953 kg) and carries 750 lb (340 kg) of ballast.[1][2]

The boat has a draft of 1.75 ft (0.53 m) with the standard keel, allowing beaching or ground transportation on a trailer. It is normally fitted with a small outboard motor for docking and maneuvering. The cabin is small but includes a double berth, a quarter berth, galley with a sink and a fold down table.[1]

The boat has a PHRF racing average handicap of 276 and a hull speed of 5.58 kn (10.33 km/h).[2]
