The new BTC-22 (‘Buckley Trail-able Cruiser 22’) Mark 2 is a British built performance trailer sailer which has been designed around the needs of single handed, family and racing sailers alike.

Boasting a resin infused hull* for a high degree of ‘stiffness’ at a low weight the BTC-22 also offers a powerful rig, a large open cockpit, coupled with a contemporary hull shape, long water line and twin rudders. So, the BTC-22 is sure to please the sporty sailor whether single handed or with a full racing crew. The deck plan uses modern high spec trimming systems, making for an efficient sailing experience with maximum enjoyment. There is plenty of storage above deck with two cockpit seat lockers and one large locker under the cockpit sole, big enough to take an outboard motor and lots besides.

Two versions of this Buckley pocket cruiser are available – the cruising version (BTC-22) is fitted with a swing keel and the performance version (BTS-22) is fitted with a lifting bulb keel and more sail area. Both versions are compact and light enough to be trailerable.

The BTC22 is a fun family boat too with plenty of room below deck.  In the large airy cabin the BTC22 has 4 berths – one generous, 2 metre V berth and two giant settee berths measuring 2.5 metres each. Add a galley unit, a removable dining table and space below the V berth for a removable chemical toilet and you have all the components needed for comfortable overnight stays.

Boats on Wheels are offering the latest Mark 2 version of the BTC22 with a long list of improvements to the Mark 1. This new boat boasts a cored hull and deck for more buoyancy and better thermal and sound insulation, more freeboard for a drier ride, an even larger cockpit, a refined stainless steel/carbon fibre rod steering system, frameless bonded windows, composite toe rails and stanchions moved outboard for wider gangways.
For more details of these improvements please give us a call.

*Important Environmental Note: BYD are using ‘green’ resins and cores in this vessel. Approximately 1,400 plastic bottles are being recycled in the manufacture of each boat!
