Notes

Same as the BUCCANEER 18. When Gloucester Yachts purchased the molds for the BUCCANEER 18 in the mid 1980's, they renamed it the GLOUCESTER 18. BUCCANEER 18 PRODUCTION HISTORY: Chrysler Corporation - 1968 thru 1980, hull #1 thru approx. #4050. (Just over 4000 boats built). Texas Marine International (TMI) - 1981 thru 1982, hull approx. #4051 thru approx. #4750. (Around 700 boats built). Wellcraft Marine Corporation, Starwind Division - 1982 thru 1984, hull approx. #4751 thru approx. #5000. (Approx. 250 boats built). Gloucester Yachts - 1985 thru 1986, hull #5001 thru #5059. (59 boats built). Cardinal Yachts - 1987 thru present, hull #5060 thru #5065, #5100 thru #5106 and #5200 thru #5214. (28 boats built). Nickels Boatworks is current builder.
