“Built in 1874 in Cardiff by Davies & Plain, Madcap is the oldest of the 17 Pilot Boats in the world today. She is now classified as a Historic Monument in France and in England. Madcap has been completely refurbished in recent years, respecting the original construction methods in every technical area where possible.
To sail on Madcap is to sail in the heart of our maritime history.”
