The Pirate, a 10 m² bent-span dinghy, was drawn in 1938 by German dinghy designer Carl Martens, who won a competition for it in Yacht magazine. Originally, the boat was called 10 m² Einheits Jugendjolle. The name Pirat was then chosen, following the American custom of choosing lyrical boat names, also through a contest held by this magazine.
Subsequently, the Pirat became the most widely built all-wood sailboat in Germany.
The Pirate is a youth dinghy. It was designed for sailing in inland areas, but is also excellent for regatta sailing in coastal areas of the Baltic Sea, the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Wooden pirates were popular cruising sailboats in the past. Today, modern racing pirates made of plastic are used almost exclusively as regatta boats.
However, regattas are sailed with the pirate as long as it exists. In the past, it was the only class in which German youth championships were sailed. Currently, the class has more than 380 participants in the official ranking list in Germany alone, making it one of the most active regatta classes in Germany. Among other things, about 70 ranking regattas (national and international) are held annually in Germany. Internationally, there are currently 216 ranking regattas.
There are active regattas in Germany, Bulgaria, Denmark, Austria, Poland, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Hungary, Turkey and Chile.
Various championships are sailed with the Pirate in Germany every year. In many federal states there is a LM (Landesmeisterschaft) and a LJM (Landesjugendmeisterschaft U19), where the U17 champion is determined at the same time. Over the course of a week, the IDM (International German Championship) annually determines the German champion and the IDJM (International German Youth Championship) awards the youth and U17 championship titles.
The original was used as a template for the kit, and comparable materials were used whenever possible.
The kit is a wooden kit with simple hull planking. All parts have a high degree of prefabrication and are cut cleanly and precisely by laser cutting. Mahogany, maple and walnut mouldings are used in the kit, all fittings and accessories are mainly 3D printed plastic. A model stand is included. The illustrated building instructions are only available in English but are easy to understand due to the many drawings.
Suitable for modelers with little experience, this is a quick build kit.

entwickelt sich zu einem Schmuckstück, wenn man genau nach Anleitung vorgeht. Ein geschicktes, ruhiges Händchen ist sehr zu empfehlen. Leider ist die Anleitung nur auf türkisch und englisch. Die vorgelaserten Teile passen gut zusammen und lassen sich mittels entsprechenden Klebern, die nicht dabei sind, gut verarbeiten. Der Beschlagsatz besteht leider aus abgezählten Teilen, hier wäre die ein oder andere Klampe oder Öse mehr sehr begrüßenswert. Ansonsten ist das Material in ausreichender Menge vorhanden. Ich kann dieses Modell zu diesem angemessenen Preis- Leistungsverhältnis nur weiterempfehlen.
