The Swift Pilot Cutter is a historic sailing vessel that was built in 1869 in Essex, Massachusetts, USA. The Swift is a prime example of a traditional American pilot cutter and was originally used to transport pilots to and from ships in Boston Harbour.
The Pilot Cutter is a wooden-hulled vessel, measuring approximately 54 feet (16.5 meters) in length, with a beam of 15 feet (4.5 meters) and a draft of 7.5 feet (2.3 meters). The boat was designed for speed and manoeuvrability and was built to withstand the harsh conditions of the Atlantic Ocean. The Swift Pilot Cutter had a long and successful career as a pilot boat, and it is said that no ship it ever piloted was lost to a marine accident.
The Swift has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the US government and is recognized as an important piece of American maritime history.
