Noun[edit]

sailer ‎(plural sailers)

  1. That which sails; a boat.

      She is the best sailer in the service, and she carries a hundred guns.
    • 1924, Herman Melville, Billy Budd, London: Constable & Co., Chapter 16, [1]
      Elsewhere it has been said that in the lack of frigates (of course better sailers than line-of-battle ships) in the English squadron up the Straits at that period, the Indomitable was occasionally employed not only as an available substitute for a scout, but at times on detached service of more important kind.
