Top definition
A pirate that takes over the ship, and instead of stealing stuff from the crew, they forcibly buy stuff from them. They usually price things higher than what they are worth. After they buy what they want, they kill the whole crew and don't take their money back. Not to be confused with its homophone birate.
"Did you hear that Tim's boat was attacked by buyrates?"

"Really, is he ok?"

"No, they bought his watch from him then killed him."

"That sucks."

"Tell me about it."
