bilge version of the world famous long keeled 36ft Alan Pape, Ebbtide design, which is renowned as a traditional style cruising
yacht ideally suited for long ocean passages and comfortable live aboard life styles.
Built and fitted out by the owner, she was launched in August 2003.
consists of a large forecabin, heads, saloon with dining table, galley and navigation
station and 2 aft cabins. There is ample wardrobe space and storage for foodstuffs, etc. She has 6 berths. One double berth in the forward cabin, 2
saloon berths and 2 quarter berths.
She has a Yanmar 4JH3 56hp
4-cylinder diesel engine and fuel tankage to give a range in the region of
Her rudder is transom hung which makes for
safety at sea and also for ease of self steering. She is equipped with a Hydrovane
self steering wind vane system but can also be made to self steer on many points of
sail simply by careful attention to sail trim and balance. She has a wide flush deck,
many handholds, substantial stanchions, lifelines and granny bars near the mast which
all make for safety while offshore. There are no holes in the deck. All gear (mostly
stainless steel) has been attached to stainless steel backing plates which are themselves welded directly to the hull. This was done to stop any ingress of moisture
and to make for easy maintenance. The hull, deck and insides of the craft were all
shot blasted professionally and epoxy primed immediately to prevent any oxidation of
the steel. After two coats of epoxy the interior was sprayed with expanded polyurethane foam which has resulted in an extremely dry interior. Books can even be
left aboard in Ireland in winter!
