About this Buchanan 35' Bermudan Sloop


1960 Buchanan 35' Bermudan Sloop, with new mainsail, genoa and mast, and replacement Yanmar 3JH4E engine, all fitted last year. 'Easter' is a beautiful boat, built of teak and she has a number of attractive features, making her a great classic boat to own; she has a huge 6'4'' headroom in the cabins, and for a wooden boat she's relatively low maintenance, requiring just one coat of varnish each year,and a scrub and antifoul which can be both be done over a couple of weekends. She's been performing excellently since her new sails were fitted last year, and is regularly sailed by her current owners, meaning she's in 'ready to go' condition.

Owners Comments

I’ve owned Easter for 11yrs, I particularly wanted a classic yacht, drawn to the elegant shape and beauty of wooden boats. Being 6ft 4” I also wanted a yacht I could comfortably stand up in, Easter ticked all the boxes. She has been described as an exceptional yacht, ideal for anyone considering off-shore voyage’s where strength and sea-worthiness are as important as performance and comfort. I can definitely agree with this, I have travelled to France, channel Islands and this Summer spent 6 weeks aboard travelling around the West Country and Scilly Isles. She always feels safe, no matter what the weather throws at you, in fact she has been across the Atlantic three times, with previous owners.

Easter was built to Lloyds 100A1 (maintained in class until,1982) and above average specification using the very best materials. Alan Buchanan himself said the standard of workmanship and finish by William King was exceptional. Much was written about her when launched in 1960, featured in Yachting World annual. The design is typical Alan Buchanan, who at the time was leading his field with Class 1 yachts. She has a long keel, steeply raked transom stern with transom hung rudder. Planked in teak, all copper fastened to Canadian rockelm closed-spaced timbers and 3.25 ton lead keel and bronze bolts. Fabricated galvanised steel ring frames forward and aft of the mast give extra strength to the coach roof. The deck is solid teak, self draining cockpit with exceptionally large lazerettes, useful for storing; ropes, fenders, outboards, paddle boards, spare fuel, water and many other useful or non-useful things.

Having spent the past few years re-furbishing her from inside to out, she receives admiring comments wherever she goes and with her new sails is performing really well. I am reluctantly selling her as I would like to spend time sailing in the Med and further afield to the Caribbean and would prefer something a bit larger as a liveaboad and more suited to a hot climate.
