About this Custom Buchanan Cruiser Racer Sloop


Wooden Ships Comments on this Buchanan Cruiser Racer Sloop Designed by Alan Buchanan and built by Priors of Burnham in 1959 to Lloyds 100A1 standard for competing in RORC Class II racing. She proved to be a fast, successful yacht in her early years. She was featured in Yachting Monthly 1961. The design is notable for the extra beam, much more than was usual at this period. She has a large cock-pit with plenty space for the crew to work the yacht, wheel steering keeps the helmsman out of the way and her extra beam allows for wide clear side deck and plenty room around the mast. She had a major refit by David Moss Boat Builder, Fleetwood in 2007-8 with full photographic record and continuous updating. More recently she has had a new Beta Marine engine in 2018 which has hardly been used. 6 berths with 6’6” headroom, this is a very elegant and fast cruiser racer, ideal for classic regattas or just family cruising. Bought by the present owner in 2021 after she had been laid up afloat for a couple of years. The owner had planned to carry out the required refit but circumstances dictate he wishes to sell her again. The yacht had a full out of water survey carried out by a competent wooden boat surveyor in September 2021. This survey has highlighted exactly what is required to get the boat back into sailing trim and this work has been quantified by various boat yards with figures available to any prospective purchaser. This is a very elegant yacht in need of a refit before the sailing season. All the information is available to a prospective purchaser to make an informed decision about exactly what work is required and how much that will cost.   Length on deck 41’ Length Waterline 28’ Beam 11’ Draft 6’ Thames Tonnage 15TM     Construction Planked in teak, copper fastened to closely spaced Canadian Rock Elm timbers of 2” x 1.5” at 7” centres.
