Coaster 33

This is a fi ne, traditional, long-keeled, 32ft motor-sailer drawn by Alan F Hill for Prior & Son. Launched in the late 1960s, she was exceptionally well built and appointed, with a heavy teak interior to a GRP hull. She had a central cockpit under an open wheelhouse with three double cabins. The standard inventory included refrigeration and hot water. A variety of rigs were offered, although most were bermudian ketches with enough area to give reasonable reaching performance. Windward work is best achieved with a bit of assistance from the 50hp engine. A Mk2 version was launched in 1975 which had less woodwork, more internal mouldings and a signifi cantly lower price tag. She remained in production for nearly 20 years.
