Excalibur 36

In her day, the Excalibur was regarded as a large ocean cruiser and offshore

racer. Designed by E G van de Stadt in 1964, 52 were built by Southern

Ocean Shipyards in Poole on Tyler mouldings, with a sturdy masthead rig

stepped on the coachroof. She is long, slim, weatherly and sea-kindly with

a comfortable motion in a seaway and has a number of serious ocean

passages to her credit, as well as being highly successful in RORC Class II.

She was built to the exacting Lloyds

+100A1 standard and, like most

Tyler hulls, has lasted well and

there’s a low risk of osmosis.

She has traditionally designed

accommodation for six. The layout

works well at sea, though with

just 10ft (3m) beam, space is

restricted. She is a good option as

a first offshore cruiser and prices

are reasonable.
