1966 36ft GRP Long fin keel (encapsulated lead ballast) with spade rudder, 7-berth Ocean Cruiser/Racer, powered by a single 2005 30hp Yanmar inboard diesel engine with shaft drive.
The Excalibur 36 is a powerful and fast all-weather cruiser by a well respected designer.
Interesting original history & a family owned boat for over 50 years.
Excalibur II could be sailed away as is, but could do with some updating in places.
Lying at Portland on hard standing.

E. G. van de Stadt designed the Excalibur in 1962, the design looking very like an enlarged version of his already very successful Pionier designs for GRP production, which were early examples of cruising boats with separate spade rudders, at a time when most cruising yachts still had long keels with keel-hung rudders.

All the Excalibur hulls were moulded by Tylers, with encapsulated lead ballast, and a GRP headlining moulding. Hulls were finished mainly by Southern Ocean Shipyard in Poole, who built about 50 of these yachts, but some were also finished in Holland by various yards. It is reported a that a very few later exapmples had a modified underwater profile with a fin and skeg rudder.

Despite being designed primarily as a cruiser, Excaliburs won the RORC Class II Championships in 1963, 1964 and 1965, but as racing designs evolved with more beam and smaller keels they ceased to be competitive, except in heavy weather.

They are now a good example of a classic cruiser-racer. Bigger and faster than a Contessa 32, and not dissimilar to a Nicholson 35, they are a very capable and strongly built yacht for bluewater or coastal cruising.
