Excalibur 36

Despite being designed primarily as a long-distance cruiser by E G van de Stadt in 1963, the Excalibur also enjoyed a successful racing career, winning the RORC Class II Championships in 1963, 1964 and 1965.

Excaliburs are noted for being light and positive on the helm, even in heavy following seas and strong wind conditions.

Moulded by the Tyler Boat Co, the GRP design proved to be immensely strong. Most Excaliburs were completed by Southern Ocean Supplies in Bournemouth, later renamed to Southern Ocean Shipyard, some by Van de Stadt in Zaandam, Holland and at least one has been completed by Anne Wever in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Holland. At the end of her production run in 1970, the Excalibur SK was available with a cutaway keel and a skeg rudder instead of the original spade rudder. In all, 52 boats were built.




Hull, decking and superstructure of GRP with encapsulated lead ballast keel. The whole moulded as one piece without keel bolts etc. By todays standards Excalibur is over-build and osmoses is hardly every noticed on Excaliburs.
