Wooden Ships Comments on this 35′ Buchanan Sloop

Designed by Alan Buchanan and built to Lloyds 100A1 by Harry King & Sons, Burnham in 1960.

She remained in Lloyds Class until 1983.

Bought by the current owner in 2010, she has been sailed extensively with trips around the UK and northern Europe.  In 2020 she had a refit with new mast, sails and rigging and replacement Yanmar engine along with new shaft and propeller.

Her design is typical Buchanan and offers excellent headroom and interior space.

A well proven and capable yacht with a rich and well documented history.  Recently refitted and ready for the season.

Offered at a very attractive price as the owners are moving abroad and need to find a new home for the boat.

2020 survey available.
