Wooden Ships Comments on this Ebbtide bermudan cutter
Alan Pape Ebbtide with a counter stern, built at the Heritage Boatyard in Kidderminster under the supervision of a professional Marine Engineer in 1991/1992, and launched in 1994.
The Ebbtide is a popular and highly regarded blue water design from the hand of the successful Cornish designer Alan Pape. These boats are tough, capable and very spacious below decks making them excellent blue water cruiser and live aboard yachts.
This boat has had a lot of refit work in recent years including hull plating, epoxy coating and new standing rigging. She has recently been ashore for a thorough paint job and is currently looking very smart.
These immensely capable boats are not to be underestimated, and with their attractive lines, counter stern and nice sheer it is not surprising that they are so highly sought after. Full list of refit works in recent years available but she now requires more remedial work to bring her up to extended cruising condition.
