Tucker TL90

Brief details

Builder

E. C. Landamore & Co. Ltd., Wroxham, Norwich

An early GRP cruiser-racer by Landamores to a Robert Tucker design. The hull form is reminiscent of earlier Tucker ply chine designs, with a very firm turn to the bilge amidships and a relatively flat floor, whilst the coachroof has a curved moulded cone entrance instead of a sliding hatch, as in the Contessa 26 and Pandora designs of the same era

The TL90 was an early GRP yacht, designed by Robert Tucker as a racing boat in 1966, and built as a production cruiser-racer by Landamores until the mid-70s. With long overhangs and relatively narrow beam the accommodation is very small compared to typical modern 30-footers, with standing headroom only for the extremely short. Nevertheless, she has four berths, a large vee/double in the forepeak and two 6' 6" long quarterberths, galley, separate heads, and fold-down chart table. When built the TL90s were usually fitted with 6 hp Vire petrol inboards, or occasionally 7 hp Volvo Penta MD1 inboard diesels, or outboards.

In comparison to modern 30-footers the accommodation is small and headroom is low, but she does have all that is needed for two to four people to cruise

The cockpit is long, with a large lazarette locker aft. The domed hatch makes getting below rather more difficult than with a sliding hatch, but is simple, strong and cannot leak

Below: The accommodation consists of a forepeak with vee-berth convertible to double, small galley, a separate heads with basin and marine WC, and two quarterberths in the saloon, above one of which is a folding chart table
