Brief details

This yacht is one of the Alan Pape designed Ebbtide 33s, Ebbtides being one of the classic long-distance yachts, with a long full keel, transom-hung rudder for strength and ease of installation of a windvane. Many hulls were amateur-completed, so layouts and interiors may vary greatly

Ebbtide 33

Alan Pape, of the Curtis & Pape boatyard in Looe, Cornwall, designed the Ebbtide 33 and 36 yachts as heavyweight cruisers, aimed very much at long-distance sailing. Built of multi chine steel, with a short doghouse on a semi-flush deck, and a transom-hung rudder, Ebbtides have been built with sloop or cutter rigs, and a larger rig was added as an option some years after the design was first introduced.

Ebbtide 33

The interior fitout of the example illustrated made extensive use of stainless steel, the saloon table, and the entire galley being finished in stainless steel sheeting, immensely practical but rather clinical. A more traditional timber interior would be more typical. There is a large vee-double berth in the forecabin, with heads compartment and a workbench, separating this from the saloon. Aft is the galley and chart table, with a deep quarter berth aft of the chart table.

The rudder blade is transom hung, making self-steering installation easy
