Ebbtide 36

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 some later boats had a slightly taller rig.
