    Very pretty little wooden classic, built on the Isle of Wight. The current owner has maintained her to a very high standard, and she presents very well, definitely not a project in any shape or form. She features four berths, good headroom and plenty of period charm.


    Build


    The Cheverton Crusader class was designed by David Cheverton in response to a request by a local Cowes dentist, David Ramsden who wanted a family cruising yacht that was larger than the little Caravel class.  He wanted two separate cabin areas of the boat and an enclosed heads compartment in order to give his family a comfortable cruising yacht.  The Crusader is exactly that, a comfortable boat capable of good passage times with a decent amount of internal space for extended periods aboard.  The high coachroof gives good headroom throughout and all 4 berths are 6’ or more and a decent width.

    The construction methods employed by David Cheverton meant his boats could be built on a small production line arrangement, reducing costs and speeding the time from order to delivery.  Strip plank construction is a quick and easy way of building a boat and the advent of epoxy glues meant it was strong and reliable as well.  Rather than sheathing the hulls as we do now, they were simply painted with a thin epoxy resin which soaked into the timber in order to protect it.  The other bonus of this construction is the lack of frames required so there is more internal space for any given dimensions compared to a conventionally built boat, so although the beam of the Crusader is not huge, every inch of it used so the saloon feels very spacious and comfortable.

    There were about 50 Crusaders built in total which makes her a very successful design and they have been proven over the years as super little cruising yachts.  This yacht has had a major refit in present ownership with virtually no expense spared, but unfortunately ill health has forced the owner to move away from sailing all together.  Every inch of this boat has been inspected with all major works carried out as necessary.  She is very clean, smart and tidy and has to be one of the best examples around of this nice little yachts.
