    Reluctant sale but Looking for QUICK SALE. Open to sensible offers for this one of a kind lovely yacht.


    Excalibur is a 40ft Thames Plywood yacht. Built in Bristol, she takes her design from the smaller McArthur 35. She is a solid proven long distance cruiser. Having been sailing in southern Brittany, Scotland and the canaries.

    Her double thickness hull is solid and seaworthy and the full length chines ensure she tracks true especially upwind. Capable of 180-200 miles a day she can eat the miles up and take bad weather in her stride. Her safe center cockpit isn’t paticurely large but happily accommodate up to 4 plus helm. With control lines easily to hand.

    In my 4 years of ownership she was a lovely liveaboard and have spent around £8k in updates including a new suite of raymarine instruments inc radar, AIS Transceiver and touchscreen plotter (2015)
    And fitting a mikuni 5kw diesel heater keeps the cold at bay.

    New wood under mast step 2016,
    New wood port aft deck 2017

    She has a cozy feel down below with plenty of storage. And will sleep 6 comfortably. 4 at sea with lee cloths in the saloon and the v-berth up forward.
    Alothough not as spacious as a modern 40 footer everything is to hand with plenty of grabholds and easy reach cupboards.
    Her large aft cabin is comfortable.

    The B.M.C 1500 35hp has been serviced annually. Runs fine and will easily motor at around 5.5kts
    But will need work along the lines of rubber work including hoses and lines. Parts for these engines are readily available and cheap to purchase. New custom Exhaust elbow fitted 2018.
