Mark Cameron Yachts is delighted to have been appointed to act in the sale of the Excalibur 36 ‘INO’.
Designed by E.G. Van De Stadt the Excalibur 36 mouldings were made by Tylers with the majority fitted out in Poole by Southern Ocean Shipyards. The Excalibur 36 had a successful racing record in the 1960’s, winning the RORC Class II on three occasions. The design has proven itself as an very capable offshore cruiser held in high regards along side designs of the same vintage from the likes of Nicholson and Jeremy Rogers.
INO was ordered by a very well known racing owner and features a shorter keel. She was based in Holland for many years where her interior was completely renewed in the early 2000’s. She is offered with a comprehensive inventory which includes:
Perkins Perama M30 29hp marine diesel engine.
Bronze folding 3 blade propeller.
Sailamat windvane self-steering system.
Autohelm ST4000 tiller pilot.
Deck mounted solar panel
B&G T8 MFD operating as a plotter, depth and log instruments.
Tack Tick wind instrument
Furuno Radar and GPS
2018 Sanders Sails Roller Reefing Genoa
2010 slab reefing mainsail
A very well appointed and presented example of the Excalibur 36; a classic GRP cruiser. INO would be the ideal boat for shorthanded or single-handed offshore cruising.
We bought INO in Holland in 2014. She had been with her previous owner for about 25 years and in that time he had completely stripped and refitted the interior (we have the photos). We sailed her back to the West Coast of Scotland in summer 2014 and have predominantly sailed her in this area other than summer 2018/2019 when we made a trip to NW Spain. She’s a great seaboat and very good to windward, as was demonstrated by our first Biscay crossing, averaging >150 miles/day on the wind in F4-7.
The last owner renamed her INO, so we don’t know her original name. However, she was built for Rodney Hill, a very competitive yachtsman in the 60’s and 70’s. She may have been the first ‘short keel’ Excalibur made, and her original interior was stripped out. According to the last owner she won her class in the Fastnet race but we have no evidence of this. What we do know is that shes a special sailing boat.
