The Excalibur 36 is a powerful and fast all-weather cruiser. She is a very pretty boat, and very strongly built. This 1964 example has had the original engine replaced in around 2001, and had a complete new rig (mast, boom, kicker, furler, rigging wires) in 2010. The hull had a full osmosis treatment in 2012.
If you are looking at Nicholson 35s or Contessa 32s as fast traditional cruisers, look also at this design.

E. G. van de Stadt designed the Excalibur in 1962, the design looking very like an enlarged version of his already very successful Pionier designs for GRP production, which were early examples of cruising boats with separate spade rudders, at a time when most cruising yachts still had long keels with keel-hung rudders.
All the Excalibur hulls were moulded by Tylers, with encapsulated lead ballast, and a GRP headlining moulding. Hulls were finished mainly by Southern Ocean Shipyard in Poole, but some were also finished in Holland by various yards.
Despite being designed primarily as a cruiser, Excaliburs won the RORC Class II Championships in 1963, 1964 and 1965, but as racing designs evolved with more beam and smaller keels they ceased to be competitive, except in heavy weather.
They are now a good example of a classic cruiser-racer. Bigger and faster than a Contessa 32, and not dissimilar to a Nicholson 35, they are a very capable yacht for bluewater or coastal cruising.
