The Excalibur was the larger polyester sistership of the famous Pionier. Despite being designed primarily as a long-distance cruiser by 'Ricus' E.G. Van der Stadt in 1962, the Excalibur also enjoyed a succesful racing career, winning the RORC Class II Championships in 1963, 1964 and 1965. Excaliburs are noted to be good in any condition, not specifically in one or a few. They are light and positive on the helm, even in heavy following seas and strong wind conditions, squirting downwind to beating close hauled. Moulded by the Tyler Boat Co. Ltd in Tonbridge under Lloyd's 100 A1 supervision, this GRP design proved to be immensely strong, and particularly harmonious in shape and interior lay out.
I bought 'Braveheart' in the winter of 2011/ 2012, and as I realy started working on her in the summer of 2013, I soon came to the conclusion that I best restore her and re-fit her completely to my own standards, influenced by some modern knowledge and technologies. And of course the work took a lot longer than expected.
Today I have come a long way. She now sails with all new deck gear, mast and rigging, Crusader Sails "Hydranet" Sails, as good as new 30HP Yanmar engine with low hours etc. etc., and I have planned to finish her interior by spring 2016.
The goal was to completely fit her out to be Safe, Fast, Comfortable, yet Simple and Practical in lay out and fittings in order to succesfully sail around the world via the capes. And in fact I have almost everything available and/ or in place to do so.... like the famous and fine engineered SAILOMAT 3040-M self steering system. But 'life is what happens to you while you are planning for other things'. And due to my family circumstances and the purchase of a charter sail yacht, we opted to offer her for sale.
So the state 'Braveheart' is in now is an advanced, but unfinished state! The new interior is already mostly pre-fabricated by a ships carpenter yet needs to still be put together in the main cabin, galley area and chart table. So therefore the price is set low accordingly, so someone can take over the helm and finish her to his or her own wishes. I am able to help with that, if so desired, as I have plenty of experience in the yacht building industry, some project leading, and of course know 'Braveheart' in and out!
Hull, decking and superstructure are made of GRP with a encapsulated lead ballast keel. The whole moulded as one piece without keel bolts etc.. By todays standards Excalibur is over-built and osmoses is hardly ever noticed on Excaliburs!
