De la plume d’Alan Pape est sorti des chantiers de Lowestoft Yachts (côte Est d’Angleterre). Pas de passe-coque sous la ligne de flotaison. C’est un Cotter de croisière sans compromis, ni à la sécurité ni au confort.

Designed by Alan Pape and constructed at Lowestoft Yachts in steel with shoal draft long keel and Hydro-Dynamic Bilge Keels. All three keels are of equel length allowing the boat to « dry out » up-right. Pilot house windows are toughened laminated glass. Chines are tube welded (not but joined). No underwater inlets or outlets. A quality of conception and construction that needs to be seen to be appreciated.

Broker's Comments

Boatshed Midi Canals is pleased to offer this Alan Pape cruising yacht for sale. A classic styled, 37 foot steel cruising yacht by Alan Pape. With no underwater inlets or outlets and simple belt and braces quality built in from the start this is a very reassuring vessel.
Designed as a no-compromise extended passage maker, after a very short time on board I got the feeling that this 37 foot Alan Pape cruising yacht was a bullet proof vessel. By the time I left I thought bomb proof might be nearer the mark. But the owners have been very careful to ensure that they enjoy their adventures and all their creature comforts have been included with light, bright, airy accommodation, sensible heating and cooking facilities and all beautifully finished and maintained.
Login and take a look at the photos and videos, here’s proof that simplicity does not have to rhyme with austerity and you can face the seven seas with a relaxed smile.

Un voilier classique d’Alan Pape conçu pour voyager . Pas de passe-coque sous la ligne de flotaison. Verre de sécurité feuilleté. Conception et construction sérieuse, entretien minutieux. Simple mais confortable. Pas facile d’allier la simplicité sans frôler l’austerité mais ici c’est un art. Regardez les photos et vidéos et partez l’esprit tranquil.
