Alan Pape 35

Broker Remarks

This 1980 Alan Pape 35 "Morvoren" is a "one off 3/4 tonner" designed and built by well know yacht designer Alan Pape for his own use and as a result was extremely well built. She competed successfully in many regattas along the Devon and Cornwall coasts in the 1980s and 90s. She comes with a Beta 20HP diesel engine with only 20 engine hours approx.. Her inventory includes, tiller steering, seven berths, slab reefing mainsail, furling fore-stay, two head sails, spinnaker and more. Her marine plywood deck was replaced in 2017 which was epoxied underneath and glassed on top. 2017 Survey!

General Description

'Morvoren' This one off fast sailing yacht was designed and built by well know yacht designer Alan Pape for his own use and so it was extremely well built.

Built in 1980 to the then 3/4 ton I.O.R. Rule 'Morvoren' competed successfully in many regattas along the Devon and Cornwall coasts in the 80s and 90s. 
Even though she has raced successfully, she has plenty accommodation for comfortable cruising - one double and five single berths.
'Morvoren' has been out of use for the past ten years but has been revamped and fitted with an almost new 20 H.P Beta Marine Diesel engine. She was sailing in 2017 and was then hauled out for the winter.


GRP Hull

Marine plywood deck replaced in 2017. This was epoxied on both sides and glassed over on deck. The coachroof and deck are watertight and there is some ongoing work being done at the forward end of the cockpit.

The fin keel (lead) was re-bedded recently and a number of the keel bolts were replaced at the same time.

Broker's Comments

"Morvoren" is a classic yacht, built primarily for racing but would also make a comfortable cruising yacht. She does have back-stay runners but she also has sweptback spreaders which might mean that she could be sailed without the runners in lighter airs. The boat was laid up for about 10 years. The present owner bought her about three years ago. He has spent a lot of time refurbishing her and there is still a bit to be done. Her lines are eye catching and as we say in the trade, "She has loads of potential"
