East Anglian
Year of build: 1960
Berths: 2


Built in the early 1960s, Tangent is a lovely example of an Alan Buchanan designed East Anglian wooden cruising yacht. With beautiful lines, when restored she’ll make a good family cruiser for up to four people and was also built to be raced competitively. East Anglians are always a welcome sight at classic regattas and these pretty craft have stood the test of time very well and continue to flourish
Fair examples fetch up to £10,000 with the best examples fetching up to £20,000.
Alan Buchanan
Alan Buchanan was one of Britain's most prolific and successful yacht designers. He designed 22 boats, including yachts that won the Admiral's Cup, Cowes Week, and the Fastnet Race. A naval architect and aeronautical engineer who worked as a draftsman on bombers and flying boats during the war, his reputation for exceptional design of fast, seaworthy and beautiful yachts was legendary.
Current condition
After having a number of long term owners who maintained and sailed in her regularly Tangent was left unattended for a few years. She’s mostly solid and sound and local marine surveyor, Toby Lester, reports she needs £3,000 to £4,000 of materials to bring up to scratch; main tasks are replacing current deck, replacing parts of the top 2 planks on the hull, some repairs to cabin sides and hatches and a few graving pieces on her interior. After that its mostly minor repairs, painting and varnishing.
The current owner has stabilised her and Tangent is now out of the water, cleared out, under good weatherproof covers and ready for work to start. The mast, rigging, sails, sail covers, fenders and stanchions have been removed and are in storage, to allow good access for her repairs. She comes with a full suit of sails, two anchors, and a diesel engine fitted in 2018.
Where she’s based
She’s based at Iron Wharf Boatyard, Faversham. Iron Wharf is a very friendly and helpful boatyard which actively encourages DIY boat restorations as well as having a range of professionals on site such as master boatbuilders, marine electricians, marine engineers and an on-site chandlery. Iron Wharf Boatyard is on Faversham creek which gives access to the Swale River, Thames Estuary and Medway in one direction and to the North Sea and English Channel in the other direction.
