TOSCA 36 sailboat for sale
SORRY, NOW SOLD!
The Tosca was designed by Angelo Lavranos as a cruising boat - built of fibreglass in Cape Town - to withstand South African waters.
She will start sailing slowly in about 4 knots of wind and the worst South African frontal winds we encountered registered 70 knots very briefly.
We bought Lady-U
in 1995 in Durban. We became live-aboards in 2000 and sailed from South Africa for the last time in 2004. Since then we cruised across the Indian Ocean, finally making our way to S.E.Asia - that wonderful area of cheap cruising and plentiful anchorages.
Now old-age and ill-health are forcing us to give up our beloved home and lifestyle - we will have to become land lubbers again.
The Tosca is a sloop-rigged, centre cockpit, monohull. She is beamy and very spacious inside.
The fore cabin has a V-berth 2 metres wide.
Heads compartment is light and airy.
Saloon has comfortable seating for 7 people with a table (with fold down flaps) in the middle.
Nav station on starboard side and galley on port side.
The aft cabin is accessed from the cockpit. It is airy with a double berth to port side and a hand basin and small sofa on starboard side.
There are lots of cupboards, drawers and lockers in the front, middle and back for storage. When we left South Africa, we packed about 2 years worth of non-perishable groceries on board.
The cockpit is lovely and has lots of seating and fabulous lazerettes. The doghouse (solid dodger) was added in 1998. It has an opening windscreen to let the breeze come through the cockpit. There is a Sunbrella sun-cover over the back portion of the cockpit to keep us shady and cool in this very sunny climate, also to keep us dry in the rainy season.
