Alan Pape - Curtis & Pape Boatyard
The Curtis & Pape boatyard built the Ebbtide 33 and 36 long keeled yachts at their yard in Looe, Cornwall. Alan Pape was responsible for many yacht designs, and whilst the Curtis & Pape yard manufactured a variety of wooden boats and later found favour with steel fabricated hulls, which were manufactured offsite and genrally fitted out at the curtis yard. Later Alan Pape designs in steel were manufactured by other companies local to Pape's premises, including Moravern Seacraft.
Probably best known of his designs are the Ebbtide 33 and Ebbtide 36, which were both long distance sailing yachts with solid steel hulls incorporating long, full-length keels and transom hung rudders for steadfast cruising. Because of their origins, several of the Curtis & Pape boats were fitted out to customer specification, making some yachts quite individual.
