Re: List of Sailboats that you can BEACH...

I may have missed it but the Canadian company, Tanzer built a Dick Carter design swing keel boat about 10.5m I believe. I think Carter was also the designer of the earlier Southerlies.

I think Cornell has just bought a Garcia?

All the shoal draft Hartley ferros can be beached.

Some of the very best anchorages can only be accessed if you can go shallow enough:



With lifting/kick-up rudders, and only 18 inches draught,


Lets us get into some great spots:

Re: List of Sailboats that you can BEACH...

This may give some members hives but here is a landing checklist for boats made to do this sort do thing.

For beaches you haven't landed before, a checklist with the smaller boats say 30' bilge keeler. Most of these items came from my previous experiences (read mistakes). Like that time those two adorable girls were tubing who live just south of the figure eight island swing bridge and the distracted captain who didnt maintain his depth ... (oh that's another story). Anyway, FWIW --

Study charts
Study tide app and know where you are time-wise
Rig a reachable line on bow cleat
Reef shoes on, gloves on, swim googles on forehead
Study local boaters, particularly power boaters who beach more regularly
Drop and set stern anchor in 6' of water
Carefully slack stern rode
Continue dead ahead slow
Head in until only a couple feet under the keel
Kill forward momentum
Kill the engine
Hop out and
WALK in pulling from the bow line the rest of the way. It is hard to cause major damage towing a boat by hand.
Set at least a foot below high tide so you're sure to get off
Remember there are two different, average high tides daily
Align hull perpendicular to the "fall line"
Walk a 360 around the boat checking keel landings carefully
Keeping fingers and toes well clear
Check prop area and rudder landing carefully

You only have a couple minutes once the keels start to "tap" while you can still shove out to deeper water. After that you are lock in and are committed.

Set bow anchor or rock/tree bow line as needed.
Secure stern rode.

I'm new here, but I've been sailing and cruising for 40 years. Forgive me if I'm overstepping, but I've got to disagree with the statement above as WAY too much of a generalization.

I used to own a deep-draft, bluewater boat that I would never dream of beaching, but that has been sold and I'm discovering the joys of owning a shallow-draft gunkholer on the Chesapeake Bay thanks to the new-to-me Menger 19 catboat recently acquired. It's a classic, beamy, heavily built, New England-style catboat with a keel/centerboard, relatively shallow forefoot, 1'-10" total draft with the board up, and the prop well-protected in an aperture forward of the barn-door rudder. In short, it's a perfect example of a small cruising sailboat that is completely appropriate for beaching.

Whisker lives in a slip in the water all season with good ablative bottom paint on her, but I plan to pull her out on her trailer for the winter. Any wear to the bottom paint from beaching can easily be repaired while the boat is on the trailer.

Discovering the joys of beaching this summer has been a revelation. Shallow draft allows you to come close enough to scope out the beach well to determine whether it is indeed soft sand, and the relatively low stem and lack of bow pulpit and lifelines on a traditional catboat make it easy to hop ashore and clamber back aboard without even getting your ankles wet.

If you are in an appropriate boat cruising in an appropriate area, don't let a narrow viewpoint deprive you of the joys of beaching!

Re: List of Sailboats that you can BEACH...

My understanding is that many boats in Great Britain are beached with every change of the tide.....

Re: List of Sailboats that you can BEACH...

To the OP:

I think another option would be a nice day sailor with shallow draft. Since you are in West Florida area, check out the catboats made by Com-Pac Yachts.

They have several models (all with very shallow draft hulls) and one model would be good for a family outing (see link below for photos). It is a day sailor but has room for a porta potty to be down below.

They also make a very nice looking "cruiser" model "Horizon" that is designed to be a pocket cruiser for a couple, with bunks and head and gallery (mini) down below in a cabin).

I like the looks of these and think they would make for a nice family boat (if one has several small children in the cockpit).

Re: List of Sailboats that you can BEACH...

I posted a response in this discussion earlier, and recently came across another boat that can come up to the beach (you may find this close enough to be considered "beaching"). With the addition of some short "beaching legs" it may possibly be beached and "dried out" in a tidal area but I would check with the manufacturer to find out about possible damage to the lifting keel and rudders for this particular boat.

Seaward 46RK.
Price = $580K

I found it interesting. The lifting keel and rudders and ability to get into shoal waters looks appealing. It also has TWIN lifting rudders.

Here are a few other facts:

Draft = 2'5" to 7'
Displacement = 23,000 pounds
Keel = Vertically Retracting High Aspect Keel/Solid Lead Torpedo, Electrically Operated
Rudders = Vertically Retracting High Aspect Rudders (2)

Jimmy may own a Garcia, but he was sailing his Ovni 43 at the Annapolis Boat Show in October 2014.
