We are sad to report the demise of the Eventide Owners Association. The LOA has been in correspondence regularly with the EOA over the years and we “swap” magazines. The EOA also “looked after” all the YM designs such as the YM Senior, a boat very similar to the Lysander in many ways, certainly in concept.
So we have decided to “open our doors” to boats of a similar ilk to the Lysander that do not now have an owner’s association.
There is a precedent here. For instance Wilf Hodgkinson sailed with us many times in a boat that looked at first glance like a Lysander, but the hull was round bilged and had been made by Island Plastics on the IOW. Similarly Richard and Shirley Boardman, who are long term members of the LOA and regular attendees at meets, have a little 16ft plywood boat called Tenuviel which is in fact, an Estuary class DIY design.
- Designed in the UK in 1963 by Percy Blandford ARINA, for home construction using marine ply, hundreds of Lysanders have been built in the years since. Here you will find information about the Lysander, pictures, news, and articles. Click on the menu links above to learn more about the boat, and the owners association. The Association members have a wealth of experience building and repairing Lysanders. If you are considering building one, or have purchased one for repair, please join us.
