About this Coaster Passagemaker 33


The Coaster 33 is a substantial canoe-sterned motorsailer on an MFV style hull, with wide, safe decks and substantial gunnels, highly praised when launched for their quality of build and performance under both sail and power. Considered great alternatives to a Nauticat 33 or Fisher 34, 'Osprey' is a very rare Passagemaker, offering a secondary tiller helm for an improved sailing experience and superior exterior space thanks to their aft cockpit layout. Presented in excellent condition for her age and benefitting from a recent Beta 50hp engine and tan cruising sails she would be ideal for long-term cruising, and could even be used as a very economic displacement motor cruiser, ideal for coastal and river exploration!

The Coaster 33 Passagemaker accommodation offers up to 7 berths in 3 cabins and is attractively finished with rich hardwood linings and furniture, blue upholstery, and offers good standing headroom throughout (approx. 6'2" max).

GALLEY:  The dual-sided linear galley is equipped with a Flavel Vanessa two burner gas cooker with grill and oven, stainless steel sink, top opening fridge, lots of storage in a range of drawers, cupboards, and lockers, and excellent worktop space for food preparation.

QUARTER BERTHS:  Either side of the passageway are two generous quarter berths, ideal for passage making or providing occasional berths. They can also be used to provide significant amounts of additional storage, ideal for bulkier items, or could be further adapted to house a freezer or other equipment. 

WHEELHOUSE SALOON:  The saloon is laid out with a well-equipped helm position forward to port with space for chartwork, ahead of a U-shaped seating area (converts to a double berth) and table with folding leaves. A further small settee berth and storage areas are to starboard, and all-round windows and a large roof hatch provide superb levels of natural light and ventilation.
