Hull And Deck
Building materials, proven over a decade in the punishing SORC and World championship offshore racing brought a new definition to performance cursing. The new Endeavour 33 uses a one piece, hand-laminated hull, cored with Klegecell, a rigid closed-cell polyvinyl foam. Increased strength comes from the use of laminates composed of non-woven unidirectional rovings. Additional structural strength is enhanced by a one piece multi-axial steel reinforced fiberglass grid bonded to the hull, providing a stronger & rigid unit.
The hull is molded as a single unit of a combination of polyester resin and fiberglass woven roving and multidirectional chopped strand fiber (MCSF). The keel is molded integrally with the hull and all ballast is contained inside. The deck and cockpit, like the hull, are molded as a single unit of a combination of polyester resin and fiberglass woven roving and MCSF. Plywood coring is incorporated between layers of fiberglass in the cabin top, deck, seat, and cockpit sole areas to give additional stiffness. The non-skid finish is molded into the deck. The exterior finish is pigmented gelcoat molded onto the fiberglass. The boot and sheer stripe are sprayed on Imron in Standard Blue #24160.
The hull-to-deck joint is a 'flange' type, which during assembly, is liberally coated with a combination adhesive/sealant. The deck is then lowered onto the hull and fastened in place with stainless steel thru-bolts. The toe rail is then installed, bedded in a heavy layer of the same compound and secured in place.

Rudder and Steering
The rudder is molded as a single piece of solid high density foam with a protective skin of fiberglass and a gelcoat finish. The rudder post, molded integrally with the rudder, is solid stainless steel, which is welded to a steel blade in the interior of the rudder. Where the rudder post passes through the hull, water tightness is ensured by means of a stuffing box.
The pedestal steering system (24" Edson wheel) operates with stainless steel cables rotating a quadrant bolted and keyed to the rudder post. The quadrant can be accessed via a removable locker drop box in the aft lazarette. The emergency steering rudder is stored under the port settee and is inserted into a deck flange behind the steering wheel post if needed.

All ballast is internally mounted inside the keel, which is molded integrally with the hull. Cast pieces of lead are place in the hull, encapsulated in a polyester bonding resin, and then covered with a layer of woven roving to form a fiberglass cap. When finished, the ballast becomes a structural part of the hull.

The interior of the Endeavour 33 is a molded fiberglass unit with teak bulkheads and cabinetry fastened to it with screws, bolts, and adhesives. The entire unit is preassembled outside the boat and then placed inside a hull with ballast and engine already in place. It is bonded in place with woven roving and mat, that when completed, forms a single unit structure having great strength and rigidity.
The interior with 6'2" headroom is finished with varnished teak with soft white overheads. The removable cabin sole is teak with holly inlays. The interior layout is typical with a V-berth forward, the head (to port) and wet and dry lockers (starboard) divide it from the main salon area which has a fold-up teak dining table. The L shaped port side settee re-arranges with a removable back to create a double berth. The settee starboard is a single. Aft and to port is a pilot double berth and to starboard is the galley which originally came with an icebox and either a gimbaled 3-burner alcohol or gas stove with oven. The Lorco Marine electrical panel is located portside next to the navigation station. The stairs remove to allow access to the engine which has some access also from the cockpit starboard locker.
There are 10 opening Lexan ports (Beckson) with screens and two large Atkins-Hoyle deck hatches (strong drop forged aluminum with 3/4" Lexan), one each over the v-berth and salon area. Early model boats had 6 opening and 4 large fixed ports.

 This Endeavour 33 comes with fresh water cooled Yanmar diesel auxiliarie--the 3GMF (3-cyl, 22.5hp @3,600rpm) with a 2.61 geared transmission.
The propeller shaft is made of 1" stainless steel and exits the hull through a stuffing box. It is supported at the inboard, or engine end, by the shaft coupling, and at the aft end by a cutless bearing in a cast bronze strut.
The propeller is a 16" 2-blade prop although a 3-blade was an option.
The exhaust system utilizes the Vernalift Marine muffler. In Yanmar engines, the raw water pump draws water through the engine intake port, circulates it through the engine block (or around it through a heat exchanger for FW cooled), and then into the muffler. The water is mixed with the exhaust gases in the muffler and discharged overboard through the exhaust port.

Broker's Comments
E33 performs well when close to the wind, regularly as close as 45° in a breeze, less so in lighter air. To maximize light air performance a 150% roller furling genoa is common. The E33 is easily sail balanced when sailing up or down wind and can easily achieve 7 knots when conditions are right. One admirable characteristic of the E33 is that the hull almost never pounds in a seaway and the boat can be easily handled by a small crew, even single-handed. It's a simple, forgiving, well balanced cruising boat. Its a rare event to put the toe rail in the water which helps keep the crew comfortable..
"Island Song" is a great boat. Like any boat of her vintage there is always work to be done. She does need a new bottom job and the cutlass bearing needs to be replaced and aligned. All the other work will depend on what the new skipper wants her to be in her next life. She is ready for a new adventure and is a good value at the listing price.
