Find below a description of the Tosca 36 by Angelo Lavranos.
The wetted surface area of the Tosca 36 to DWL, including keel & rudder is 39 sq meters. Please find attached drawings and dimensions. She was written up twice in SA Yachting Magazine, July 1979 and more briefly in May 1987, in case you know somebody with old back numbers, although the information I have given you is everything factual that appeared in the articles.
The Tosca 36was designed in 1978, the first one launching around 1979. Fourty have been built, most by Fred Scholtz Marine/Tosca Marine in Cape Town. Many were sold as hull & deck units for owner completion, so the standard of finish varies a lot. Some were overequipped (bigger engines, more tankage). A couple had the decks raised (without my agreement).
Four or five were built (out of a second mould), under license from Tosca Marine, by Z Craft at Empangeni, in KwaZulu Natal. I know of at least two having circumnavigated, and many others have gone distance cruising. In later years a "scoop" platform stern was added to the mould, making her a nominal 39 ft.
Some of the later ones have a slightly larger rig. I would characterise the boat as a medium /light cruiser with excellent sailing characteristics in a breeze, particularly tradewind reaching. Conversely the firm sections carry a wetted surface penalty, and being a light boat the rig is of moderate size, making the boat slightly "sticky" in light airs.
I have an IOR rating certificate off the protoype giving a rating of 26.3 ft. This is close to the Old One Ton rating of 27.5 ft. I expect her to sail better than her rating in good breezes (15 knots +) from a fetch to a run. In light airs and hard on the wind the old One Tonners would beat her.
The boat is viceless and pleasant to sail, and they have turned in good passage times. The spaces are good and the boat is well liked by the owners. Please find attached some drawings & details.
