"Aurelia" is a classic blue water cruiser of the highest ranking and would suit a couple, looking for an older boat that has a pedigree of design, build and performance. David Cooper of the famed English design firm Holman and Pye penned the design for a client seeking a fast but tough cruising boat that could be produced in a variety of versions. The Bowman 46, of which approximately 50 were built in the early 70’s, came with a choice of yawl or sloop rigs and centerboard or deep keel versions. Another variation on the design was an aft cockpit sloop rigged boat named the Bowman Corsair. Aurelia is a center cockpit, deep (7’) draft version with encapsulated lead keel and she is sloop rigged.

In a design review of classic cruisers published in February 2005, Yachting World had the following to say about the Bowman 46: “An undeniably elegant sheer line, subtle tumblehome, classic counter and a low aspect coachroof all add up to give her timeless appeal. What’s more is that she sails beautifully – her performance to windward particularly impressed us … close reaching in under 10 knots of breeze at 6 – 7 knots … for hours on end we could leave the wheel untouched as she sailed herself – always better than we could. Thanks to a fine entry and longish fin keel, her seakindliness added to her appeal. She eats up most short seas without being slowed … we set off from St Maarten into 35 knots true to windward. She rode nicely over the building sea… her downwind behavior was impeccable … she surfed easily down heavy seas during a following gale – so well balanced and always responsive to the helm.”
Aurelia’s owners have done many upgrades over their years of ownership, but realizing that their bluewater ambitions are over, are keen to pass her on to new owners who will use her for her intended role. Here is the opportunity to own a rare classic at an extremely reasonable price.

Motivated sellers have priced this boat to sell. Naturally, at this age and price, there is some work to be done, but she is not a boatyard ornament. The chainplates should be removed and inspected, there are some cosmetic improvements that could be made to the interior, and the canvas and sails may need attention, depending on the new owner's intended use. The boat has air-conditioning and heat so would make a great live-aboard. The age of the standing rigging is unknown and so replacement should be considered for any bluewater passages. 

This boat is being sold 'as is, where is'.  Buyers can survey the vessel.
