Home Yachts

The Buchanan Owners Association provides a forum for owners of the beautiful yachts designed by Alan Buchanan. We intend to organise an annual rally and build a worldwide register of Buchanan yachts still sailing. Members will have the opportunity to share knowledge and tips and generally talk about how wonderful their beloved yachts are.

Our aims

Our aim is to promote the ownership and appreciation of yachts designed by Alan Buchanan, not just in the UK, but all over the world.
