Engine: 2 x 55hp Volvo Diesel Engine :: Designer: William Osborne :: Builder: Osbornes of Littlehampton.

In the early 1960's William Osborne (junior) introduced a series of three hard chine motor cruisers, the Swift, Kestrel & Osprey. The Kestrel proved to be the most popular design being a medium sized vessel with a creditable performance when fitted with the twin engine option or an ideal cruiser with the single installation.

Osbornes need little introduction as one of the premier South Coast boat-builders situated in Rope Walk on the River Arun. William Osborne established the yard in Littlehampton in 1919 building a series of 20 knot power boats for the Sussex Motor Yacht Club. Building commissions for motor-yachts soon started to come in and the company grew considerably during the 1930's. Wartime work included the high speed Motor Torpedo Boats and Gun Boats. The company having built up a reputation for quality craft received orders from the RNLI to build lifeboats. Continuing also with the expanding range of motor cruisers they adopted the same high standard close seamed double diagonal mahogany construction with the cruisers as in the lifeboats. In the industry the company were known for their 'Osborne Finish'

Double Diagonal mahogany hull, with oiled calico between all copper fastened to oak frames and timbers. Varnished mahogany superstructure and laid decks. Laminated glass windows with anodised alloy frames.

Foreward Cabin: Two 'V' berths which convert to double.

Saloon: Settee berth to port, built in lockers and storage.

Galley: Situated the length of the starboard side of the main cabin. Two burner gas cooker with oven and grill, deep stainless-steel sink unit with h&c, 12 volt refrigerator with freezer compartment, agood amount of cupboard and lockers with work top over.

Cockpit to the stern with hard top and a canvas canopy at the rear. Port helm position with console and instrumentation, morse engine control, twin screen wipers, navigation lights, spotlight, horn, fully fused switch panel. Wheel steering with geared quadrant and rods to semi-balanced plate rudder.

240 volt shore power hook-up and power points to main cabin areas, two 12 volt batteries Calorifier providing domestic pressurised hot water. Gas fired warm air heating system. Automatic bildge pump Lighting throughout.

The Osborne Kestrel has always been an extremely popular river, estuary and sea-going motor-cruiser offering good accommodation and performance combined with 1960's style..
