Freshwater Boat Fresh from a Factory Refit
RUBAIYAT has spent its life in Idaho and Michigan, sailing on freshwater lakes during the limited northern sailing season. After years of enjoying this vessel in the Great Lakes, and a short stint on the Gulf Coast of Florida, it became apparent to the current owners that they needed a larger boat to better accommodate their children and grand-children. For the new purchaser's peace of mind, the vessel was returned to Island Packet/Seaward Yachts for a complete inspection and detail inside and out. After speaking with the IP/SW designers and engineers, the owners agreed to refit the yacht with the improved retractable keel and winch to bring the yacht's underbody up to current 2018 model year standards. Very unique for a 2010 hull.
A new Raymarine AWI and a new pod at the helm with a hybrid touch Raymarine Chartplotter/GPS were also installed during the refit. Complete with an aluminum Magic Tilt trailer (new tires with less than 1800 miles), this yacht is ready to travel wherever your sense of adventure leads.
You must see this gem to appreciate the light use, low engine hours and outstanding condition that comes with indoor storage and northern fresh water sailing.
This shoal draft, lifting keel boat will take you to the most interesting places. Drawing only 1 foot 8 inches with the keel all the way up and 6 foot 6 inches when fully lowered, you can go from the beach to off soundings and anywhere in between.
She is ideal for the shoal draft waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Chesapeake Bay, the Intracoastal Waterway, or anywhere there is shallow water - Including your own dock.
Expand your sailing horizons by loading her on the trailer and heading somewhere fun. And bring her home when you aren't using her - why pay for storage? So many options available to the owner of this unique retractable keel cruiser!
"Rubaiyat" is on just her second owner and has been professionally maintained; a well organized owner's valise with owner's manuals for all key gear is aboard and included. The owner is selling her now as they are moving to a larger boat.
Some of Rubaiyat's many upgrades and features are as follows:
"Rubaiyat" currently sits on a trailer with all new tires which is included in the price of the boat.
If you are looking for a well-equipped, trailerable shoal draft boat that can take you to places most boats can't, don’t miss this opportunity.

The premise that lead us to build the first 32RK arose from our desire to have a boat that would suit the water geography of south Florida, where we have vast expanses of quietly beautiful, but extremely shallow water. Our premise became more complex when we also wanted our boat to take us comfortably and confidently across sixty or so miles of open ocean, across the Gulfstream to the Bahamas and Abacos. Once to the islands, shallow draft would again be an important plus. That thinking led us to the 32RK. The 32RK may be the perfect boat for sailors everywhere wanting to get out of the marked channel and into quieter and less traveled waters, but at the same time, don't want to give up the stability and confidence that a deep keeled boat offers when venturing offshore. She's a wonderful fast cruiser even more compelling when you consider the possibilities offered by the variable retracting keel and rudder. Draft range is between 20" and 6' 5", making it possible to walk to shore from your boat without getting your shorts wet. And with the keel down (there's a lead ballasted torpedo-style bulb at the keel's lower tip), you can go almost anywhere. The possibilities are endless.
Below decks, accommodations are comfortable and intelligently planned, whether for sleeping, sitting and reading, cooking or showering. There's room for four adults and their gear for vacation cruising. The cabin is bright and well ventilated, with eight opening ports and two deck hatches.
The master cabin is fwd with a v-berth and filler. Under the berth are storage drawers and to starboard is a hanging locker. There are fans and reading lights on either side.
The head is on the port side aft of the master cabin. There is a nice sized separate shower with a seat and an opening port for ventilation.
The saloon is very bright and airy with a large table to port and a convertible settee to stbd. To accommodate additional seating while dining, there is a extra seat which folds up when desired. The saloon table lowers to make a double berth.
The settee on the starboard side easily converts to 2 seats with a table in between. Outboard are 2 storage lockers and a handy shelf area for books.There is a flat screen TV outboard on the port side.
The galley is L-shaped and is located at the base of the companionway to stbd. Aft of the galley is open to a large storage area. More details on this below.
The nav is conveniently located at the base of the companionway on the port side. More details on this in the nav section below.
Aft of the nav area on the port side is a large quarter berth with a fan for extra ventilation.

The L- shaped galley is at the base of the companionway on the starboard side. Additional counterspace is provided when needed by a fold up counter extension. Storage is found outboard and under the sinks. Dish storage above the refrigerator.
The nav area is at the base of the companionway on the port side. There is a chart table with a seat that folds out of the way not needed. The chart table opens for storage and there is additional storage in a cupboard below that.
Yanmar diesel 29hp fresh water cooled engine with low hours. There is great access to the engine.
Seaward Yachts have a vertically retracting high aspect fin keel with a lead bulb. This provides exceptional windward performance and solid stability. There is an incredible shoal draft of only 20" inches and a deep draft of 6 '6" allowing you to maximize performance on all points of sail. The keel is lifted with an electric winch and controlled from the cockpit. The rudder can also be lifted vertically. With both the keel and the rudder lifted you can take to the beach and step ashore!
Rubaiyat has just been through a $20,000 factory refit for peace of mind to the new owner.

An added bonus - The Seaward 32RK is trailerable and the deck stepped mast can be raised and lowered without the assistance of a boatyard.
You can easily extend your sailing season, just load her on a trailer and head to wherever your sense of adventure takes you. Bring her home for the winter - why pay for storage? This Seaward 32 will give you and your family so many options!
