The Weymouth 32 is a highly regarded classic motorcruiser, known for their excellent sea keeping and robust build. Although closely related to the Nelson 32 and 34, the Weymouth was a more modern hull designed as a cruising boat with a wider beam, offering much improved comfort aboard. Demelza has been lovingly restored by her current owner whilst retaining the charm and character of her original features wherever possible. She is presented in good condition with an exceptional inventory with many expensive but highly beneficial upgrades including Raymarine nav installation, professionally fully rebuilt engines, diesel heating, new canvas pack, upholstery and much more!

The current owner of Demelza had planned on extensive coastal and river cruising and undertook a very thorough refit to prepare her for this. Due to a change in circumstances these plans have now changed, allowing her next owner to benefit from these works. Her refit included thorough inspection and upgrading of the plumbing, wiring and electrical systems together with a new fridge, cooker, battery charger, hydraulic autopilot, electronics package, central heating system and cockpit enclosure. Much of her varnish was refinished, new upholstery fitted throughout and many, many other upgrades and improvements carried out. Most importantly, she was mechanically overhauled to a very high standard and should provide many years of reliable service.
