The West Sail 32 set the standard for the first generation of production cruising boats. Designed by Crealock, they were an extension of the famous Colin Archer Norwegian lifeboat design of the 1890s. A proven hull, they are heavily laid up with 24 layers of uni-directional cloth, encapsulated iron and lead ballast, robust scantlings, heavy bronze hardware, and (with the factory finished hulls) well executed hardwoods in the finish work. The deck is 1?2? marine ply sandwiched between two heavy built up layers of roving/glass. This particular vessel has been provided with numerous upgrades from the custom stainless steel bowsprit system, custom stern pulpit and boom kin system, newer wind vane self steering, and a newly rebuilt and re-installed Perkins engine. The performance of the West Sail 32 is varied ... but their performance at sea is proven over the years. They have excellent sea-keeping ability despite a somewhat wet ride ... but have earned a reputation for surviving the harshest conditions. This vessel has been outfitted for and has completed one round trip to the Hawaii Islands under a prior owner, solo.
