The entrance into the vessel interior is via the door from the cockpit. To starboard is an L-shaped dinette that converts to double sleeping, To port is a single seat. Forward to starboard is a chest of drawers and the helm station. To port is the galley in which the counter and overhead cabinet storage have been modified to extend half the way aft into what would have been a full length settee. This modification provides additional galley storage and counter space. Forward and down to starboard is the head compartment with sink, shower and electric toilet. Forward is the double berth. All of the original woodwork appears well-kept as well as the parquet flooring. The new upholstery, color combinations, nicely varnished woodwork combine to present a very "proper classic yacht" interior. The next owners will feel that they are traveling in style. The cockpit and the fly-bridge have canvas and stainless steel frame covers. From the cockpit port side is the ladder to the upper helm and flybridge.

Broker's Comments

For those looking to own a one of the absolute definitive small trawlers, a classic Grand Banks 32, this boat is a must see. This woodie has had everything done that you would would expect to ensure that it is structurally and mechanically sound. She has been recently wooded out, the guards removed, planks replaced, re-fastened as needed, flybridge rebuilt, repainted and bright work varnished. In additional to its physical condition you will find this boat very well equipped with current upgrades. Be sure to view the video to confirm my written word. She has a full boat cover of very light material that lets it breath and helps to create a good environment for proper ventilation while protecting her from harsh conditions.

I learned years ago that it can be a real value opportunity to find a boat that has had recent yard work and new equipment installed because the seller spends much more in upgrades and restoration costs than will ever be recouped in the sale.

A price reduction can be made regarding the dinghy and the full boat cover should the next owner not be interested in these items.
