Back on the market after two seasons of excellent sailing on the West coast of Scotland, the owners, now with a bigger family, are selling to move up to a large motor sailer.
The Vancouver 32 comes from the board of Robert Harris and was a development from the highly successful Vancouver 27 design. The hull type combines the thinking behind the fast racing cruisers with the lines of the traditional ocean cruising yacht. The hull speed is much faster than would normally be expected. The wide beam at the water line combined with 3 tonnes of encapsulated ballast provides tremendous stability, with the long keel giving excellent directional stability.
Unquestionably built for the rigours of blue water sailing, she is also built with luxury and comfort in mind. There's masses of beautifully finished teak in the interior, comfortable seating and a thoughtfully arranged galley.

Through the companionway there is a well equipped galley to the portside and Nav station to starboard with storage and a single quarter berth aft.
The main salon has masses of comfortable seating and a large fold down table. The starboard side seating becomes a double with infill with a quarter berth opposite.
Forward again are the heads, more hanging space and storage, then the fore cabin with standard v berth.
Beautiful teak wood and finishings throughout.
The galley incorporates a two burner stove with grill and oven, a coolbox and stainless steel sink. There is a good amount of work surface with the section over the stove slotting neatly behind it.

We have a scanned copy of the original Vancouver 32 brochure and "walk through" description of the boat provided by the owner for those interested in more details. Please contact us to get them e-mailed through.

She was epoxy treated when new.
