Vancouver - 32

Sailing BoatsVancouverModel 32United Kingdom

Remarks :
Conceived as a bigger sister for the widely acclaimed Vancouver 27, this 32ft Robert Harris design is intended as nothing less than a pure cruiser - immensely strong, easy on her crew, quite fast, and above all capable, if necessary, of staying at sea in severe weather. The cutter configuration enables sail changes to be made easily and in heavy weather, she is very comfortable under staysail and reefed mainsail. The interior accommodation is conventional with V berths forward with double berth infill, large heads, dinette in the saloon, and a large chart area aft with quarter berth. The galley is practical for use at sea with good stowages and hand-holds. Lying Conwy Marina.

Accommodation :
