With its full keel, the bowsprit and cutter rigging, the Downeast 32 was designed as a long-range cruiser for two to four people, capable of crossing oceans in safety and comfort. You wouldn't go driving into a rugged wilderness with a Honda Accord and likewise, if you are cruising the world's oceans, you want a boat that can handle anything that comes your way.
One Downeaster 32 owner who sailed around the Alaska coast said, "With it's fine and solid design, my Downeaster 32 handled the largest headwinds and snottiest seas with ease."
The cutter rigging of the Downeaster 32 is an excellent sail plan when handling winds in excess of 25 knots. Down below, berths are wide allowing for comfortable sleeping while out at sea. The fuel and water tanks are below the floorboards creating more storage space.
This particular Downeaster 32 is as well-equipped as any sailboat out there. Not only are the sails relatively new and in great condition, but there is a NEW spare sail for each of the three main sails - the main, stay and jib. It has an EPIRB, a backup propane tank, a backup solar panel, an emergency water desalinator and much more to make sure that whatever happens out on the oceans, you are prepared.
This vessel appears in incredible condition. It be hard to find a sailboat of its age in such great condition. All the woodwork is varnished and shines. We're told everything on the boat works & sails are in outstanding condition. The owner does regular maintenance and bottom cleaning. The bilge is bone dry.
