Built for Pacific Coast yachting, the California 32 has the reputation of being a formidable racer and a comfortable cruiser - designed by Nicholas S. Potter, AKA the "Herreshoff of the West". Eight of these sloops were built between the mid 1930s and the mid 60s.

The California 32 was often a cover girl in the US West Coast yachting press. CHOLITA, ALTAMAR, TEMPEST, ESCAPADE and AMORITA were built before World War II. They were succeeded post war by ATORRANTE and ANDALE – then finally PEGASO in 1965.

The first seven California 32s won 14 out of 16 “Sir Thomas Lipton Cups” from 1948 to 1964 and subsequently dominated most other West Coast races.

AMORITA has been sympathetically restored and successfully raced on the classic Med circuit – so far ahead of her 1930s timeline, this is a design that can be easily raced by a family crew and also cruised as her designer intended. She is in our view one of very few yachts from this period that appears to be sailing at 10 knots tied to the dock! Fast and furious to sail it is only if you study all her original detail and gorgeous simplicity along with her purity of line, the game is given away - vintage yacht designed before World War II.
