Many of our used boats are backed up to a dock on land where you can climb aboard Mediterranean style, and we have boats all over in other marinas as well. We provide all types of sailboats from small trailerables to large blue water vessels. We sell sailing cruisers, racers and day sailors. We also sell interesting powerboats from picnic boats to cruisers.

32' Freedom Yachts 32
1984 US$ 39,900

Built by Freedom Yachts (TPI) and designed by Garry Hoyt, this boat has some spectacular features that should be noted.  First of all is how she sails.  Unlike many of today’s modern designs that round up when the wind wind gets stiff, this design digs in and sails beautifully and predictably up into those higher wind ranges which gives the people on board a great deal of confidence.  Secondly the quality of the boat is excellent and thirdly, she has a beautiful and functional interior that is found on larger boats.  As a matter of fact, the current owners moved up to larger vessel and while looking inside of the new boat they bought, a friend said, “don’t you already own one of these?”.  This boat has full standing headroom, a forward cabin and an aft cabin and a large main salon.  The aft cabin isn’t just a big quarter berth that is visible from the main cabin. It has a solid teak door for privacy and a hanging locker.  The head is also enclosed and private.  The dinette is very large and the table has a short pedestal so that it can be lowered to the seat level to make into another berth with filler cushions which makes a total sleeping accommodations for 7.  The aft cabin & V-Berth have new upholstery on the cushions and the V-Berth has additional padding added for comfort. There are many more upgrades the current owners have made to make it a better boat than when new with some nice accommodations and features such as an added hatch in.  A hatch was added in the galley area for better ventilation. Too many lines leading aft from mast to cockpit so double stacked deck organizers added & new Spinlock Clutches added for improved line handling. The alternator was upgraded and the charging systems make electrical power trouble free for even long cruises. The electrical wiring was redone, the holding tank size was increased and for beauty the exterior woodwork was finished and the cabin teak and holly sole refinished as well. In 2007 an epoxy water barrier coat was applied and then VC17. This boat is ready to go & needs little work except to reattach the gun mount spinnaker system if you wish to fly the kite.  Great condition.  Dinghy, outboard & mount not included.
