Blue Water Cruiser! Ready to go!
It may only be 32 feet but this is one tough boat. Full keel provides true blue water capability.
This is a ferro-cement boat which was made popular in the 1960's as an alternative to existing building methods. Many were amateur built which damaged the reputation of this building method. When built by a competent builder, they can be a strong and reliable sailboat. They will never be a race winner but they were not meant to be. Unless, of course, you are racing other c-mists.
Perkins M 35 was installed new in 1995 and has been professionally maintained ever since.
Here is a better description from the seller.
.This is a moderate to heavy displacement double ended cutter able to cruise the world in safety and comfort. Designed after the renouned Colin Archer North Sea lifeboats. It is very close in design and specs to the Westsail 32 but with a taller rig for better performance. The boat sails very well in most conditions, placing third in the 2000 Antigua Regatta (Cruising class.) Always a kindly sea motion, never pounding in any condition. It is powered by a single 35hp Perkins diesel, M-35, that was installed new in 1995 and has been professionally maintained. The engine still performs like new, does not use any oil and is always easy to start. The transmission was replaced in 1999 with a new 3 to 1 ratio Hurth gear box with cooler. The prop is a 1315 bronze three blade. The sails are Tanbark and in good condition. The roller furling gear is a Profurl NC42, the staysail is self tending and is very handy when the wind increases reefing the main to the 2nd position, no lines to handle when tacking. There is a set of storm sails, never used, trysail and storm jib. The boat is also equipped with Garhauer running backstays. Also, there is 90% Yankee jib, (white Dacron,) and a 3/4 oz. Drifter that works very well in light air conditions. The halyard winches are self tailing and located at the mast. The boat went through a near complete refit while in Trinidad, was completely sand blasted and recoated with 5 coats of West system epoxy and sealer. The decks were sanded to bare wood and sealed with West Systems epoxy and sealed and painted with 2 part Sikkens Hi-Wave urethane paint in 1999/2000. The bow and stern pulpits are double rail with the stern rails extending past the cockpit, very handy in a seaway. The Aries windvane can be controlled by either the wind paddle or connected to a tiller pilot, which works very well when winds are fluky. There is a Navico TP-5500 included that needs repair (with remote.) There is also a trim tab on the rudder that enables you to remove weather helm in windy conditions. The ground tackle consist of a 35lb. Suncor plow (CQR)on 150ft. of 5/8 nylon rode with 30ft. of 5/16 HT chain. A 45 Suncor plow on 175ft. of 5/16 HT chain and a 30lb. Danforth type anchor. The windless is chrome bronze manual 2 speed and works very well. The rode feeds into the below deck lockers. Below there is a 2 burner Seaward stove, LPG, with oven and broiler. There is a Firce 10 Grill on the stern pulpit. There is a Fridgiboat refrigerator, similar to the Adler Barbour Cold Machine, that works very well, will make ice cubes. The 2-80 watt solar panels that swivel and rotate keep the batteries charged.The capacity of the fridge is 100qts. and has 3-4 inches of insulation all around. The interior cushions recovered in 1999 and have 5 inch HD foam, like new. The trim is solid mahagony with solid wood sole (Canary wood and ash.) The forepeak is very spacious and comfortable, almost queen size. There is chart storage under the side decks in the main salon and forepeak. Plenty of storage throughout the boat. The head is a Groco model KH and works well. There is a 12 gallon holding tank and deck pump out.
