Construction GRP
Underwater profile semi-displacement
Finish Gelcoat finish

Solid fiberglass full displacement construction with teak overlay on cockpit, side decks, foredeck and flybridge deck. Lots of canvas done by Barrett Enclosures within the last few years keeps the boat well protected. There is even a second bridge cover as a spare. The aft side window frames in the house have been rebuilt by Jensen Marine, Starboard side in 2016 and port side earlier.
The teak decks on this boat need some attention. The surveyor this past August stated the lower decks are reparable and the flybridge teak needs partially removed and glassed over. As a result the seller is willing to consider discounted purchase price offers based on this condition. The survey in August was done by a very well respected surveyor here in Seattle. He valued the boat in it's current condition 20% higher than the seller is willing to accept as a selling price for the boat.

Broker's Comments

A distinctive and classy small trawler in every way a Grand Banks. She's a capable and sought-after Northwest cruiser. One of the early fiberglass 32s, this one has been lovingly cared for and kept in fresh water by her current owner for over two decades.

The seller reports the fuel tanks have been kept filled to make sure they are full during the winter months as has been his custom since purchasing the boat 25 years ago.

The teak decks on this vessel are showing signs of needing to be repaired or removed. We have a contractor's bid to accomplish that task which we believe is very reasonable.

These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
