Broker's Comments

The Sovereign 32 is the kind of yacht that was designed in the days when an encapsulated lead keel, sea berths for the crew, and a sheltered cockpit for when times got tough counted for more than double beds and bathrooms. This yacht is soundly built and very well equipped for her age, as her owner has continually updated and treated her - radar, winches, new running rigging, in mast mainsail - the list goes on and on. If you are looking for a serious coastal and offshore cruiser come and have a look. I doubt that you'll be disappointed. Old fashioned she might be, and perhaps not as swanky as some lightweight French and German products, but I know what I'd rather be crossing the Channel or Irish Sea in!
