This Searider 32 has a sturdy looking hull and old plans on the boat suggest that she was designed as a Naval Motor Sailer. However she looks as if she was commissioned as Launch boat.
The shape of her hull indicates that she will have good sea keeping qualities and will be easy to manoeuvre.

The current owners have not conformed to the typical layout and I must say they have created an exceptionally good living space. A double bed is effectively in the cockpit, then down below decks is a comfortable saloon and galley. I was really impressed and feel that she is ideal for an individual or couple who would like to spend long periods of time on board.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
I really like the lines of this Searider 32, she has a real little ship feel to her. She even got a salute from the Navy when her owners were out on her during a Naval parade in the Medway. The coachroof has been modified to accommodate the owners wish to create a compact and practical livaboard. I think that the work has been done well. It may not be to Dutch fit out standards but it is really practical layout. The boat has been insulated throughout and felt very cosy indeed. She would suit an individual or couple wishing to spend time on board.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
