We don't often use superlatives to describe the boats we sell such as - excellent, the best or out of this world - but this is likely to be the finest GB32 ever available. She is number 865 of 869 built. A great advantage is that she has stainless all round deck rails instead of varnished teak saving much time on maintenance and has been meticulously upgraded and maintained . Owned by her engineer owner for 16 years.
Her condition both interior and exterior defies her age the interior is virtually like new. The upholstery is superbly crafted from Thomas Sanderson fabrics the seat squab covers are removable over similar square quilted main seats. Most of the joinery is solid teak. All additions, such as instrument consoles and control panels made during her life have been made in matching teak and any wiring is completely hidden. She is very economical and quiet at sea her heavy displacement being no problem into head seas. Very easily manoeuvred with the large rudder and bow thruster.
