Manufacturer Provided Description
The premise that lead us to build the first 32RK arose from our desire to have a boat that would suit the water geography of south Florida, where we have vast expanses of quietly beautiful, but extremely shallow water. Our premise became more complex when we also wanted our boat to take us comfortably and confidently across sixty or so miles of open ocean, across the Gulfstream to the Bahamas and Abacos. Once to the islands, shallow draft would again be an important plus. That thinking lead us to the 32RK. The 32RK may be the perfect boat for sailors everywhere wanting to get out of the marked channel and into quieter and less traveled waters, but at the same time, don?t want to give up the stability and confidence that a deep keeled boat offers when venturing offshore She?s a wonderful fast cruiser even more compelling when you consider the possibilities offered by the variable retracting keel and rudder. Draft range is between 20? and 6? 6?, making it possible to walk to shore from your boat without getting your shorts wet. And with the keel down (there?s a lead ballasted torpedo-style bulb at the keel?s lower tip), you can go almost anywhere. The possibilities are endless. For details on how the keel system functions, see our ?keel system? page on this website. Aside from its obvious versatility, the 32RK is a fine sailboat. She?s sized perfectly for two couples, or for a family with small children. Her cockpit is large and comfortable, side decks are wide and secure and she?s designed to be easily handled and sailed by one. Below decks, accommodations are comfortable and intelligently planned , whether for sleeping, sitting and reading, cooking or showering. There?s room for four adults and their gear for vacation cruising. The cabin is bright and well ventilated, with eight opening ports and two deck hatches. Like all true thoroughbreds, the 32RK always has performance potential in reserve, but is never demanding. It's a performance/cruiser at its best: total exhilaration when you want it, calm and steady when you don't. Just lower the foils a bit to dial in more stability, and more upwind performance, and draw them up when you want to get off the boat and stretch your legs on a deserted beach.
