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 show signs of age. The August 2016 survey reported the lower decks are reparable and the flybridge deck needed to be partially removed and glassed over. In June 2017 the top flybridge deck was sanded and covered with a four-part urethane eleastic non-skid material known as Moby Deck. Jensen Marine in Seattle performed the application and the seller estimates that the lower decks would cost about $3800-$4200 to finish in the same manner. The asking price of this vessel is based upon this consideration.

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.

Decks are original teak. A recent survey found no signs of moisture intrusion, though there are some loose teak strips on the port foredeck and many missing bungs. The seller has recently addressed the flybridge deck with the professional application of Moby Deck, a four-part urethane elastic UV and weather resistant deck covering material.
