Pros:
Cons:

Boat is a good sailor although is somewhat underpowered with 13 hp Yanmar diesel. We found it necessary to replace all of the plexiglas windows (refiberglassing, etc.) and install all new ports due to a chronic water leaking problem. Other than the window leakage, the boat has been a good, solid vessel and great fun to sail.

Pros:
Cons:

Well designed boat. Very roomy for the size... 3 separate rooms. Fast boat for racing as long as you know how to handle it. Had to change propane fittings fo american standards. Had to insulate the fridge to save energy. Like all other boats the fridge is near the propane stove. Made over 5000 miles without any problems. I do not worry about the underpowered motor because I sail with it. Recommend it for a couple who want to cruise for a year or two in the bahamas or overseas as long as you make your passage in the proper time. Less maintenance than man boats because it has less wood to varnish and everything is functionnal aboard.

Pros: excellent accomodations, sails well, solidly built
Cons: none

I have owned my 1983 Attalia for five years and love the boat. For a 32' boat it has a good deal of room which is well laid-out. Infact most of the new 32' boats by Beneteau, Jeanneau, Catalina, etc. are laid-out in pretty much the same fashion. The Attalia has a roomy half-berth aft and a large V-berth with sliding privacy door. The boats has a center-line drop-leaf table which is very comfortable for up to 6 people. The nav station is also large and come with a forward facing seat. The head is aft on the starboard side with a wash basin and basic shower. The boat came with a very useable two-burner stove and oven which was converted to propane. My boat is the centerboard version, 3' 6" and 6' 6" with board up/down. This is great for Lake Erie sailing where the water can get shallow. The boat balances well under virtually all points of sail. I run a 150 Genny, a standard main which is not large, and a cruising spinnaker. The boat is fast on a beam reach and when running down wind but not as fast upwind. The boat has a PHRF rating of 156 which makes it quite competitive if you enjoy racing.The boat is very well constructed and looks almost new when polished up. After a lot of use over 20 years of service none of the hatches or windows leak The cockpit is not excessively large and more than six is a bit of a crowd. My boat has a Yanmar 2GM 13 hp engine and a two-blade GORI folding prop. The combination is more than adequate to push the boat at about 4.5 knots into 20-25 headwinds, or 5.5-6 knots in flat seas. The has a displacement of about 8,000 Ibs which is light for a 32' foot. This combined with the well designed GORI prop provides plenty of thrust even in reverse. Sailing Magazine, October 2002, did an accurate and thorough review of the boat which was quite favorable. A couple could comfortably cruise on the boat all summer and not feel cramped and two couples could easily cruise for weeks at a time. This the is perfect family boat which easy to sail single-handed if necessary. I have chartered the new Jeanneau 32 which is very similar in design to the Attalia. While the new Jeanneau has a larger aft cabin, the older Attalia has many nice features such tight sheeting angles, a convenient bridge deck, and a flat fore deck which makes walking easier when sailing in rough seas. The older Attalia and the new Jeanneau 32 are both excellent boats which will last and provide many years of safe and happy sailing. Enjoy!!

Pros:
Cons:

Can the Jeanneau Attalia 32 stand on it's keel with the help of legs so that it will not full over when the tide is out. In other words is the hull strong enough for it to stand on it's keel . The reason for this is where i moor is tidal.

Thanks
