I mostly agree with John, much to my chagrin, you really don't need smaller sails on a 32 foot boat unless you are getting serious about single-handing in bad conditions. Also, on a 32 foot boat the mizzen boom will probably interfere substantially with the cockpit space. However, ketch's are IMHO way prettier boats...but the aries is a nice looking boat also... I guess I'd sail them both and see which you like more.

Hope that confuses you!
