I am going through my true first purchasing experience and would like to ask some opinion about a boat that I am looking at the moment.

May I please receive advice about 32' Ericson 1973?

Thank you in advance for your time and advice.

I like it. Fairly fast and good sailing characteristics, from what I have seen. I would just mention that you should be careful not to overpay for a boat of that vintage. It is a buyer's market and many folks are almost giving away similar boats. Can't claim to know what the market is for it, but I wouldn't offer too close to the asking price, especially if it has been listed for a while.
