Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

I may be biased but I agree that they are great looking boats. If you like the look and use them for what they are designed for you will not be disappointed. Rhodes made some great boats that have stood the test of time.

Naaaa - just have a 3 oz. 225% Gennie on board. It would be interesting to see what would happen if someone put a modern high SA/D rig on a boat like that. Adding 6 or 8 feet to the mast would probably perk things right up in light air.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

Hello All,
I was the proud owner of Chesapeake hull 55 1962 and sailed it to Mexico from San Francisco twice. Great boat with very few problems . I was once coming up the coast of California in 20+ foot sea in winter and the Chesapeake came through without any gear failures.
Because of its beauty she was in commercials for Penzoil,Topsider Rolls Royce, Sausalito Art Festival, and Crazy Shirts did there entire catalog on the Chesapeake 32. I sold it for $25,000.00 .I started sailing on her when I was ten years old and bought her for $18,000.00 when I was 16 years old.

Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

To my eye there is not an ugly line on that boat. This design is the specific design that made me determined to become a yacht designer. I wanted to design things that beautiful. Still trying.

Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

Hello Bob,
Thank you for your reply.
I guess we both have good taste in yacht design. That is quite the compliment coming from you to Phil Rhodes. I also enjoy your designs and have sailed on a CT 54 from California through the canal ,I deliver Reknow the Cheoy Lee to PV, sailed on many Tayanas one of which won the Oriental Cup in North Carolina. My favorite was the Valliant I raced one from the Sausalito Yacht Club.
Would you ever consider being a speaker for the Wednesday yachtsman luncheon at the Saint Francis YC?

Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

I purchased my Rhodes Chesapeake in 2009 and when i did I thought I made the biggest mistake of my life. After owning "modern cruisers" with fin keel, wheel steering etc. I found the vessel to be unmanageable with rough seas and higher winds. But something has happened over the years.... I've become a better sailor. She has taught me well in understanding how she works. As my other sailboats and with modern cruisers you just simply raise the sails and move. The Rhodes Chesapeake I have found can handle any conditions with ease. She trims beautifully.... I can have her balanced and sailing on her own while I read a book with my feet off the side in 20kt winds. She's pretty and fast. This boat was not built for creature comforts though you can squeeze a bit inside. She was built for sailing first. If you want a dock queen buy a Hunter or Beneteau..... If you want to sail, I mean really really sail buy the Chesapeake.

Re: Rhodes Chesapeake 32

I know of one Chesapeake 32 for sale that does have a modernish fractional rig. There is a 1964 Chesapeake 32 in Norwalk CT for sale, I would include the link but this site does not allow me until I have 10 posts. If you see one with a sail number of 165 this is my dad's old boat, he rebuilt everything on her in the late 80s-early 90s including replacing the original rotten wooden mast with an aluminum one, kept the same headstay length and raised the mast 6 ft while shortening the boom along with new decks, basically new interior, new engine and all systems. What a dream to sail in light/medium air. She had a little bit of weather helm as the breeze increased, but for summer in new England, you just reef early. I really miss the boat. I would have bought her back but I just recently bought a 40' Luders 27. Overall the Chesapeake 32 is a great small cruising boat.
