Aries 32

Is anybody familiar with this boat? From what I've been able to find by using google, it has the same hull as a roughwater 33 and a southern cross 31....Gilmer design.
I have not been able to find construction details, head room, number and lenght of berths etc.
Any help would be appreciated.

Aries 32

Hey there. Did you ever get more info on the Aries 32? I am also interested in this boat and there is one for sale in Santa Cruz, CA. I have some basic dimensions such as : LOA=31' 10", LWL=26', Beam=9'6", Draft=5', Displacement=15,000 lb, Ballast=5,000 lbs, Sail Area=470 SF. There are four berths: 2 in the forepeak and two in the main cabin. Don't know length of them. Head room just inside the cabin is 6'3".
If you do have more info on other aspects such as quality of the build, fittings, etc, etc, I would love to know more.
Good luck with your search.

You're right!

Hi guys...
Yes, the Aries 32 is the same hull as the Roughwater 33 and also the Southern Cross 31 and Westerley 32.

I own a Roughwater 32 built in 1980 buy the Chen Hwa company in Taiwan. (Roughwter built mostly powerboats, this is their only sailboat model).

The Thomas Gilmer hull is under them all and a great design. The fit and finish varies quite a lot, from early woodies under the Aries name to fiberglass under all the names. Some early Aries are 'doghouse' design and I believe some Aries and all the others are 'trunk cabins'.

Truly, Ira
