Lightbulb 1983 Ontario 32 by C&C Yachts - For Sale.

I am looking for thoughts on the Ontario 32. From what I have read, this is a run of about 180 boats designed by C&C that have reached a near cult gathering for Bahamas cruisers.

I wanted to know a reasonable price to pay for one that at one time was meticulously loved and cared for, but for the last 5-7 years of its life has been left quietly deteriorating at the dock while the owners were busy with life. The owner still passionately loves this boat, but is willing to let it go to me.

Needs work (mainly cleaning, replacing running rigging, new canvas, etc) but SO much potential. It has a new engine, that is yet to be hooked up, resting in place.

Ultimately, I am looking for a solid boat to invest in and at the end of my journey with it hopefully turn a small profit. I have done this several times in the past, but with considerable smaller boats. 19'-25' range.

Any thoughts?!

Without pictures, a list of equipment and what needs to be done its hard to say.
I would hire a surveyor to go over the boat.
Check out yachtworld and any site you can find selling similar boats and do the math.

My wife just did a passage on one. This is a big log, but it's full of stuff you'll want to know about the Ontario 32.

Personally, I love mine. After 3 years of research and looking, it was my first choice.

Yes, there are things not to like about it, as there is with any boat. But the positives far outweigh the negatives for me.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

My two main beefs are I wish the beam carried back further and that the chainplates where inboard. Stock engine could have had a bit more hp as well.

On the plus side, it's easy to singlehand, points well (with a 4'6" modified fin) and 6'4" headroom throughout. Good storage, ICW friendly mast height and access to systems as well.

Been watching O32 pricing since '98. Prices range from mid 20's to low 50's. The prices have steadily gone up over that period

Re: 1983 Ontario 32 by C&C Yachts - For Sale.

During my time looking back mid 2000, the Great Lakes boats were always significantly higher priced than those outside of the area.

Makes sense- Freshwater boats stored for half the year on the hard will see less wear and more maintenance than a saltwater boat in the water year round.
