Rare Sailboat 1971 Tradewind 32

I bought a 37 Islander MS in October, 2012 and Refitting it.

I needed a sailboat trailer and bought the trailer with boat (32 ft. Tradewind).

Sailboat Information:

1971 Tradewind Yard, 32 ft.

Long Beach. CA

Hull # CFZ19KA100

LOA 32' 0" << The Boat Title say's >> 31" 6"
Beam 9' 10"
Draft 5' 10"

The Tradewind 32 Boat Wt. is: 13,500 < I thought that was a lot of Weight for a 32 footer, it weighs nearly as much as my Islander 37 MS (14,000 pounds).

I understand that only (7) if these boats were made.

I'd like to Know More Information about it but have Found Nothing during my internet searches. I do not have the boat home yet and look forward to Examining it completely when it's picked up in 2 weeks. The 1970 Islander 37 will take some work but should be within my schedule to be sailing by the end of (NLT) May. Also, I'm in the process of having a -- (84 L x 46 Wx 20 H) building built to house both sailboats & Four Winns 23 Liberator and other shop equipment and other toys.

The 32 ft. Tradewind (custom built for owner) is in decent shape [ per walk around (hull wise) ] and Not that bad inside. It was Spec'd. Out with Very Nice Equipment in 1971. I'm thinking that with only 7 made.... it may have been built from someone's else's molds and then the company folded << just guessing.

The 1971 Tradewind 32 comes with 5 Sails, Jiffy Reefing for main sail and all sails are in good (like new) condition. The anchors are gone and this was the same deal when I got my 37 Islander. All the other gear is there with a newly rebuilt 37 HP Westerbeke 4-107 Diesel. I see a lot of work to do inside (not gutted) but the the major items (sails, rigging, motor, trans., hull) appear A OK.

Anyway, I did Not give a Penny $$ for it. I can use a lot of the items (oven stove, pumps, etc.) inside & some outside items (winches, misc. rigging, etc.) for my 37 Islander (if needed). If too much of a Project.. I'll Scrap It Out. However, I think it's a Keeper but will Not know for sure until I get it home. I'm transferring the 37 Islander to the lowboy boat trailer and the the 32 Ft. Tradewind to stands inside the building (if it's a keeper).

So, Long Story Short for Getting Information.... Please Let me Know what's
Known about the -- 1971 Tradewind, 32 Ft., built at Long Beach, CA by -- Tradewind Yard << I hope my information is correct, got it from the seller.

Fixed your title for you.

TRADEWINDS is associated with Islander, if it's the same outfit. When you say it's a keeper do you intend to sell the 37 or keep both?

Re: Rare Sailboat 1971 Tradewind 32

Denise's 2nd drawing posted is the Perry design that post-dates 1971 by a decade or so. The first is the McGlasson I-32 that may have been called a 'tradewinds' at some point.

Buy this Talbert glass/boathauler trailer ; get the boat for free ! in Trailers | eBay Motors

I have posted the Ebay Link and you can look at the pictures of the Tradewind 32 and all the data the Seller provided.

Note: He never had a " S " at the end of - Tradewind << No S. Also, the boat was not made at the Islander location, was made at Long Beach, CA. The listed Manuf. is Tradewind Yard << Not Yachts. My I-37 Listing is Islander Yachts, or at another time... could have been Tradewinds Yachts. I'm Not so sure it's a Sailboat fron the Islander or Tradwinds House. It may be from an upstart that bought some molds from Islander or Tradewinds... but I'm not sure... just guessing. I will say, the lines of the Tradewind 32 is similar to the I-37 hull design. The Prop. is mounted higher up then my I 37.

I was asked if I was going to keep both boats, and I'm not sure of what I will do with the I-37 or T-32.

I just got rid of some older CAT equipment in PA (scrapped steel) and I'm in mourning. The CAT's were a - D-8 (1955) and 977 Loader (1964). This CAT D-8 was the same dozer that built America and needed a few things but not a junker. I never should have scrapped them, should have tried to sell them as working machines. These CAT's... were real deal earth movers, were more than hunks of iron (to me). However, I'm selling all property in PA and was too expensive to move the CAT's to FL; I had no use for them here. Also, they were too old for anyone to have a interest in them. I'm 64 and I'm almost a has been. I tend to hold on to my Good Memories i.e. my older equipment, (now sailboats), cars, trucks, etc. .

If I made a connection (when I get it home) to the Tradewind 32 like I did with the I-37.... it will be a Keeper. The T-32 will take some work. It will require lots of labor to redo the interior but it's Not gutted inside. The T-32 need's a headliner, and cabin wood sides are stained with water leakage, just like my I-37. The T-32 was well equipped with better goodies then my I-37; it has 5 sails (like new), has a oven/3 burrner gas stove, was custom built, has double sinks, etc. .

Thank You,

Avery

Re: Rare Sailboat 1971 Tradewind 32

Not an exact match, but the underbody profile of your mystery boat resembles the Alan Payne designed Columbia/Hughes boats, (example below)

The rudder's not right, nor the deck but it's a very similar approach.. maybe that will jog someone else's memory...

Re: Rare Sailboat 1971 Tradewind 32

To denise030 and all.

None of the Sailboats above were like the Tradewind 32. The beam of 9 ft. 10 inches does not match up to any boat from the 30 footers to 33 footers. Also, the weight is 13,500 and weighs the same as my I-37. I wonder if the seller information is correct. I need to get the boat home. I will check the boat with actual measurements and better picture's. I should have the boat home in two weeks.

Thank You,

Avery

Re: Rare Sailboat 1971 Tradewind 32

I agree, the Columbia 32 has similar hull lines. Like you said, the fin rudder is different and is set at an angle like my I-37. Also, the keel is a little differnt and has multi steps in it's design. The Columbia keel is somewhat like the T -32'. I'm really interested in finding out the Building History of the T-32. It would be something to learn that this T-32 is One of Seven and perhaps.. only a few are still around and still seaworthy. This T-32 was loved at one time and has ben setting for about 5 years. The owner did not have time to work on the T-32, was sold for nearly nothing $$. When I made the deal, I valued the Talbert Trailer at $ 3,250.00 and the T-32 at $ 1,000.00 bucks as salvage i.e. boat componets, sails, lead in keel, etc. . Like I said, I will go through the boat completely and most likely keep it... if the hull is A OK.

Thank You,

Avery
