Re: E-32 Buying

I got the composite/stainless to keep a little of the original look. Very happy with them after 3 yrs.

Did you go with the Tri Mod or all Stainless Steel???? I was looking at them last year and then the season got here so quickly I decided to put it off a season!

Re: E-32 Buying

Buying "Fragile" has been the single most rewarding and happiest things I have done.

She completes me! I love every minute on her (although one day I think I want to live on something a bit bigger).... I can't imagine parting from her!

I found her on the hard, neglected and frail, and now restored, I smile everytime I see her.

We also have a video of her sailing in Colombia: ManiMoana TV - Envoyé Special - YouTube it is in french but the image is great!
Wow I have never been able to just take my boat and beach it like that.... rocks rocks and more rocks but it is pretty cool to know she is can go in that close somewhere in the world!

I just have to make my way there and plant myself!!!!

Re: E-32 Buying

We did not buy a E-32. We found a clean E-37. Probably the only one in Michigan. After my initial concerns about sailing characteristics that are well documented and the love/hate with the unique "look" were dismissed by the Admiral, we bought it

never happier, she's a stout well built cruiser with comfort in mind. She's not the prettiest boat in the marina but I'll take her anywhere we want. And that's what ended up being the important thing

enjoy

MarioG We have had our E-32 for a little over a year now. It was in great condition when we bought her, and the thousands we spent have been on making it "MORE" liveaboard then repairs.

We have sailed it amost 3000 nm's and couldn't be more happy with the boat.

They seem to be very well built so I would be looking for neglect and what PO have done alonng the way.

Ritchard It seems a shame that no-one has answered after a week. I bought a '79 last year, and found it to be a very stout vessel, very thickly-built hull with no issues.

I'm no expert, but it seems to me, check the regular stuff and weigh repairs/replacements against purchase price.

In my case, I have learned that there is no such thing as a great deal on a sailboat. The purchase price is only the beginning. It has been said that a $30K boat is a $30K boat, no matter what you pay for it. Again, in my case, my boat needed very little done, but I have spent $thousands anyhow.

But don't let me discourage you. If the boat makes you smile, buy it.
