A beautiful and classic design by Ted Hood, realized by the famed Bristol Yacht Company of Rhode Island, the 32’ sloop is a great choice for weekenders, club racers and “simply messing about in boats”. And if you want to circumnavigate Vancouver Island, she’s a stout and capable offshore design as well.
The cabin has a very simple, clean and comfortable interior layout with a folding dining settee, custom vee berth mattress and plenty of storage spaces. Propane stove top and oven, a hand pump for freshwater and lots of sunlight and ventilation.
Sail handling is managed from the cockpit with new Lewmar sheet winches and tiller steering, and the ground tackle is more than adequate for a secluded overnight out in the Islands.
The sloop has a full boat cover for winter storage! She’s been well cared for over the years, most recently by her former owner who has moved on to a larger Hans Christian. All the standing rigging was replaced and she was re-powered in the mid-90s with an economical diesel Volvo Penta. With her inventory onboard of five sails in good condition, she’s all set to get you started on your summer adventures.
Call to see her this weekend. PLEASE no texts, just call us.

We are quite selective about the vessels we accept into our program and pursue a very rigorous process before they are listed for sale. This begins with our preliminary introduction when we meet with the donor to discuss the condition and upkeep of their boat. Once accepted, each new arrival undergoes a thorough examination, similar to what a marine surveyor will do. This allows us to prioritize our attention to deferred maintenance and any repairs that may be needed.
Over the years we’ve performed just about every kind of marine repair; from simple electrical and plumbing issues to all types of appearance enhancements to even rebuilding engines. If something is not working right we fix it, simple as that. We prove that her electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems are correct, safe and functioning properly. By doing all this, we know these boats quite well – top to bottom – and present them fairly and honestly to buyers. We encourage you to have our boats professionally surveyed as a part of your purchase process; by the time we’ve finished and the boat is advertised here, we are confident you’ll receive a strong report from your surveyor.
Thank you for considering PMF boats in your search !
