Definitely not your average 32 foot cruiser - viewing highly recommended.
The wide beam of this boat means it offers an enormous amount of space for a 32 foot cruiser.
The other key benefits of her size are sensible mooring fees and insurance - and with a single diesel engine even running costs are reasonable.
Styled on the traditional Island Gypsy and Grand Banks boats but with the benefit of modern fixtures and fittings, this boat is a tremendous package.
Step on via the ample swim platform and you're greeted by the cavernous cockpit. Her current owners have had specially made canvases fitted with roll-up side & back windows meaning you can have a bimini style cover on warmer days and a fully enclosed space at other times. The warm air heater outlets in the cockpit, handy seating either side of the doorway (and room for more) and array of power sockets means this is a very usable space whatever the weather.
Stepping into the saloon you move through a centre door and you're greeted by the fabulous interior which is traditional, elegant, classical, stylish, and functional. To port we have a dining table mounted on a chunky solid base which has a clever cranking system to allow it to be lowered to convert this space into an additional double berth. The L shaped leather seating area can easily acommodate 4 / possibly 6 if you utilise the ample space behind with a pair of occasional chairs. To starboard we have the very well equipped galley with oven, sink, domestic sized fridge, lots of storage space, and is bathed in light thanks to the huge window.
Forward from here is the helm with traditional ships wheel which adds to the charm and character of this fantastic boat. The owners spec'd this boat with numerous extras including a bow thruster which is handy on occasion for even the most experienced boater.
Heading forward we have the heads to port and separate shower/ wet room to starboard. It will be of no surprise to you by now to hear that these are very well appointed and all the finishings are of a very good standard.
The master cabin is simply huge! There's a double island bed, full length wardrobes to port and to starboard, and lots and lots of storage. Once again the finish and feel of this space is traditional luxury, with the endless wood cabinetry really setting the scene.
Aside from the outstanding overall exterior styling being a real head-turner, you'll find the hull sides have faux-clinker mouldings, the toerails are teak capped, and all of the deck gear is heavy duty stainless steel which gives the boat the finishing touches she deserves.
This is one not to miss - she is the only one of her kind currently on Windermere and was brought in to stock by Shepherds in 2006 (commissioned for her current, and only, owners in late 2008) so has always been on fresh water.
