****An Awesome Opportunity****
The Cavalier 32, is perhaps the best production cruiser to be produced in New Zealand, and certainly one of the most successful. This 1978 model is now for sale and ready to go. This Cavalier is in very good condition and is a must to inspect.

Right from the get go, you will be impressed by both the spacious interior, berthing up to 6, and its on-the-water performance; noting it is fast, responsive, incredibly close-winded and with good acceleration. The Cavalier 32 went on to compete very successfully as an ocean racer with a half ton rating, eventually finding its place among the cruising community as a comfortable and reliable blue water vessel. Many have cruised the South Pacific extensively, while others have circumnavigated.

By modern lightweight racer/cruiser standards the Cavalier 32 is considered a substantial all-rounder with excellence in heavy conditions and downwind performance. Helped by it's 50% ballast ratio, expect to hold up full canvas well after other boats have to reef. The boat is well balanced and easy to sail and single-hand. Expect finger-light steering at all times.

The Cavalier 32 has relatively modern lines for a boat conceived in the early 1970s. There is a moderately racked bow tapering out to a relatively narrow beam and a powerfully shaped aft quarter, reminiscent of successful Sparkman and Stephen cruiser/racers like the S&S34. The overhangs are nicely balanced and the sheerline attractive. Under the waterline is a fin keel drawing 5ft 6 inches and a skeg hung rudder which is controlled by a wheel.

The cockpit has space for five and is adequately protected by substantial coamings and a coach roof that is just the right height. Side decks offer easy passage. Five crew can quite happily get about the decks in sailing mode.

Inside, the cabin feels spacious for a 32 footer of its era with 6ft 1 inch of headroom. The galley is small and functional on the port side of the boat. Refrigeration is under berth. Across from the galley on starboard side is a nice sized navigation station.

Further forward is the saloon with settee births on either side of the keel-stepped mast. The saloon table on most boats can be put away by sliding it up the mast to the cabin top.
