Well maintained and seaworthy Cav 32. She was custom built for the 1974 Sydney to Hobart (the last photo is from the 1974 Sydney to Hobart official program showing her as a brand new yacht in the Cavalier Yachts ad). If you know Cav 32's, you know they are built bullet proof and sail well. A new Yanmar 3YM20 diesel was fitted in 2009, and as of 6 months ago, she has new AGM batteries and renewed wiring, new battery switch and smart shunt for the new Victron BMV 712 smart battery monitor, new Enerdrive dc to dc battery charger and MPPT solar regulator and just installed new stainless solar panel arch with 2 new 160w solar panels giving a combined 320w output. The mast was stepped and completely refurbished (including the boom), with new wiring and LED steaming and anchor light. Most importantly, the entire standing rigging was replaced (including turnbuckles) and chainplates, masthead halyard sheeves, shroud tangs & masthead spinakker crane, at a cost of over $6000 by Quin Rig (rigging certificate included) here on the Sunshine Coast - you now have peace of mind for 10 plus years! At the same time, new RG213 coaxial cable was run down the mast from the new masthead whip antenna, giving amazing VHF range of 100km. I also replaced most of the running rigging, reorganised blocks, and replaced or repaired worn hardware and serviced the Seafurl headsail furler with new ball bearings in the halyard swivel.
The hull was repainted navy blue in 2011 but could use a polish. The deck could use a repaint but this is just cosmetic. All fixed portlights were replaced and resealed and there is a new foredeck hatch, all done by the previous owner a few years ago. The mainsail and Genoa are in good condition and still crisp with plenty of life. There are an assortment of extra sails, including spinakker. The interior sleeps 4 with two wide quarter berths and a rebuilt, wider & more comfortable port settee berth. There is a 2 burner metho stove and the original icebox. There are not many electronics other than VHF, depth and speed. The head is a modern Jabsco manual in good working order. She has a 2 blade folding prop for less drag when sailing.
This is a solid, well built vessel that can sail anywhere. The previous owner had her for 15 years and she was hauled and profesionally maintained constantly during that time and I have just done all of the above work in the last 10 months. She is QLD registered until 8/4/2023. This Cav 32 is a solid, clean, original boat that hasn't been messed with - what you see is what you get. Everything is accessible and in plain sight.
I did all this work in the last 10 months to begin preparing her for the South Pacific but as happens, my life situation has changed and she is now for sale. $29000
