NOW REDUCED - Southern Ocean 32s have been providing great sailing for years. This one has had many recent upgrades and offers fun club racing for a minimal investment. Locally designed and built for local conditions, the Southern Ocean 32s are excellent all-round performers with overnight accomodation facilities for up to 6. The aft cabin is a unique and handy design feature offering two sleeping berths or vast storage capacity.

Recent upgrades to this Southern Ocean 32 include a full hull repaint with new graphics, a new GPS & Plotter, a new chemical toilet, a new Honda outboard engine installation, still under warranty, a new bilge pump and new batteries so she's good to go for many more years. The new engine has remote starting, throttle and gear controls and electric tilt right at hand in the cockpit. This yacht has an upgraded modern T shaped steel keel fin with a lead bulb delivering lighter overall weight, improved performance and greater stability so she's an ideal 2-handed yacht. Sails are good, rigging is current and she's ready to sail away as a competitive club racer or a fun twilighter. Excellent fun-per-dollar value here!
