Presentation

A classic blue water, cutter rigged cruiser. Westsail 32's have a long history of being solid, reliable and seaworthy cruising boats. Many have made round-the-world passages. "Makroro" was launched 1976 in California, and completely re-fitted in the early 90s. She features a beautiful solid teak & mahogany interior, plenty of storage space and all the accesories for cruising.

Main features:
- Complete standing rigging replacement & new halyards (2014)
- Reconditioned engine and gearbox (2015)
- Prop balance, new prop shaft, new dripless PSS shaft seal (2016)
- New custom HDPE fuel tanks (2016)
- Composting toilet (2014) with option for easy re-fit of standard seawater toilet
- New solar panels 2 x 105W (2015)
- New Magma gas BBQ (2015)
- Australian registration

The owners now have a growing family, and not enough time. Some work would be required before serious cruising:
- Replacement of house batteries
- Sail covers and dodger replaced, due to hail damage & age (quoted $5700)
Please note the listed price already accounts for these potential maintenance costs.

Remarks
Makroro's no-compromise approach to seaworthiness is carried through into her sailing performance. The heavy, full-keeled hull makes for good tracking offshore, coupled with a safe-feeling and quiet ride.

The Westsail 32 had a tremendous impact on the cruising world, and on the boat industry. The most immediate impact, of course, was on the 800-plus owners of the boats built. With her massive no-nonsense construction, the Westsail largely delivered on the promise of a boat that could take its owners anywhere in the world, and surprisingly many boats have in fact been sailed to exotic locations.
Now - your turn to own the legend! Makroro offers serious cruising within the reach of those on a budget. Currently lying on a mooring in Port Stephens, NSW, Australia.

For sale by owner. Inspection available on weekends by appointment.
