General Details

This race ready Ericson 32 is located in Rhode Island.

The lavish teak interior gives a warm comfortable ambiance below
while providing a full 6' 2" headroom and a spacious 10' 10" beam
plenty of comfort for the cruising family.

There is a spacious U shaped galley to starboard with hot and cold pressure water,
a 10" stainless steel sink with through-hull drain. It has a gimballed 2 burner stove with oven
and safety bar for those intrepid souls that expect the ships cook to provide a hot meal
while under way.

There's a 6 cubic foot insulated ice box with insulated top and lid. A tilt-out dish caddy that holds ten full place settings. To give you an idea of the thoughtful planning that went into the Ericson 32, they even thought to have a trash compartment that opens to the cockpit through a lazerette hatch. Who thinks about making garbage convenient?

There are plenty of drawers and cabinets for storage, a top loading dry storage bin and even a built-in wine rack.

The nav station is to port and just forward of the spacious 6' 6" quarterberth on the
port side.

Forward of the nav station is the settee with seating for 4, and a convertible dinette that provides a 6' 6" by 4' berth.

Forward is the owners stateroom secluded by a private teak panel door complete with a
private changing area and a large hanging locker.

On deck Esprit has everything you need for that casual afternoon sail on a balmy Sunday
afternoon, or for missing by inches, white knuckle competitive racing. This
boat is equipped to be sailed to your design. (Or your spouses, if are looking to provide some harmony on your sailing adventures).

She has the wing keel option providing a shoal draft and offering substantial lift upwind.
The wings are angled down slightly at the leading edge to produce windward lift when the
boat heels.

There is a significant sail inventory. See Specifications Section for all the details.

As with any boat that has been enjoyed there are some issues for the buyer to be aware of:
The hatches are crazed but not causing any issues.
Zipper near the mast top is stuck, access to electrical connections.
Dodger was new in about 2007 but has slight damage that owner is trying to remedy.
There is a spare halyard on the mast that is stuck and and can't be fixed while the mast is in place, this is a third halyard that has never been used.
The hot water tank has never worked since 1996. Owner has never had reason to want one.
There is no provision for a shower. With only 30 gallons of water storage a shower never made much sense.  
The upholstery is clean and mostly healthy but is showing fatigue in spots.
There are various dents and dings that accumulate with an actively used boat.
Esprit has been raced competitively over the years and has collected dozens of trophy's. This is a boat that someone can have some fun with and hone their sailing skills. 

Definitely a boat to be considered.

Please call for an appointment.
