Saint Petersburg ,
This vessel is ready to get back to cruising! Whether you want to do some coastal cruising, head down island, or just enjoy some nice day sailing this might the one for you.
The owners spent 6 months each year cruising from the West Coast of Florida to the Exumas in the Bahamas, on this shallow draft boat for the last 4-5 years before Covid, so this is a proven Bluewater cruiser!
The Watkins 32 was designed by William Tripp Jr. derived on the molds from the Columbia 32. Only eight were built, being first introduced in 1979. In 1984 the transom and some of the interior were modified and became the Watkins 33. This vessel is sloop rigged with a fin keel and a skeg mounted rudder. The interior is well appointed with 6ft 5in headroom!

Nick has always been a fan of all things nautical! When his wife planned a surprise sunset sail for his 30th birthday he had no idea just how much he would fall in love with sailboats and being on the water. With a degree in mechanical engineering, Nick used his expertise to begin researching the perfect boat to start his sailing adventures. Since then (4 boats later) he finally has a gorgeous liveaboard sailboat that he sadly only gets to enjoy part time as he travels frequently between the Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina markets.
Nick has over 20 years of experience in boating that began with driving a boat for the fire department for the search and rescue squad. From there he obtained his PADI certification as Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) in 2019, and has since earned his Captain’s license. He has assisted several friends as additional crew while transporting their boats, has spent countless hours over the course of several years researching sailboats for his personal purchases, and is always there to answer questions whenever someone needs a hand for their boat!
Research is Nick’s super power! When it comes to finding the absolute right fit for someone whether it’s a vacation (he owns a travel agency too!), car, boat or basically anything hobby worthy he is your man. Rest assured he will make sure that no stone is left unturned when it comes to taking care of his clients. His commitment to exceeding his clients expectations is what has earned him repeat business year after year.
He is an admitted YouTube sailing channel junkie, lover of all things rum, and in his spare time is always on the lookout for a good boat, car, or destination for his next adventure. Nick’s main focus is to ensure that his clients meet their goals. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell he will manage every step effectively and make sure that his clients have fun in the process! After all, you can’t buy happiness but you can buy a boat…and that’s pretty much the same thing.
