Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

From BlueWaterBoats.org :

The Cavalier 32, affectionately known as the “Cav32”, is perhaps the best production cruiser to be produced in New Zealand, and certainly one of the most successful. Right from the get go, when Sea Spray magazine in July 1971 took the first production boat for a sail they were impressed by both the spacious interior, berthing up to eight, and its on-the-water performance; noting it was fast, responsive, incredibly close-winded and with good acceleration.

The boat went on to compete very successfully as an ocean racer with a half ton rating, eventually finding its place among the cruising community as a comfortable and reliable blue water vessel. Many have cruised the South Pacific extensively, while others have circumnavigated.

Designed by Bob Salthouse in 1969, the prototype Cavalier 32 made its debut at the 1970 Auckland Boat Show. The concept was for a hull with high racing potential; a boat that would be satisfying to race inshore as well as offshore, yet have family-size cruising accommodation. It immediately proved popular with 14 boats sold by the time the first boat was launched in Jul 1971.

The Cavalier 32 became the first boat offered by a relatively new partnership between John Salthouse and respected boat builder Peter K. Smith. The venture was known as Cavalier Yachts, which incidentally, at its peak in the 1970s became the largest production boatbuilder in Oceania.

Shortly after its introduction the boat’s rig was revised with a shorter mast and boom to rate under the half ton racing rule. As a half tonner, the Cav32s were formidable competition that the boat stacked up many victories in the mid-70s.

The racing tradition of the Cav32 is alive and well today, each year a team of RNZYS skippers compete with the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron aboard Cav 32s both in Auckland, NZ and Sydney, Australia. In the 30 year history there has never been a protest; in grand Kiwi-Aussie spirit, all altercations have been settled in the bar.

The boat went on to find its niche as a favorite among the cruising community. In total 99 boats were built in New Zealand before the infamous 20% “Muldoon boat tax” decimated the NZ boatbuilding industry. The molds were exported to Australia and Japan where a similar number were built.

The Australian boats sported a redesigned rig that was 1.5m taller as well as some altered layouts.

“Bullet proof”… Andrew Fagan recounts the maiden delivery voyage of Tingara in 1975, skippered by none other than builder Peter Smith himself. The boat was caught in extreme conditions passing Castlepoint; wind speeds were clocked at a sustained 100knots with gusts of 120knots. A nearby 55ft fishing boat floundered with the loss of 2 lives while Tingara, running on bare poles, was broached and rolled multiple times by breaking waves. Remarkably the rig stayed put, and the crew did not send a mayday (the radio quit), and after riding out the rough stuff, the boat made its way into Wellington harbor a little wet inside and a some staved in washboards.

Sailing Characteristics

By modern lightweight racer/cruiser standards the Cavalier 32 is considered a substantial all rounder with excellence in heavy conditions and downwind performance. Helped by it’s 50% ballast ratio, expect to hold up full canvas well after other boats have to reef.

When Sea Spray magazine tested the boat during its debut, they described the boat being particularly stiff, “when a gust hits, the boat accelerates forward and does not lay on her ear and fight to round into the wind”. They noted the boat being fast off the wind without the tendency to broach and summed it up by saying, “At all angles of sailing the boat is superb. When ghosting she carries her way and makes miles; in the fresh she is truly exhilarating”

The boat is well balanced and easy to sail and single-hand. Expect finger light steering at all times.

Boat Configuration & Layout

The Cavalier 32 has relatively modern lines for a boat conceived in the early 1970s There is a moderately racked bow tapering out to a relatively narrow beam and a powerfully shaped aft quarter, reminiscent of successful Sparkman and Stephen cruiser/racers like the S&S34. The overhangs are nicely balanced and the sheerline attractive.

Under the waterline is a fin keel drawing 5′ 6″ and a skeg hung rudder which is controlled optionally by tiller or wheel depending on the boat. There are some shoal draft examples on the market that draw 5′ 3″ and 5′ 4″.

The cockpit has space for three and is adequately protected by substantial coamings and a coachroof that is just the right height. Side decks offer easy passage. Five crew can quite happily get about the decks in sailing mode.

Up above is a masthead rig with a small high aspect ratio main and a large genoa. A handful of the earliest NZ boats had taller rigs, as did all of the Australian built boats.

Inside, the cabin feels spacious for a 32 footer of its era with 6′ 1″ of headroom. There are twin sea-going quarter berths in the space below either side of the cockpit. The galley is small and functional on port side of the boat. Refrigeration is under the port quarter berth, which can be inconvenient to access at times. Across from the galley on starboard side is a decently sized nav station.

Further forward is the saloon with settee births on either side of the keel-stepped mast which intrudes into the cabin area, not entirely the most ideal setup for liveaboard space. The saloon table on most boats can be put away by sliding it up the mast to the cabin top.

On the other side of the forward saloon bulkhead is the head which shares space with the v-berth. On some models the head is built on the saloon side of the bulkhead subtracting from saloon space but allowing for full twin berths in the V.

Various accommodation layouts were offered with up to eight berths. The interior is finished in white, mahogany trim and mahogany veneer giving an overall feel that is light and spacious.

Construction

The boat was one of the early pioneers of cored fiberglass construction. The hull is built incredibly strong with hand-laid GRP with end grain balsa coring.

The layup from the exterior moving inwards starts with the gel coat which is reinforced by 1oz matt, then followed by 10oz cloth and two layers of 2oz matt. The balsa coring is 19mm thick in the bilge and 13mm thick above the waterline. Then comes 2oz matt and 24oz woven rove which forms a strong impact resistant layer.

All through deck fittings are backed by wood and glassed over. The hull-deck join is epoxy glued, then pop riveted with Monel rivets every 6 inches and stainless steel bolts every 12 inches. The join is glassed over forming a gusset equal to the hull thickness.

Buyers Notes

The Cavalier 32 has aged well, a testament to its strong construction. Areas of interested to prospective buyers are noted below:

  • The original boats built by Peter Smith of Cavalier Yachts had particular attention paid to preventing osmosis. It’s been noted that boats made later under licence may have had trouble.
  • To maintain the Cav32’s exceptional close-windedness, rig tensions need to be high. Some owners have overdone these leading to fatigue. Check wire terminals, rigging screws and chainplates.
  • Check mast fittings and the mast itself.
  • Check joins between the hull and bulkheads for movement, especially main bulkhead.
  • Check the chainplate knees. This is generally a very well engineered area, but also an area of very high stress.
  • Check the rudder stock, a few boats have had wear in the rudder shaft keyway, look for loose play in the tiller.
  • Leaching of zinc content of some bronze alloys in salt water is known to have shown up in some rudder stocks. Look for pinkish powder or paste on the surface.
  • Yanmar YSE 12hp single cylinder diesels were commonly fitted. Though smaller than what most fit today, it has proven to have adequate power when matched with an appropriately sized prop (not the folder race prop).

There is an active market for used for Cavalier 32s in Australia and New Zealand. Expect reasonable entry prices and good resale. As of 2010 asking prices range from $35k-60k NZD. There are the occasional examples that come up on the market that are presented in “as new” condition having undergone extensive refits and priced to match in the $70k-85k range.

Review of Cavalier 32

Basic specs..

The hull is made of fibreglass. Generally, a hull made of fibreglass requires only a minimum of maintenance during the sailing season. And outside the sailing season, just bottom cleaning and perhaps anti-fouling painting once a year - a few hours of work, that's all.

The Cavalier 32 is equipped with a fin keel. A boat with a fin keel is more manoeuvrable but has less directional stability than a similar boat with a long keel.

The boat can enter most marinas as the draft is just about 1.68 - 1.78 meter (5.51 - 5.81 ft) dependent on the load. See immersion rate below.

The boat is typically equipped with an inboard Bukh diesel engine.

Sailing characteristics

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

What is Capsize Screening Formula (CSF)?

The capsize screening value for Cavalier 32 is 1.87, indicating that this boat could - if evaluated by this formula alone - be accepted to participate in ocean races.

What is Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed?

The theoretical maximal speed of a displacement boat of this length is 6.6 knots. The term "Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed" is widely used even though a boat can sail faster. The term shall be interpreted as above the theoretical speed a great additional power is necessary for a small gain in speed.

The immersion rate is defined as the weight required to sink the boat a certain level. The immersion rate for Cavalier 32 is about 145 kg/cm, alternatively 815 lbs/inch. Meaning: if you load 145 kg cargo on the boat then it will sink 1 cm. Alternatively, if you load 815 lbs cargo on the boat it will sink 1 inch.

Sailing statistics

This section is statistical comparison with similar boats of the same category. The basis of the following statistical computations is our unique database with more than 26,000 different boat types and 350,000 data points.

What is Motion Comfort Ratio (MCR)?

What is L/B (Length Beam Ratio)?

What is Displacement Length Ratio?

SA/D (Sail Area Displacement ratio) Indicates how fast the boat is in light wind: - Cruising Boats have ratios 10-15 - Cruiser-Racers have ratios 16-20 - Racers have ratios above 20 - High-Performance Racers have ratios above 24 Sail-area/displacement ratio (SA/D ratio): 13.87

Maintenance

When buying anti-fouling bottom paint, it's nice to know how much to buy. The surface of the wet bottom is about 26m 2 (279 ft 2 ). Based on this, your favourite maritime shop can tell you the quantity you need.

If you need to renew parts of your running rig and is not quite sure of the dimensions, you may find the estimates computed below useful.

Jib sheet 9.8 m(32.0 feet)12 mm(1/2 inch)
Genoa sheet9.8 m(32.0 feet)12 mm(1/2 inch)

up to FNQ and then onto , , then back down thru PNG and back to Sydney…

I have been looking around now for the last 3-4 months and have come across the Cavalier 32 & or Phantom 32 boat…

I will most likely be doing a bit of solo handed sailing around 50% of the time and just wanted your general thoughts on both .

1. Has anyone got a cav32 or phantom 32 and if so have you sailed it overseas… How was it?
2. I have a friend who had one years back and said she can be a little slow esp during light winds but is a sturdy build. (Is this the case)
3. issue? I have read a few and nothing has come up regarding this.
4. I don’t know much about the Phantom 32, but she does look quite similar in size to a cavalier… Ideas?


I’m not looking for a cruiser or a and don’t mind doing the average 4kt at times but I also don’t want to be drifting out to sea with low winds. I know no is perfect so probably all of my queries are stupid but I would love if people could give me a bit of info just so I can have a general feel for things…

Ive got a of 30-40k and would prefer to buy one around the 30k mark if a few upgrades need to take place ofcourse.

Thanks for your response. Cheers!

hand circum from NZ that I read about.
Mine was supposed to be a first then upsize...but it’s been 8 years now and I’ve built her around myself.
I do come last in our twilights...but that’s all about waterline length.
Older, smaller have a wonderful community of people about them.
Can’t go wrong with a , well built, well designed yacht.

to an Ozzie company and Cav 32’s were built there (Under a different name I recall). The NZ Cav 32 has a balsa cored and , which makes them strong, light and rigid; not sure about the Ozzie ones. They are great sailing boats, very close winded and well behaved in all conditions. They have a reputation for being bullet-proof and have done lots of ocean miles. I haven’t heard of problems. Mine had a complete bottom peel and expoxy treatment in 2001. The owner was a real meticulous guy and put over $30K into the boat before taking her with wife and 2 small boys.

The NZ built ones have all-lead keels with 50% ballast ratio. They are very stiff; I don’t need to throw in a reef until its gusting 20kts. The rig is very 1970‘s: big jibs and small main, so you do need to carry at least 3 jibs. Mine has a headstay with #1 and #2 , a Solent stay with a hank-on #3 ”blade”, a , and storm trysail, also an set off the bow roller. With a good set of and clean bottom mine can sit on 6.5kts hard on the all day. I’ve clocked 7.5-8kts broad reaching with the kite up.

Most of the NZ Cav’s were supplied with a DV20 and a “V” drive. Several have had the replaced with a lighter . A few have had the original shaft drive setup replaced with a and I’ve even seen one with a hydraulic drive!

Yes, they are a small volume boat compared to more modern designs, but for single handed or 2 handed cruising this is not a problem, and believe me they sail better than those narrow-bow big-ass modern designs of the same length. For , the only downside is less room to carry toys and supplies.

I haven’t had mine out in open-ocean conditions, but have sailed her on Tasman Bay in 45+kts and 3m short chop seas with no problems.

The OZ Cav32’s were the same , but with changes to the rig, and layout. Many had (IMHO not a good thing); they have a 0.8m taller (a good thing for light air performance). That’s all I know about the Ozzie Cav 32’s.

$30K sounds a bit on the side for a Cav 32 fitted out for ocean cruising, my guess is for that you need to another $10K-$15K to get it ready for an extended . I’ve had 3 cruising boats in 50 years, spent 17 years full-time cruising, and I kinda know what I’m talking about, but hey good luck.

1979 Cavalier 32 now for sale with DBY Boat Sales.

The Cavalier 32, affectionately known as the Cav32, is perhaps the best production cruiser to be produced in New Zealand, and certainly one of the most successful. This 1979 model is now for sale and ready to go. A credit to the current owner, she is in great shape.

First yacht day dreams : Cavalier 32 or similar for offshore cruising

By bluezeb , February 13, 2015 in MarineTalk

  • Start new topic

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this game, and am learning to sail my little laser while I keep a lookout for a keeler - something a bit drier. Not in a mad rush, but here's the wishlist..

  • Must be a suitable first keeler.
  • Handle offshore conditions well - I day dream of heading offshore to the South Seas in 3 years when I know what I'm doing - Hauraki Gulf, Bay of Islands, Mercury Islands before that.
  • Must still be some fun to sail - I'll probably do a bit of social racing just for the crack of it.
  • Has to be easy enough to singlehand.
  • Budget 30K - 40K depending on what needs updating to get me through the first few years. 
  • GRP Hull - I love timber, but don't want the maintenance overhead.
  • Decent cabin for liveaboard or longer cruising for 1 or 2 people..

Cavalier 32 seems to fit the budget and wishlist.  I just had a squiz at  Conquero in Westhaven today and the cabin space seemed good (though I don't have much basis for comparison).

Any other models that might suit my budget/wishlist?

:)

Thanks in advance...

Welcome aboard. The Cav 32 is a good boat. I'm sure you'll get lots of replies, but on a fine weekend it might not be until Monday! What you are planning is certainly achievable. Be careful and thorough in your inspection of your preferred vessel, and make sure you get a survey!

There are not a lot of 32 footers I'd go offshore in, but the cav 32 is one!

Good luck with your search, and post your prospective vessels up here if you want some comments!

Black Panther

Black Panther 1,628

I lived on a Cav 32 for 8 yrs and 30,000 miles, single and double handed. Conquero was Pete Smith's (the builder) own boat. I liked the tall rig but that will be harder to find. You could do a lot worse.

  • Handle offshore conditions well - I day dream of heading offshore to the South Seas in 3 years when I know what I'm doing - Hauraki Gulf, Bay of Islands, Mercury Islands before that. Excellent offshore, very stiff and seaworthy. They can handle at least 90 knots offshore, I know that.
  • Must still be some fun to sail - I'll probably do a bit of social racing just for the crack of it. Good fun, especially upwind when it freshens up. A lot of the racing fun is a matter of finding similar yachts to sail against, regardless of how fast or slow they are.
  • Has to be easy enough to singlehand. They are very powerful for their size and well balanced, which gives you a lot of flexibility. They can hold on to sail extremely well if the wind suddenly gets up. Even a #3 genoa in 40 knots is possible at a pinch.
  • Budget 30K - 40K depending on what needs updating to get me through the first few years. Prices vary a lot, and do not always reflect underlying value. Spec levels did vary a bit depending on what options were selected. Sails, engines and other hardware will have different amounts of life remaining, and can be costly to replace. You need to research carefully, to determine final cost after any changes needed to make it into something that suits you. It is a buyers market with plenty to choose from. Your budget sounds realistic.
  • GRP Hull - I love timber, but don't want the maintenance overhead. Just be careful to avoid anything with osmosis.
  • Decent cabin for liveaboard or longer cruising for 1 or 2 people.. It is possible to spend a few weeks with 5 aboard. Should be very comfortable for 1 or 2. The high stability and fairly slow motion helps make life on board more comfortable.

Much appreciated folks. Very useful and also reassuring that the Cav 32 looks a good match for my wishlist. 8 years and 30000 miles says a whole lot Black Panther, and it certainly seems capable of handing bad conditions - hopefully I'll be too. Thanks for the specifics Unicorn.

For the racing - I'm on Waiheke Island, so a small but friendly club - but once I get going, I could always head to town if I want a bigger field or year round racing.

There are a few prospects on trademe that I'll look into further..

Red Baron in Waikawa seems pretty well set up and has the taller rig

http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/auction-638278678.htm

Sovereign in Tauranga looks tidy too

http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/auction-813393832.htm

Here's another which doesn't look as flash, but is a bit cheaper and rigging was repaced recently..

http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/auction-816099709.htm

I'll come up with my idea shopping list and see how these compare for the big ticket items (hull condition, engine, sails, rigging and hardware), but reality is that I don't know what I don't know, and I'll be relying on specialists (surveyor or diesel mechanic) to do their job well.

Anything likely to suit my wishlist other than Cav 32? - Makes it easier if not !

if your budget is 30-40k all up

you may be better spending 15-20k on your first keeler and holding the rest for expenses

this wouldn't be enough for a good cav32

but there are plenty of other 20-30' keelers that will do everything but offshore easier, less stressful + cheaper to get you soloing around the gulf right now 

http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/auction-847412384.htm

http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/auction-846852982.htm

or maybe this with a brand new engine

http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/auction-847073581.htm

even better bang for buck in the learner stakes

I have to agree with erice.

Offshore is a quantum leap in terms of experience required, possible risk, Cat 1 standards for the boat (good liferaft alone adds big bucks, not to mention reliable self steering of more than one kind) and backups of backups for most of your systems. I also dreamt of long offshore voyages perhaps single-handed or with small crew. Having done a 32 day trip from Tahiti to Chile, I now would not do an extended voyage with fewer than four crew (for safe and not too tiring watch rotations).  This probably means a bigger boat. Have fun.

Every person has their own level of acceptable risk that they are comfortable with.

When shorthanded, or single handed, the proper management of fatigue is but one of the things you must manage. Personally I have done, and am likely to continue to do, single handed  passages.

Two handed is often harder - as most crews then try to keep a 24 hour watch, most of the time. This, of course, is not possible single handed. If 2 handed, fatigue in the first few days as you get used to the routine can be difficult. Its easier if both are capable of running the boat, so the other can get decent sleep.

Three is pretty easy, again if all can run the boat. 

4 capable sailors is really easy. IMO. 

Also though, IMO, the shorter the crew numbers, the better the electronics I want to help remain safe. That means $. Single handed, I want radar with guard zone and AIS transponder. Others are happy with nothing, but for me, that's not an acceptable risk. There are way more vessels out there now than 50yrs ago!

To take a slightly different tack and pick up on Matt's point about the increased options in vessels these days, are there any boats of more modern design and open transom that would do the trick?

Yep, but I can't think of any with the OP's budget....

Hard to go past the Cav 32 really, particularly for a first yacht. You just know that boat will look after you.

If offshore is on the cards find one that has already done it, you'll get lots of extra gear for pennies on the dollar.

Thanks Matt. Leaving aside the budget for a moment, what boats would be on a good short list of modern designs that ?would give equivalent safety and perhaps forgiveness for short-handed crew.

Most small (ish) modern designs that were purpose designed to cross oceans are performace boats. So forgiveness for an inexperienced crew might be an issue. The Mini Transats come to mind - small, designed for singlehanding and crossing oceans. NOT a cruising boat! Class 40's are another. Maybe a Pogo 30 ?? 

All these may frighten a beginner!!

That being said, There are more production boats out there cruising than anything else. MOST make it home fine. You read of a few issues a year, (with both production and custom boats!) often poorly reported, with little or no background info as to the boat's history. Remember that there are currently over 10,000 boats out of their home countries, cruising, right now. (I can't remember where that figure comes from, so it could be wrong). A late model production boat may have a shorter life span than an older/heavier boat. The engineering has developed to the level where they know how many stress cycles the structure can take, and they design in the expected life. New production boats are stronger, IMO, than most believe, but they can/will deteriorate faster than their older cousins. 

Its a complex subject with much emotional comment. It's hard to get accurate info, if that even exists.  Most read what they can, look around, speak to others, then take their choices!!

Personally, if it were me unless I was going offshore in the next 2-3  years, I would be looking at something as an interim step more suited to coastal cruising and the odd race. Something like a y88 or Davidson 28 would be a lot more enjoyable to sail than a cav32 for 95% of weather conditions.

The Cav 32 ticks all your boxes. I had the same list of requirements and the same budget and after a long wait for the right one to come along I finally bought one and have never looked back, I love it. Easy to sail single handed, I do so regularly. Easy to reef the main as it is not too big and roller reefing headsail - easy. Also the rig is extremely well balanced, so much so I can leave the tiller swinging free and steer the boat with sail balance only, this means the autohelm is not working too hard.

If you want to cruise with more than three or four people then the layout is not ideal, ie no separate cabins, however for a couple or small family they are great.

A few points I found out along the way:

Cav 32's are susceptible to osmosis, you need to buy one that has had a full bottom grind or if not allow the cost of getting it done, I think its around $25k, more than half your budget so it would have to be a very low purchase price to warrant this option. Some have had osmosis repairs or partial bottom jobs, these yachts may continue to need more repairs. I decided I wanted to buy one that had a new bottom and was lucky to find such a boat.

If you can not get all your wish list ticked, then try to prioritise the items that require a high labour content to instal, for example, larger water tanks are not expensive to purchase, but would be a hassle and costly to fit, whereas a chart plotter you can just buy and fit yourself in 30 mins. So aim to get these difficult to fit items already in place then you can add the easy stuff later, even the life raft is easy to fit, so although costly to purchase, you don't need to pay someone to instal it.

If possible get a good selection of sails, light wind and stronger wind options, I have 8 sails including 2 spinnakers a MPS, storm sails and different headsails, to my own surprise I use them all (haven't needed the storm sails yet).

My yacht is in Marlborough, if you find yourself down this way, please call me I am happy to go out for a sail with you and show you the good and bad.

Good luck, Phil.

I have a mint Cav 32 that is currently on the market.

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=905444511&ed=true

Its possibly the best Cavalier in existence.

This price is way more than your wishing to pay but if you could stretch your budget you would not be disappointed.

Any way I'm happy to show you and take for a sail sometime.

Kind Regards

  7. Review of Cavalier 32

    The Cavalier 32 is equipped with a fin keel. The fin keel is the most common keel and provides splendid manoeuvrability. The downside is that it has less directional stability than a long keel. The boat can enter most marinas as the draft is just about 1.68 - 1.78 meter (5.51 - 5.81 ft) dependent on the load. See immersion rate below.
