Wooden Ships Comments on this 32′ Buchanan

A top quality yacht, built by Sutton and Smith in 1970 to a very high standard.  The best materials were used with all bronze and copper throughout.  Along with her impeccable maintenance record in the present experienced ownership this means she is a superb yacht in top class condition, ready to be sailed away.

This is a proper sailors yacht, well balanced on all points of sail, easily driven and with a proper cockpit providing shelter and security.  The boat is well equipped and in smart ready to go condition.
