1976 Ericson 32 with 3 axle trailer
Much more info to come.
The Ericson 32 has always been renowned as a very comfortable boat, and a good sailing vessel. This boat has had the same owner since new. He custom ordered the boat as new. He also had the trailer custommade for the boat, and went out to California and drove it back to Wisconsin. The boat has always been on Lake Michigan in the summer and stored near their home in the winter. All original records are included. The trailer has brand new tires on it, ready for a trip to its new home.
He was an engineer, and took very good care of the boat, and really loved her.
It has a brand new sliding companionway hatch made this year. All of the exterior wood had been recently refinished and is in good condition.
Starting forward there is a vee berth forward, with a removable center cushion. The forward bulkhead has an optional opening door between the vee berth and the rest of the boat. There is an opening into the anchor locker from the berth. Shelves line both sides of the berth, and there is an overhead hatch. Easy access to the berth, and storage under the berth.
The head is next to port. It is a manual head with a holding tank. There is a sink with hot and cold pressure water. The head is roomy and comfortable.
Across from the head is a huge hanging locker, with lots room for all your needs ..
The salon is next. The woodwork around the salon, and throughout the boat, is in great condition, and gives an elegant feel to the boat. Along the port side of the salon is a dinette. It is designed with a folding table. Half of the table stays up, and the center (of the boat) leaf folds. With this arrangement, you can have a "permanent" dinette, without blocking the passageway, yet seat a crowd if you need to. The dinette also converts to a double berth for guests. The settee to starboard, also is a single berth, with a hidden extension into the hanging locker to make a full length berth. This is something common on Ericsons.
The L-shaped galley is to starboard at the base of the companionway. It features a 3 burner gimballed CNG stove, stainless steel sink, hot and cold pressure water and a roomy icebox. The Atomic4 engine is under the companionway stairs.
To port is a quarterberth that makes a very good seaberth. Deluxe fabric cushions in good condition. Extra Door for forward cabin Extra quick removable table Galley stove, gimballed-3burner w/oven Natural Gas System (NGS) Carpet Chrome hardware Ship's clock 2 Schatz Barometer
