1978 Aries 32 . Thomas Gilmer designed boat. Slightly larger sistership to Gilmer designed Southern Cross 31, basically the same boat. Blue water double ender cutter rig with aft hung huge rudder. Overbuilt for ocean sailing with 10 Bronze ABI opening ports, huge teak hatches , bronze winches and cleats. Massive oversized bow pulpit with custom dual stainless anchor rollers attached to 5 ft sold teak pulpit. 3 anchor lockers, working 2 speed lewmar anchor windlass. Multiple anchors and g43 chain. Stainless dorades, 2 solar panels, very seaworthy cockpit. Stainless stove and oven . Bulkhead mounted heater and tons of teak belowdeck.
The boat does need some work as reflected by very low price. It needs paint and varnish, engine work, new lines, some wood work addressed, etc

This boat has circumnavigated twice and with some work could go again.
I'm selling because I'm 65 years old with health issues and frankly don't have the energy needed to fix it up. For folks in the know, the Aries 32 is basically the same boat you see on Kevin Boothby's well known YouTube channel "How to sail oceans". The boat will take you anywhere in safety.

7500 cash. I will also consider a trade for a decent suv or pickup truck.
