1988 Bayfield 32 C located in Florida for sale

32' Bayfield 32 C


Description: Rainbow Connection is a gorgeous Ted Gozzard designed cutter in excellent condition.
My grandfather bought her new in 1988 and made several trips from Canada to the Bahamas and back. In 2005 my partner and I took ownership of her and have sailed the coast Florida and Bahamas every winter.
In 2010 we began refitting her; a project which included a new engine (2012), new Spectra water maker (2011), new electric head (2011), new Lefrans Cobra windlass (2010), new Kiss wind generator (2009), new Aurinco solar panels (2014), SSB, autopilot, new trim pieces on the bow and stern (2013), new handrails (2012), new battery bank (2014), and a full restoration of the wood in the main cabin (2012-2014). In 2009 a 20in Atkins&Hoyle hatch was added over the V-berth for ventilation. A Bomar aluminum hatch was added in the cockpit floor to improve access to the stuffing box, shaft, and transmission.
When we replaced the engine in the fall of 2012, many improvements were made including all new stern through-hulls, new exhaust and Verna-Lift, all new bilge pump hoses, one new bilge pump, a new fuel tank coated with 5 coats of primer and installed on a raised epoxy-coated shelf. The bilge and all cockpit lockers were painted, the engine bay was painted and padded with 1/2 in sound insulation. A new shaft, prop, cutlass bearing, and PSS dripless stuffing box were added as well.
She is a very comfortable boat to sail. Nearly all sail changes and reefing the main can be done from the cockpit. The whisker pole can also be retrieved from the cockpit. These safeties make her ideal for single handing or for doing long passages. She is excellently set up for sailing down wind and in light air. She has twin forestays, a 18ft whisker pole which can be flown on the windward side up to 100 degrees, and a completely removable flying jib boom.
Rainbow Connection is our home and we cherish her, however plans for a family mean we are looking for a bigger boat. She has been lovingly maintained and is fully equipped to begin her next voyage.
