General Description

Bayfield 32 C - a Cruising Classic

"With its full keel, sweeping sheer line, long keel and the turned spindles of its mahogany taffrail, it was the manifestation of a cruising boat"

Comfortable accommodation for couple or family cruising
Very safe and seaworthy for voyaging or weekending
