1984 Sausalito Boat Co. ARIES 32

Added 5 October, 2011

About this Sailboat:

This was the custom design by Tom Gilmer and IMHO is a better built, finer finished and better blue water sailer than a Crealock 34. Built by the Sausalito Boat Works in Calif. who had been building a superior wooden double ender for 40 years, they finally went to fiberglass and went broke after 6 vessels because of their uncompromising quality and workmanship. She’s a sailors dream of confidence, always meeting your expectations, and some.
She feels like a stiffer, larger vessel in rough seas, yet tacks through in light airs on her big Drifter easily with the large trailing tiller rudder. Her 33 h.p. Westerbeake drives a big 15″ 3 blade prop, and will power thru 4’to 5′ seas dry pole, if necessary, at a good 6 kts. RARE! And in rough seas, there’s plenty of cabin overheads or topside truck handrails to steady on. A Dream to handle from the aft cockpit seat, with a cross traveler spanning the mid cockpit for the main sheet. No need to leave the helm to go forward to a cabin truck winch, very safe single handed, with a self tending staysail. I’ve installed a New Navico Tiller autopilot, that’s remote as well on the main mast, for directional control while sail tending the main or fore deck sails. She has a forward 35# CQR anchor, but I can drop an aft 20# Danforth from an aft locker mounted on the boomkin entering an anchorage, and never leave the cockpit. Being double ended, she’ll then bring fresh cooling breezes into the cabin. Comfort equipted with cockpit cushions, mosquito barriers on all ports and companionway, 6 new interior cream colored scotch guarded custom made cushions. www.americanboatsales.com
