The SHE 32C is a beautifully designed and balanced craft. Marketed as a cruiser/racer, she appeals to the single handed yachtsman who puts performance before comfort.
Built by South Hants Engineering (SHE) to a Sparkman & Stephens design, The SHE 32C is distinctive thanks to her "clipper" bow, angled forefoot and long over hang at the stern.
The result is a fast, stiff and easy to handle cruiser/racer with a light helm suitable for both cruising with the family or thrashing round the cans on a weekend with your pals.
Below decks, although Spartan, offers good headroom, storage and 4 decent berths. She is classed as a 6 berth yacht with the addition of two pilot berths in the saloon but as the writer and in my early 50's I would struggle to get in one and definitely struggle to get out again.
The engine, although original is sound and starts first time. The engine bay encroaches on the saloon but comes in handy both as a seat for the chart table and as a brace position for the galley. Galley includes a Plastimo gas oven with 2-burner hob and grill. Electronics include Auto pilot, chart plotter, DSC VHF, sounder and wind speed. Good suit of sails including main, genoa, storm jib, jib and big boy.
