This all-glass hull and deck assembly Newman 32 is a one-owner boat since new and has been very well maintained, upgraded, and run. She has the traditional lobster boat look while her interior is all pleasure. Berths for 4. Her cabin is well laid out with v-berth forward, head, galley, hanging locker, and many customized shelves and lockers for storage. Her enclosed wheelhouse offers a helm seat and convertible dinette to a double berth, and the cockpit with swim platform adds to outside enjoyment of the elements. Homarus is a very clean, seaworthy, and beautiful Downeast picnic boat and overnighter to be enjoyed by on-the-water enthusiasts!
This boat (Hull #52) was built by the Jarvis Newman Boatyard in Southwest Harbor, Maine, in 1987 and completed in 1988. The hull is solid fiberglass and the fiberglass deck assembly, including trunk cabin, windshield, and sheltertop, is cored with molded nonskid. She was finished with teak trim, SS deck hardware, and an open wheelhouse. Fiberglass rudder. All underwater thru-hulls are bronze with seacock valves. In 2004 the Newman & Gray Boatyard on Cranberry Island, Maine, enclosed the wheelhouse, adding a convertible dinette to port and a teak double-door to cockpit. The original gelcoat is in very good condition with good maintenance every year.
