1978 Endeavour Sloop

Olympia, Washington



The Endeavour 32 is a classic sailboat designed by Ted Irwin, and constructed by Endeavor Yachts in Florida.  They have a wonderful reputation for their roominess and their abilities as a cruiser. These yachts were originally intended to fulfill the need for an affordable and comfortable racer/cruiser.

Endeavour 32s are a very simple rig, easy to sail, but still provide a stout cruising vessel. This is a fine family cruiser offering sailing performance along with very kindly motion in a seaway. Over 600 were built, and they continue to be a popular, and fun boat today! 

She has a large roomy cockpit, a roller furling genoa, wheel steering, and a semi-full keel. Her bright, airy interior, plus a comfortable cockpit offers comfortable accommodations.

The roomy cabin is ideal for a couple or small family.  The rig makes sailing simple and can be single handed easy. Under power she is easily moved through the water by a low houred Yanmar 3YM30 diesel engine, providing 30 horsepower.

This vessel has had over $30K invested in refurbishments and upgrades providing great value and peace of mind for the future owner. The list of NEW items is extensive and can be reviewed in the detailed specifications that follow. This is a very nice sailing yacht which follows design criteria held in high esteem in decades past: she’s good looking, well-balanced and sails well on all points.

If you are searching for a wonderful and economical family cruiser with a well-regarded pedigree, providing roominess and a reputation as a comfortable cruiser, look no further. If this will be a first boat, or you are searching for a coastal cruiser, the Endeavour 32 would be an ideal boat!

Best of all, she is very affordable.
