"The premise that led us to build the first 32RK arose from our desire to have a boat that would suit the water geography of south Florida, where we have vast expanses of quietly beautiful, but extremely shallow water. Our premise became more complex when we also wanted our boat to take us comfortably and confidently across sixty or so miles of open ocean, across the Gulfstream to the Bahamas and Abacos. Once to the islands, shallow draft would again be an important plus. That thinking led us to the 32RK. The 32RK may be the perfect boat for sailors everywhere wanting to get out of the marked channel and into quieter and less traveled waters, but at the same time, don't want to give up the stability and confidence that a deep keeled boat offers when venturing offshore. She's a wonderful fast cruiser even more compelling when you consider the possibilities offered by the variable retracting keel and rudder. Draft range is between 20" and 6' 5", making it possible to walk to shore from your boat without getting your shorts wet. And with the keel down (there's a lead ballasted torpedo-style bulb at the keel's lower tip), you can go almost anywhere. The possibilities are endless".
Below decks, accommodations are comfortable and intelligently planned, whether for sleeping, sitting and reading, cooking or showering. There's room for four adults and their gear for vacation cruising. The cabin is bright and well ventilated, with eight opening ports and two deck hatches.
The master cabin with double berth and privacy door is forward. Under the berth are storage drawers and to starboard is a hanging locker. There are two reading lights P/S.
The head is on the port side aft of the master cabin. There is a nice-sized separate shower with a seat; Jabsco commode; vanity and an opening port providing ventilation.
The salon is very bright and airy with a large table to port and a convertible settee to stbd. The table may be extended with its drop-down leaf raised; there is an extra seat which folds up to accommodate that diner.
The salon table to port also lowers to make a double berth.
The two seats on the starboard side, with table between, easily convert to a settee.
Outboard are 2 storage lockers and a handy shelf area for books.
The galley is L-shaped and located at the base of the companionway to stbd. Aft of the galley is a large storage area extending aft.. More details on this below.
The navigation station is conveniently located at the base of the companionway on the port side.
Aft of the nav area on the port side is quarter berth sufficiently spacious to accommodate two adults.
