The C&C 32 captures the essence of the cruiser/club racer of the early 1980s. While this boat may not emerged as a C&C classic, it does epitomize the builder's work at the height of its role and reputation in the Canadian sailboat industry. In many ways, this boat seems like the natural evolution of what C&C had started with its earlier 27 and 30 foots models, only everything is a little larger, and its lines are little more modern looking. Below is the familiar dinette arrangement opposite a full length settee, a layout which it has in common with its earlier predecessors. However, the interior of the 32 also has room for a quarter berth and a permanent chart table/navigation station. Outside is a large T-shaped cockpit, and the nice clean lines of the deck and cabin is what helped earn C&C a reputation for coming up with good looking designs. Although this boat was available with a combination shoal draft/swing keel, the major of the C&C 32s were built with the standard fixed fin keel.
