Re: 32' Mariner Ketch $10,000 located in Zihuatenejo, Mexico

Thanks SkiprJohn. I have seen other posts regarding the plywood coring issues and will inspect carefully! Also, if I can't fit it in 32 feet LOA, then I don't need it!

Re: 32' Mariner Ketch $10,000 located in Zihuatenejo, Mexico

Aloha Nick,
The 32 has nearly as much waterline as the 35 which I had. The reason is that the bow and stern are a bit more plumb so interior space is nearly the same. If my Mariner 35 would have been made of fiberglass I'd still have it today but I had to change coasts in a hurry and couldn't take it with me. Sold it in the late 80s. Nicest boat I've owned.
Look at Fuji 32 also.
kind regards,

This site has pretty much everything you need to know. Mariner Yachts - Home of the Mariner Owners Association

Assuming this is a Mariner by Far East Yachts, and not a completely different "Mariner" company out of NH (I don't know these, but they appear to not even be in the same league).

My cutter is the Tayana built version of the Mariner 36, which is essentially a bigger brother of the 32. It has it's shortcomings like every boat, but it is beautiful, seaworthy, and although this is subjective to personal needs, roomy enough for a couple cruising. I imagine, the quality of these boats today would simply be reflective of how much "love" was put into them over the years...as I have seen various models in different degrees of condition. I would agree the hull is probably bullet proof, and I suspect I'll be doing some deck core repair in some point in the future. For a 1978 example, it's about as good as it gets.
I liken the (Tayana) Mariner 36 to the respected Cabo Rico 38 and Tayana 37. I'm not well versed on the Mariner 32, but I would expect similar expectaions from this Clair Oberly design.
I note additoinal info is posted here: Baba 30 vs Willard 30 with Mariner 31 / 32 (Just to Confuse Things)
