Thanks for sharing this. Always love to see ketch sailboats. Love the headroom inside her. Wish my 32 ketch had tier cabins like that. Makes for so much more room inside, while not adding much to the freeboard.

I saved the web address, will keep up on the new owners adventures. Cool providing a web site to go along with the sailboat.

Re: Grampian 34 for sale - $15,000 CND - PRICE LOWERED

I have done some looking at your sailboat because of your post. I am disapointed in the limited choice of photograps available on the internet. Not just your boat but all of these boats. Yours is yhe most pics i have seen, but not enough detail about the aft cabin, engine room, head. All areas of your boat needs more pics.

Videos of your make model of sailboat are not on you tube.

If you could, would you document your sailboat before yoh sell it, with hundreds of photographs and several videos.

Yours is a special sailboat and her qualities and grace needs to be better documented for future generations.

Your boat and mine, are very much alike. It is as if William Crealock copied much of your boat and shrunk it 2' to make mine.

The site www.grampianowners.com has a few pics, but not many.

I would love to see your boat, but Nebraska is a long ways away.

Again, thanks for the kind words Gary. I fully agree that it is a great boat. Sadly, there isn't a lot online about it. I suspect that's a combination of its age (pre-Internet) and the fact that Grampian only built about 50 of them.

I had intended to better document the Grampian 34, which is why I registered the domain: Elysian.ca. Good intentions ... poorly executed (the story of my life ). I don't have the time to do as you ask, although I agree it is a worthy task. I will, however, suggest that the new owners take up the torch. I will also encourage them to join CF.
