Challenger 32 Specs

The Challenger 32 looks like a very interesting boat. The girlfriend really likes it. I told her we'd have to name it "winnie" as from the pictures it looks like a mini winnie on the inside.

Does anyone have any specs on this model? I would like to know what the tankage is, the draft, the keel shape, rudder (spade, skeg hung, keel hung), was it factory tiller or wheel steering, etc.

Thank you for any help you can provide

Thanks Gord! That profile shot and the specs were exactly what I was looking for.

Is this boat "corky?" The specs show a ballast ratio of 25 % and it looks like a pretty flat bottom in the pictures.

challenger 32 loa

What confuses me is that my 1970 challenger 32 has a loa of 33 feet 8 in. rather than the loa of 32 2 as always seems to be listed.

Re: Challenger 32 Specs

Does anyone have any information on where I can get an owner's manual for one of these boats. My dad recently bought a 1973 32 Challenger that needs some work (especially electrical) and he is looking for some assistance.

Thanks in advance for any help that is offered.
