I never owned a Seawind MKII but owned the original Seawind. The original is known to be the 1st fiberglass sailboat to circumnavigate. They are full keeled with solid glass hulls and balsa cored deck (check for soft spots). The MKll to my knowledge is a slight modification of the original and should be a better performer with a little over a foot increase in LOA, waterline, and beam.

If she is well maintained you have a winner......

Re: serious opinion on allied seawind 32' II

The Seawind is a strong, well built, and well proportioned 32 footer. As with all older boats there is great variation in condition so don't assume every Seawind is a circumnavigator. There is a great community of owners and archival info online to help you through the challenges of ownership. Mine is a cutter but most were ketches. Google Allied Seawind videos and you should be able to find a few of my videos that shows her under sail.

If you can point us to the boat you are looking at I'm sure a few of us would offer some opinion.
