Able Whistler 32 -- Sloop Rig -- Voyager

Able Marine Whistler 32 - Sloop Rig
$48,000 USD
Brunswick, GA

Strong, Simple, and Seaworthy. Ready to cross oceans! Designed by Chuck Paine.

This unique Whistler (hull #5 of a rumored 17 built) came with tiller steering and was originally cutter rigged. She still has the inner forestay, which is stowable and can be used for the smaller staysail and storm jib, both included.

Recent upgrades include:
Hull Awlgripped (2016)
Standing rigging with new Sta-loc fittings throughout (2016)
Harken roller furler (2016)
Dodger and canvas (2016)
Mack Sails main sail (2015)
New LED interior lighting
Custom fully enclosed outboard engine well by James Baldwin of Cruising Yacht Services (2018)

Full equipment list and more photos here:

Although she has a few blemishes here and there, overall the boat is in remarkably good condition. Recently, we had her out in winds gusting to 28 knots and had a good sail with no drama. She sails stiff and dry.

Owner is reluctantly selling due to distant job commitments.

Re: Able Whistler 32 -- Sloop Rig -- Voyager

Thanks to all for your interest and views.

More info on the the outboard well: I hired James Baldwin of Cruising Yacht Services to design, construct, and finish fully enclosing the previously open well. James did an awesome job; a huge improvement. Much better aesthetically, quieter, secure, and much more seaworthy.

See James's build process and the finished outboard well in action:
