"KAREN FAYE" is an exceptionally well designed, solidly built, seaworthy and sea kindly boat with classic good looks capable of taking a couple anywhere in safety and comfort. She also sails really well. Sailor and author Ferenc Mate writes in "Best Boats to Build or Buy" that in fair winds the Westsail 32 can sail at 7 knots for days on end. He also writes that "in light ghosting airs she is a joy". Despite her large wetted surface and long keel, her high displacement actually creates momentum that enables her to coast through the lulls and makes maximum use of the puffs while many lighter boats stall in lulls. Ferenc ought to know as the Westsail 32 was his personal boat for many years and many miles This light air capability is a great quality given the abundance of light air on the east coast in general. She is also an easy boat to sail single handed. In 1992, KAREN FAYE competed in the Norfolk (VA) – Bermuda - Tortola (BVI) Caribbean 1500. She was purchased in Tortola by her current owners in September, 1999, sailed to the U.S. in 1999 and on to Oriental, NC in 2000. She was delivered to Lake Lanier, GA in 2010.
The chain locker with rodes for two anchors is located in the forepeak. The original V-berth has been lowered approximately 16 inches and new teak battens were installed on the walls to make the area more spacious and inviting (3/14 – 7/14). Storage area beneath remains generous. The V-berth measures 8’ wide at its widest x 6’2” deep; the new cushion (installed 11/14) features 6” foam bonded to 2” of memory foam.
Moving aft, the enclosed head has a cabinet and sink to port with hanging locker and six-drawer wardrobe to starboard. The main salon features facing port and starboard settees. The starboard settee pulls out to provide a generous single berth, while a drop-leaf dining table lowers from the bulkhead to port. Lockers and bookshelves are located outboard of and beneath these settees on both sides.
The galley features a gimbaled three-burner Force 10 propane Gourmet Galley Range and large thermostatically-controlled oven, installed in 2000. A cast aluminum propane tank is mounted on the cap rail astern to port, and a panel-mounted gas regulator is located at the navigation station. A stainless sink with pressure hot and cold water, manual foot pump and canister filtration is located to left of range with storage under counter and in cabinets outboard of range. New laminated countertops were installed 11/14 - 4/15.
The navigation station, communications equipment, breaker panels, and a wet locker are opposite the galley. Cabin headroom is 6’2” throughout. Cabin sole and joinery are of solid teak; overhead is cypress and naugahyde; cabin walls are teak and cypress. Due to the boat’s 11’ beam carried well forward and aft and displacement hull, there is plentiful storage everywhere. Not even a cubic inch of space is wasted.
Two 38-gallon, 22-gauge s/s fresh water tanks are located beneath cabin sole, and a Whale Gusher Mk III manual bilge pump in engine room, port side. A new Whale Tiptoe pump was installed in galley, 8/02. A Rule submersible electric bilge pump with automatic float switch was installed, 8/02. A pressure cold water system was installed in galley and head w/ March 893 centrifugal pump, 4/03. A Raritan PHE-II 12-volt electric toilet, Jabsco self-priming macerator pump and Y-valve were installed in head, 4/03.

A 6-gallon pressure hot water system was Installed in the galley and head, and the existing holding tank and hoses were replaced with new hoses and a fiberglass 6-gallon tank, 11/14 – 4/15.
