EXTREME SHOAL DRAFT & TRAILERABLE TOO!
This shoal draft lifting keel boat will take you to the most interesting places. Drawing only 1 foot 8 inches with the keel all the way up and 6 foot 6 inches when fully lowered you can go from the beach to off soundings and anywhere in between.
She is ideal for the shoal draft waters of the Chesapeake Bay, the Inter-coastal waterway, the Bahamas or anywhere there is shallow water - Including at your dock.
Extend your sailing season by loading her on a trailer and head South or bring her home for the winter - why pay for storage? Next Summer you may want to cruise another area like the Great Lakes. So many options for you!

The premise that lead us to build the first 32RK arose from our desire to have a boat that would suit the water geography of south Florida, where we have vast expanses of quietly beautiful, but extremely shallow water. Our premise became more complex when we also wanted our boat to take us comfortably and confidently across sixty or so miles of open ocean, across the Gulfstream to the Bahamas and Abacos. Once to the islands, shallow draft would again be an important plus. That thinking led us to the 32RK. The 32RK may be the perfect boat for sailors everywhere wanting to get out of the marked channel and into quieter and less traveled waters, but at the same time, don't want to give up the stability and confidence that a deep keeled boat offers when venturing offshore. She's a wonderful fast cruiser even more compelling when you consider the possibilities offered by the variable retracting keel and rudder. Draft range is between 20" and 6' 5", making it possible to walk to shore from your boat without getting your shorts wet. And with the keel down (there's a lead ballasted torpedo-style bulb at the keel's lower tip), you can go almost anywhere. The possibilities are endless.
Below decks, accommodations are comfortable and intelligently planned, whether for sleeping, sitting and reading, cooking or showering. There's room for four adults and their gear for vacation cruising. The cabin is bright and well ventilated, with eight opening ports and two deck hatches.
The master cabin is fwd with a v-berth and filler. Under the berth are storage drawers and to starboard is a hanging locker. There are reading lights on either side.
The head is on the port side aft of the master cabin. There is a nice sized separate shower with a seat and an opening port for ventilation.
The salon is very bright and airy with a large table to port and a convertible settee to stbd. To accommodate additional seating while dining, there is a extra seat which folds up when desired. The salon table lowers to make a double berth.
The settee on the starboard side easily converts to 2 seats with a table in between. Outboard are 2 storage lockers and a handy shelf area for books.
The galley is L-shaped and is located at the base of the companionway to stbd. Aft of the galley is open to a large storage area. More details on this below.
The nav is conveniently located at the base of the companionway on the port side. More details on this in the nav section below.
Aft of the nav area on the port side is a large quarter berth.
