The Vancouver 32 is a heavy displacement long keeled blue water cruiser. They have a well deserved reputation for comfort and safety, combined with excellent sea keeping qualities and a well balanced sail plan. Despite the heavy displacement they sail surprisingly well in light airs and the moderate draft makes them ideal for shallow water exploration.
