Sulis is a Bayfield 32, built in 1981 in the Bayfield boat yard in Clinton, Ontario. Inspired by the work of L. Francis Herreshoff, this traditional design by Ted Gozzard was introduced in 1973. With itsblend of modern construction and traditional lines, and built to the highest standards, the boat was very popular from the start. Ideal for cruising couples or families, the Bayfield optimizes below-deck space with a roomy captain’s cabin and head forward, and a port side quarter berth aft. The nav table is to port opposite the galley, with VHF radio, depth sounder and Garmin 3006C GPS. The galley is to starboard with a two-burner propane stove and oven, sea water pump, fresh water mixer tap over stainless sink, deep ice box, and lockers boasting lots of storage. The Dickinson wall heater brings warmth and style to the beautiful teak finishes below decks including teak veneer and holly floor. Facing settees in the saloon and a folding table offers comfort and additional berths.
Relatively beamy with ample freeboard, broad bilges and shoal draft, the Bayfield 32 has a rudder attached to a cutaway full keel. Cutter-rigged with roller furling on both head sails, she tracks beautifully under full sail and handles heavy winds and seas with ease and comfort. She has a deep cockpit for confident sailing, and includes winches and a taffrail-mounted traveller. Standing rigging, cleats and hardware are sturdy and made for weather.
This Bayfield 32 has only had two owners and is the perfect example of why there is no excuse not to get out on the water. This is a very clean, attractive and very well-kept family cruiser that will offer many years of comfortable sailing. Sulis is offered with tools, charts, diesel cans, heaving lines and fenders and is ready to adventure. This is a solid, well-equiped vessel ready to sail to any destination!
