Manufacturer Info

Bristol

Bristol

Bristol Yacht Company was started by Clinton Pearson, one of the Pearson cousins who had also started the large and successful production builder Pearson Yachts, in Rhode Island. Clint left Pearson and started his own venture in 1964. Over the years, renowned designers associated with the Bristol brand included Carl Alberg, Halsey Herreshoff, Paul Coble and Ted Hood of America’s Cup fame. The yard built over 4,440 boats of 22 to72 feet before eventually folding in 1997. Hood’s decimal series of centerboard sailers, 27.7 to 51.1, can still be seen on the water and enjoy a reputation for both speed and a seakindly motion.

Bristol 32
  • Boat Summary
  • Full Details

Description/Condition

This boat is a proven Great Lakes cruiser with a rich history. She has been in fresh water all her life. She sails like a dream in light wind and has a comfortable, gentle motion, thanks to her modified full keel and narrow beam. These features also make her a capable cruiser in heavy weather.

"Freedom" is a classic cruiser with beautiful lines. Her interior is gorgeous, with mahogany woodwork, updated upholstery, new curtains, brass accessories, and teak and holly sole. There is ample storage and plenty of ventilation. The cabin is toasty warm on cool mornings thanks to an Esbar forced air heater.

Above decks she is equally elegant, with teak cockpit grate, beautiful handcrafted wood helm seat and wood instrument case. Other great features include an electric windlass.  The rolling boom allows for easy mainsail reefing. She is easy to sail with a crew of 2 or single handed

General Description

This boat is a proven Great Lakes cruiser with a rich history. She has been in fresh water all her life. She sails like a dream in lights wind and has a comfortable, gentle motion, thanks to her modified full keel and narrow beam. These features also make her a capable cruiser in heavy weather. Her sister ship, a Bristol 32 built the same year, completed an Atlantic crossing.

"Freedom" is a classic cruiser with beautiful lines. Her interior is gorgeous, with mahogany paneling, updated upholstery, new curtains, brass accessories, and teak and holly sole. There is ample storage and plenty of ventilation. The cabin is toasty warm on cool mornings thanks to an Espar forced air heater.
