Island Gypsy 32 Aft Cabin - 1989 - £44,950
An attractive all GRP, twin-Screw fly-bridge motor boat built by Kong-Halvorsen in Hong Kong in 1989, at that time the Kong Halvorsen yard was also building the Grand Banks range of yachts alongside their own Island Gypsy range - naturally Island Gypsy's were often compared with - and favourably compared - with their better known sisters.
This example is of the rarely seen 'Aft Cabin' layout offering two double cabins and two separate heads compartments, all in a compact 32ft hull. She is a fantastic cruiser to enjoy as a couple, with scope to receive visiting couples from time to time.
Over the past two and a half years a significant amount of work has been carried out including a total external respray with two-part epoxy paint (October 2018) and new saloon upholstery, soft furnishings and curtains in the same year.
