The Aloha 32 is a quality, Canadian-built, sloop-rigged, coastal cruiser designed by Mark
Ellis (similar to his Niagara 35 design). She is an ideal bay and cruising boat for two,
although she can sleep up to five. She accelerates quickly in a breeze and handles like a
dream. A reliable 21 hp Westerbeke diesel. Fin keel and spade rudder she can be turned within her own length in tight marinas.
Starting forward is the workshop/sail locker and chain locker with a large 24� x 24� hatch for great ventilation and to conveniently egress. Port and Starboard hanging lockers. Main saloon for entertaining with port and starboard seating and a centerline drop leaf table. Good storage all around and port side seat pulls out to increase bunk size. There is a large over head hatch for ventilation and 6 total opening ports with bug screens. Moving aft, the large head is on starboard with overhead hatch. A designated pump for shower bypassing bilge. On port is a spacious galley for preparing sunset dinners. A deep SS sink and salt water pump to conserve fresh water for washing dishes. A 2 burner propane stove/oven. The icebox is large with a top sliding shelf and is well insulated. Very good counter space and good storage for long distance sailing. Next aft to port is a single pilot berth with battery bank below, plus storage. On starboard is a comfortable double berth, long enough to accommodate 6�4� passengers. The engine compartment is centered below the cockpit. The Aloha has standing headroom of 6�4�.
Enigma has been lovingly maintained by her current owners. Her mast comes down yearly so all standing rigging is inspected annually. She had a complete bottom job in 2013 with new barrier coats and top coats. (no blisters) She is covered with custom frame work and tarps to protect her from the harsh New England Winters. Her top and sides are cleaned and polished with 2 coats of wax each Spring. Her bright work is in excellent condition. The current owners have enjoyed sailing her all around Long Island Sound, and the Islands.
