The Vancouver 32 was built by several different yards over the years. The original builder was Pheon Yachts Ltd., a British company founded by John Butler in 1978. Pheon Yachts also built other models in the Vancouver range, such as the Vancouver 27 and the Vancouver 36. Pheon Yachts ceased trading in 1991 due to financial difficulties.
Another builder was Ta Yang Yacht Building Co. Ltd., a Taiwanese company that was established in 1973. Ta Yang Yacht built some pilothouse models of the Vancouver 32 for the US market, as well as other well-known boats such as the Tayana 37 and the Tayana 42. Ta Yang Yacht is still in business today and continues to produce high-quality yachts.
A third builder was Northshore Yachts Ltd., another British company that was founded in 1971. Northshore Yachts took over from Pheon Yachts in 1991 and built some more standard and pilothouse models of the Vancouver 32 for the European market.
Northshore Yachts also built other models in the Vancouver range, such as the Vancouver 28 and the Vancouver 34. Northshore Yachts merged with Southerly Yachts Ltd. in 2010 and became part of Discovery Yachts Group Ltd., which is still operating today.
