by Ed Sabin
(Pasadena, Maryland, USA)
Samson C-Mist 32 ferro-cement cutter built in 1970's and still going strong.
One owner/builder reaching age (78) where a small trawler makes more sense.
Based on Atkins North Sea pilot boat design this heavy duty sea-worthy double-ender resembles a Westsail 32 but has more room.
Powered by sails and a reliable Volvo MD-11 two cylinder diesel, this boat has been up and down Chesapeake Bay and around the Delmarva Penisula.
Professionally built wood interior, cabin and cockpit, boat comes fully equipped with 5/16" stainless steel rigging, roller furling jib, Jib sheet winches, two anchors including a 35 lb. plow, chart plotter, VHF radio, Lewmar portlights and aluminum dink.
Length is 32' not including a 5 foot bow sprite, 11 foot beam, 5 foot draft.
Heavy duty rudder and oak tiller. Ferro-cement was popular in the 1960's and 1970's before home-builders could build boats out of fiberglass.
It's an inherently strong material which only gets stronger with age.
Boat does not leak.
Bargain at $19,500.
