Padebco V32 Cruiser

The Padebco V32 Cruiser (32′ 1″ LOA, 11′ 6″ beam) combines the beauty of traditional Downeast lobster boat lines with a modern fiberglass underbody and an interior that leans toward luxury.

The V32 Cruiser features a long waterline with a moderate deadrise at the stern, a classic sheer, flared bow section, and elegant tumblehome at the stern that results in a comfortable dry ride and seaworthiness. The captain will feel as confident cruising on the bay or offshore, and her aft deck has plenty of room for entertaining and is well-appointed with a full bench seat and midship seat. The cruising season is extended with the protection of an enclosed and spacious hardtop pilothouse and salon, featuring 6′ 6″ headroom, an L-shaped settee, plenty of windows, and excellent visibility from the helm and mate seats.

Enter the varnished teak companionway door to the forward cabin offering 6′ 3″ of headroom, a full-size V-berth, enclosed head with shower and a galley equipped with a two-burner stove, refrigerator, microwave, and sink. Power options include jet drives, straight inboard propulsion with a keel and outboard engines. Powered by Yanmar 330-hp diesel engines mated to twin Hamilton Jet drives, the V32 Cruiser runs to a top speed of 33 knots.
