Broker's Comments

The NAB 32 is quite a rare boat on the UK market and believed to be based on a Hallberg-Rassy design and this vessel was built by the Nab shipyard in 1974.

The key features of the boats are: keel type - full keel. 1 x Yanmar 3GM30 engine. Fuel type - diesel. With a fuel tank capacity of 150 litres, the Nab 32 can cover some distance.

This boat is well equipped with a nice array of electronic navigation instruments, and she benefits from having an autopilot system. She has what appears to be a very sturdy stainless steel "A" Frame arch fitted to her stern which accommodates a large solar panel for keeping her batteries topped up and a set of strong looking davits to make light work of launching and retrieving her tender.

She is in need of some TLC and some of the headlining's are in need of replacing and her engine appears in need of some maintenance.

Please don't hesitate to contact me should you want to have a chat about this boat of book a viewing.
