1962 Motorsailer Troll 32

location icon Plouer-sur-Rance, France
Year 1962
Length 31'8 ft / 9.65 m

1962 Troll Motor Sailer with 50 hp Perkins Prima 4 cylinder diesel engine and good cruising inventory. A very well maintained example of these traditional clinker built motor sailers, designed by Gunnar F Klingenbergwith full length oak keel, mahogany on oak planking and canoe stern, on the lines of a traditional Norwegian fishing boat. Since purchasing the yacht, the current owners have spent a considerable sum on numerous upgrades and an extensive programme of hull, deck and coachroof repairs in 2002, 2006, 2008 and 2016 which also included a major mechanical overhaul and new keel bolts / chain plates. An ideal traditional liveaboard cruising yacht which was last surveyed in 2011 and 2014.
