Alright, my curiosity is getting the best of me.
What can you tell me about these boats, that one appears to be from the 70s?

Slow, poor sea keeping abilities. Most i have been on hold up well, pretty thick for the era. They are littered up here by me. Great for party boose boats or taking a bunch out for bottom fishing. Most all are in v drive configuration. Even with the perkins not worth 12K

A friend of mine had one which he did a full refit on. they are not too bad in a following sea an slam a hit in a head sea and you feel it with the helm beeing far forward, they are fairly good fishing boats and will be good enough for tolling. the flybridge and interior are very large for a 32 foot boat. My friend's boat was powered by twin 140hp yanmars and it used to cruise at 14 knots burning about 8-10 gph. The major negative is the fuel capacity, which is only 140 gallons

We see them out on moorings (w/o running gear), used as a summer live aboard.

This one might be a "goer", but you'd need to get a surveyor to look over a lot of aged systems etc. Pics look good....but don't they always look good in pics? Definitely not a $12K boat (IMHO)

Did you call and inquire about service history, hours on engines etc? Usually a brief description like that means there a heck of a lot more to "the story"......

Just my .02
