“TRUANT” is a 1973 32’ Downeast yacht with a well deserved reputation and enthusiastic following. Designed and built to work the waters off Martha's Vineyard. Wasque (Way-squee) was named after the southeastern tip of Chappaquiddick known as Wasque point.
A group of yachtsmen from the Vineyard started building the boats in the early 1970's under Vineyard Yachts. TRUANT is a very versatile boat suited for a variety of pursuits from light cruising to striper fishing.
Interior arrangement features a practical galley, enclosed head, and forward V-berth suitable for two adults.
TRUANT is the perfect boat for a couple looking for a classic displacement pocket cruiser. She is in need of some TLC, routine maintenance and exterior paint and varnish. At the current asking price she is well worth the investment to bring this classic back to proper yacht condition.
“TRUANT” sleeps two. The V-berth was aft of the anchor locker with under storage. Aft to starboard was the galley sink followed by an enclosed head with S/S sink with hot & cold pressure water system, marine head with Electra san and Y-valve. The Galley was aft to port with a AC/ Propane refrigerator, two burner Force 10 propane cook top, and microwave.
Cherry and holly cabin soles. The center-line companionway leads up to the large aft cockpit. The helm station was to starboard. A raised centerline engine box with good sound proofing.
A hardtop covered the helm and partially covered the cockpit. Non-opening windshields, with wiper and side windows provide good visibility and additional protection from the elements.
The hull was hand laid fiberglass hull with full keel, protected four blade prop, and skeg rudder. The hull has a full length spray rail, molded into the hull. The boot stripe was black, the hull off white. There was a full teak rub rail with S/S strake to protect the hull. The anchor roller is mounted on the bow sprit, carries a Danforth anchor with chain and rode. The side decks, fore-deck, and cockpit deck all were in good condition. The wood trim was teak. The hardtop has the teak hand rails, electric remote spotlight, and VHF and GPS antennas. The bow has a S/S bow rail.
