STELLA V | Endeavour 32 Sloop 32ft


Kingston, ON, CA



The Endeavour 32 began life back in 1970 as the Irwin 32. Ted Irwin designed her as a dual-purpose cruiser-racer before the development of IOR. Although the Irwin 32 had been out-designed for racing, the hull was still a nice, clean, conservative, and comfortable design for cruising. The molds for the Irwin 32 formed the basis for Endeavour Yacht Corporation, which built about 600 Endeavour 32s until 1982. Although the Irwin 32 and the Endeavour 32 look identical and have the same displacement, the E32 is 4" wider, and 4" longer overall, and 6" longer on the waterline.

There is an anchor well at the bow with a hawse pipe feeding the anchor rode into the V-berth locker. There are teak grab rails on the cabin top and a large aft cockpit with good back rests, an icebox and storage lockers. The companionway goes down to seat height, about 12" above the cockpit sole, and has three drop boards. The pedestal steering system (24" Edson wheel) operates with stainless steel cables rotating a quadrant bolted and keyed to the rudderpost.

The interior is finished with varnished teak with soft white overheads. The cabin sole has a signature parquet flooring in very good condition. The interior layout boasts a V-berth forward; the head (to port) and lockers (starboard) divide it from the main salon area, which has a fold-up dining table. The port side settee pulls out to create a double berth, the starboard is a single. Aft and to port is a pilot berth and to starboard is the galley, which has an icebox and a gimbaled 2-burner Origo alcohol stove. The electrical panel is located immediately under the companionway, and the stairs remove to allow access to the engine. There are 10 opening ports and two large deck hatches, one each over the v-berth and salon area.

When the wind picks up, she's a wolf in sheeps clothing. She gains speed and the water line begins to stretch out. Her beam allows for good directional stability and keeps the bow from "digging" in like many wide stern boats being built today. One admirable characteristic of the Endeavour 32's performance is that the hull almost never pounds in a seaway and a small crew can easily handle the boat.

STELLA V is a boat that has had a great deal of care lavished upon her by a series of very knowledgeable and loving owners. STELLA V is a simple, forgiving, stout cruising boat looking for a new family to take her on her next set of adventures.



Thank you for all your work in facilitating the sale of our dad's boat. Jake and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it with the many visits, paperwork, etc. A special mention has to go out to Grant for teaching me how to fold the sails!

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
