Bay Dreamer is a very comfortable cruiser. Designed by Bruce King, this sailboat is built to sail. Take her out on the bay and enjoy a day of cruising, then stay on her and experience her elegance below deck. Despite being only 32' long, she feels incredibly spacious and appointed below.
Come on by Afterguard to check her out!
My group of 4 rented Mary's Erickson 32 for a nice afternoon on the bay. The day started with fairly light winds. Especially for my sailing-inexperienced in-laws, the light winds and the boats great performance in them allowed for a very leisurely "training session". Off in the distance (around the horn) I spotted the wind off in the distance. The inboard diesel was more than adequate to get us over there in a hurry. Once we found the 15-20kn winds, we were REALLY cruising. The heel was predictable and mild, even in heavier wind conditions. We didn't reef, as the crew were immensely enjoying "SAILING". There was very little weather helm at about 15kn and all members of the group took turns at the helm in the true bay area conditions. It was a fabulous day of sailing in all conditions and I highly recommend this Bay Beauty. Thank you, Mary!
The Erickson 32 is a beautiful sailing vessel. I found it to be very well balanced. With the light winds, the inboard diesel was great. Even when fighting a 3kn ebb, we were able to get back to the marina in time.
Mary at Afterguard was wonderful and helped us plan our day on the water. Kevin had the boat ready for us and walked us through the features of the vessel, informing us of certain quirks to be aware of.
All in all a great outing. I'm excited to rent again!
