Broker’s Comments

What a superb full-displacement motor-yacht. If you are after a really nicely-built 4-berth cruiser, with masses of space and volume for size (and a flybridge!), then you must pay attention to “Solent Eagle”.

It is little surprise that these Transpac 32s were imported into the UK by the same company that dealt with Fleming Yachts – this really feels like a mini-Fleming. She has a proper wheelhouse, galley in the saloon, cosy aft cockpit and doors to each side deck – so she is ever so versatile.

Her present owners (she is in her fourth ownership from new) have enjoyed improving her – with a new bow-thruster, recent batteries, re-upholstery and only light usage. She has timeless lines, and is a truly cute sight on the water.

Owner’s Comments

“We believe the Transpac produced some 96 Eagle 32s, before making larger boats. They were built by Transpacific Marine Co. Ltd. in Taiwan. Allan Taylor Marine (ATMAR) of Hamble Point imported 5 or 6 sisterships in 1991, including hull 3235 (now known as “SOLENT EAGLE”) which was first launched in 1992. UK specification, Owners Manual and 1991 Motor Boat & Yachting reports are all available.

These particular boats are used extensively in the USA on the inland waterways or the more open waters and sounds of Alaska. They are ideal for coastal or inland waterways use (most have a short mast, but this can be easily lowered (or removed) to give an air height of around 3.2m) and they are suitable for open waters too. Previous Owner George Bibby confirmed that this boat had been cross Channel many times.

We bought the boat 5 years ago in Falmouth and moved her to Lymington and undertook a full refit to get her into the shape we feel happy with; this includes (receipts available):

  • Engine overhaul (including heat exchanger cleaned and new fuel pump), cutlass bearing and stern-gland replaced with Tides water-lubricated seal system.
  • Vetus bow-thruster fitted (controls to lower and upper helms).
  • Gel repairs and paint/polish.
  • Flexible gas pipe and regulator changed.
  • New Mikuni diesel-fired heater fitted.
  • Seacocks serviced, or changed, as required.
  • Heads piping changed and Tek Tanks polypropylene holding tank fitted.
  • Underwater re-epoxy.
  • Instrument check and overhaul including GPS and Raymarine instruments.
  • Electrical works including full check adding duplicate engine gauges at flybridge helm (tacho, alarms, oil and temperature), and fitting engine exhaust overheating alarm and duplicate anchor windlass controls at lower helm.
  • New forward cushions.
  • Canvas covers for hatches and flybridge console.
  • Mast rigging, warps and fenders replaced.
  • Safety equipment updated.
  • Varnish-work.
