Hi there! I'm mainly writing to introduce myself, and get the ball rolling in meeting other Vision 32' owners. My name is Amanda. My husband and I used to live aboard a 38' Ohlson in the USVI area, which was our first boat together. If you know the boat, you know it was built as a sturdy, blue water racer, and not a very comfortable live-aboard cruiser. We sold it back in 2010, and came back to California to regroup and try again later with a better foundation, and better-for-us boat. Something more comfortable to live on, and easier for us to putz around the Caribbean in. Well, later is here and we're ready to buy another boat and try this again. I like the Vision first off because of the price to space ratio. I like that it has a full-time, sizeable table, full bed in the aft, plenty of comfortable (looking) seating, an inside shower, and flat-floor access to the galley. Also, the smaller the boat, the less the maintenance costs (hopefully), storage/haul-out/etc. I also like that the reviews seem to be pretty favorable. Not too many complaints from actual owners. The only consistent negative I can find, is some people think it's slow-- but having come from the Ohlson which didn't like to go anywhere without at least 20 knots of wind, I think the Vision would be perfectly fine for us. If we wanted to go "super fast" we'd buy a power boat. Anyway, I'm sure I'll have more questions as time and research goes on, but I've got a couple I'm wondering about now. First-- what are the dimensions of the aft bed? Is it full length? 6'6"? We have an RPod Travel trailer and the bed is a short queen at 6', which is annoying to try and sleep in if you want to stretch out and have room for your pillow not crammed from wall to wall. That extra half foot would be nice-- or just somewhere to hang your feet over. Second-- For anyone with a RIB, how do you like to store or tow your dinghy for those little bit longer passages? We may end up buying on the East coast and island hopping it down to Puerto Rico. I've seen some pictures of V32s with davits, and other people towing up on the sugar scoop. What do you think? A RIB is a must have for us in the Caribbean. I don't like getting drenched, and I like to be able to climb in and out from the water, and also plane with 2 people. I'm also open to any other comments, advice, etc. if you feel like posting- or links to other articles/threads. I'm pretty good at Google-Fu, but I like all the help I can get. Thanks so much for taking the time to read!
