3200 St. Tropez
Length w/ Pulpit:
The 3200 St. Tropez was among the first American-built cruisers to sport the then-new Euro look that was fast becoming a trend in 1980s sportboat design. Some 1,700 of these inboard cruisers were built making the St. Tropez the most successful Wellcraft cruiser ever. Below, the mauve-colored fabrics, gray carpeting, and brushed aluminum trim was a clear departure from the traditional teak-trimmed interiors of other family cruisers. There are berths for sixa notable accomplishment since there is no aft cabin. The St. Tropezs single-level cockpit is arranged with a double helm seat forward, a companion seat opposite, and removable bench seating aft. This is, incidentally, a very uncluttered cockpit with room for some light-tackle fishing. There were several cosmetic updates over the years, but the most signification modification came in 1988 with the addition of a new swim platform and transom door. On the downside, the engine room is a tight fit, and the interior decor is way dated by todays standards. Standard 260hp V-drive gas engines cruise the 3200 St. Tropez at 2021 knots (about 28 knots top), and optional 340hp MerCruisers cruise in the mid 20s and reach a top speed of over 30 knots.
