We are getting close to closing on a 32 Fly Pointe that was located in Coutuit/Barnstable. It has a low hour 315 Cummins diesel. Does anyone have any information on this boat ?

Thanks,

I bought a 31BHM/32 FLyepoint this spring. These boats are tanks!!! I put a new transducer in and the hull is just over an inch thick of solid glass. I only have a 210 Cummins. Most of these had 210’s unless re-powered. Slow and steady baby. Cruise 13-14 knts at 2350. Took longer to get places but I had a lot more $$ in my pockets when I got there.

Many thanks for the comments and feedback from other Flye Point owners. Seems like they built a great boat and very appreciative of the opportunity to own one.

I find that dri deck stuff in the cockpit rough as hell to walk on barefoot.

Gorgeous boat though.

JPL, you wouldn't bi interested in adding a flybridge? I bought a Flypoint 32 this spring as well, and removed it. Mine is same style as the first one only is finished with a lot more teak. It's stored inside and comes complete. I'd love to see another Flypoint owner get it. Cheap cheap as well. Thanks

I don't have any info on your boat, but I've got a 1980 Keith Otis 31' BHM, which nowadays has a 315hp 6BTA. They are great hulls and go pretty well w/ that power. Those engines are fairly loud right under you feet, so soundown helps a lot.

interior

MDI here are a couple interior pics.... Only had 550 original hours and not one rod holder on the boat. She's simple, clean, doesn’t have a lot of systems..... blast it with the hose and watch everyone else on the dock shammie for 2 hours.

JPL, mine is a 1990 with 1300 hours. Took a lot of work to patch things up after removing the FB. Same motor as yours, running the exact same numbers. I have replaced all belts and hoses, and replaced the heat exchanger as well. Then I pulled all my anchor chain and rode out and discovered no floor in my anchor locker. WTF? Common bilge for all that anchor gurry? So I glassed in a floor, and installed a locker drain that drains to the outside. I'm a sport salmon fisher, 2.5 to 1 TD, 1 3/4 shaft turning a 26 square wheel and can only slow her down to 4.5 knots, dragging 5 five gallon buckets only slows me down another knot, can't believe the torque, thank goodness the coho like a fast troll! Still to fast for the chinook, so gonna install a trolling valve over the winter. Hali fishing on the hook is paradise ! She very fishy. Also I'm planning some sort of visor that will work itself into like a inch and a half overhang on the sides. We get a lotta rain here and I can't stand all the water running right down the sides of the windows. Can't be good for them. I love the boat, only complaint is wish she was bigger...... Good luck with yours

JPL - that would be great. Interesting that my brother lives in the Newport, RI area and said he also saw a sistership. Thanks!

Offshore31 - thanks! I will send you a PM with contact info and maybe over a beer we can compare notes and I can share the winter plans.
