This Maxum 3200 is a great couples or family cruiser. The owner has taken very good care of the boat. It's very clean, exceptionally comfortable and ready to cruise. One of the only 3200 you will see with a trailer. The trailer is a 12k investment on its own and saves owners on a boat load on storage costs. It also opens up a whole new world of cruising for the adventures owner.
This is the description of the boat by Chris Caswell of Boats.com
When Maxum set out to add this queen to their line, they listened to what owners wanted, using the services of such prestigious research firms as J.D. Power & Associates and Hebert Research. Potential buyers wanted a boat that was a second home, with all the amenities you'd find in a weekend beach house. They wanted simplicity from a maintenance standpoint, but they also wanted a level of elegance and luxury you'd expect from a waterfront condo.
The 3200 SCR fills those needs perfectly, with full headroom, two separate staterooms with plenty of privacy, a full-sized head with shower, and a galley capable of gourmet meals for a boatload of guests.
The starting point is the MaxuPlane Hull, a modified V-bottom (15.75deg transom deadrise) with reverse chines to throw spray aside and full length strakes to soften the rough water ride. With solid hand-laid fiberglass construction using premium isophthalic gelcoats for blister prevention, fully encapsulated wood stringers that carry the engine loads, and a rigid stringer system to support the cabin soles and interior, the 3200 is a solid piece of work. When you thump the hull, there's no flex and no hollow sound. Maxum is so confident of their construction that their five-year warranty is now transferable to future owners, which adds appreciably to the resale value.
Considering the 11-foot beam of the 3200, describing the cockpit as spacious is a masterpiece of understatement. First, there's a built-in transom platform with hidden ladder, rinse-off shower, and lockers to stow fenders and docklines. Open the walk-through door to the cockpit and you're in the entertainment area of the boat, with an L-shaped conversation area to starboard and a removable bench seat to port. Tucked to one side is the wet bar with pressurized water, an optional U-Line refrigerator and counter space for hors d'oeuvres.
Just forward is the working area, with a pair of thickly-upholstered and individually-adjustable seats for skipper and companion. Designed for maximum visibility is a curved dash with full instrumentation on two levels as well as an array of well-marked rocker switches on a panel beside the stainless wheel. Power-assisted rack and pinion steering, fist-sized Quicksilver single-lever engine controls and a Standard Eclipse VHF radio round out the command center. Overhead, the radar arch serves not only as a styling accent and mounting point for antennae, but it also hides recessed cockpit lighting and speakers for the stereo system.
Since the cockpit uses the entire width of the boat, access to the foredeck is through an opening windshield, using a molded stair next to the helm, which makes going forward both safe and easy. A sun pad runs the length of the foredeck between handrails, a welded stainless-steel rail completely encloses the deck and becomes a pulpit over a bow platform with an anchor roller and, on our test boat, an optional searchlight. The non-slip surface gives a grip without removing skin, and there are enough mooring cleats to handle anchors, springlines or towing.
The companionway hatch swings neatly aside and, after three steps on a curving staircase, you'll find yourself in your weekend getaway, surrounded by soft fabrics, muted colors, and sumptuous upholstery. With soft natural skylighting from the twin Bomar hatches overhead as well as the five opening ports, the 3200 has plenty of light and air. The pale ash trim is a pleasant respite from traditional teak or mahogany, and adds to the look of fine craftsmanship.
The galley is to port, with an angled counter backed up by an upper level counter for storage. The Norcold AC/DC refrigerator/freezer is tucked under the counter, a microwave is built into the cabinetry, and an Origo alcohol/110-volt stove has a glass cover for added counter area when not in use. The double stainless-steel sink with arched faucet makes cleaning easy, and there's plenty of locker space for dishes, glassware and utensils.
Opposite the galley is a raised dinette which, if you're forced to carry a third couple, converts to a double berth. Forward is a large five-sided berth (with an immense storage bin underneath) and privacy is achieved by solid accordion doors that partition off the area.
The enclosed head, opposite the companionway stairs, is entirely molded in fiberglass for easy cleaning. A built-in vanity with counter, large storage cabinet, and a shower provide all the necessities.
Tucked under the raised helm area is an aft cabin, which doubles as a den by day with a pair of couches and a table. By night, however, it converts to a spacious double berth separated by a folding door for privacy. With a large opening port facing the cockpit, there's no shortage of light and air, making this a useful guest or children's cabin.
Creature comforts aside, the 3200 SCR provides solid performance in addition to being a floating condo. The standard engine package is a pair of MerCruiser 5.7-liter 250-horsepower V-8s linked to Bravo II stern drives, which should give you all the speed you need. Optional power plants include the 7.4-liter MerCruiser with twin-prop Bravo III drives or MerCruiser 7.3-liter diesels, also with the Bravo III stern drives.
But I was quite satisfied with the basic 5.7 MerCruisers, which gave us a speed of just over 37 mph with three people aboard and a full fuel load. The factory specs suggest an optimum top speed of nearly 39 mph, but we were more interested in our comfortable cruising speed of 25 mph at 3000 rpm, which provided a thrifty 1.6-mile-per-gallon fuel consumption that would give the 3200 a range of about 235 miles with a 20% safety margin. Even better than the mile-eating cruise speed is the relatively low rpm, which should keep these engines healthy for a long time.
Underway, the 3200 was solid and predictable. The steeply sweptback windshield kept the cockpit breeze to a minimum, and Maxum provides a Bimini top with full side and back curtains as standard equipment, so you're all-weather equipped. In fact, that's one thing I've noticed about all the Maxum's I've tested: they're delivered with a full array of equipment that most builders tack onto the options list. That simplifies the Maxum production line, of course, but it also makes life easy for Maxum owners, because the factory already knows what they need. The list of standard equipment is extensive, including such items as depth sounder and VHF radio, Ritchie compass, cockpit carpeting, radar arch, hot and cold pressurized water, Bimini top, microwave, battery charger, 110-volt AC shore power, Bennett trim tabs, and even pillows for the berths. In fact, the option list is just five items long: air-conditioning, generator (5 kilowatts), spotlight, anchor windlass, and television/VCR entertainment package."
