A design reminiscent of the highly successful Maine Lobster Boat, the Cheviot 32 is a day boat or weekend cruiser. Proven hull form delivers a fast, smooth ride with excellent handling and sea keeping qualities.
The cabin layout includes two berths, head, galley, fridge and comfortable seating. For those who appreciate the artisanship of an all timber hull the Cheviot 32 fits the bill well.
The mechanically fastened, epoxy sheathed hull, combined with a traditional, solid wooden cabin construction and laid decks, distinguish the Cheviot 32 from the ever growing sea of stainless and plastic. The efficient hull design paired with the Yanmar 6BY2 engine delivers smooth, clean, fast acceleration, excellent performance, quiet operation and fuel efficiency. The 2.9-litre turbocharged Yanmar produces 260hp at 4000 rpm while weighing just 362 kgs.

The Cheviot 32 was part of our range from 2004-2012. Chevymaid was the last boat built in 2012. We have since optimized the experience of handling and cruising in these boats, and have upgraded the Cheviot 32 to the Shearwater 38. These images were taken by Will Baillieu while cruising Bass Strait in 2014.
