THE MOST RACING ORIENTED MODEL BY THE YARD
The Mistress 32 was built during 1969 -1974 in a total of 110 hulls. The Mistress was departure from the other models in the range in the sense that Mistress 32 was the most racing oriented boat ever built by the yard.
FROM THE HARRY HALLBERG ERA
The Mistress 32 was developed at the Harry Hallberg era. The boat is the most racing oriented model ever built by the yard. Despite a nice interior, this was a really fast boat. She was a successful IOR half tonner. Boat number 1 was called "Hambo" and did well in the Half Ton Cup 1968 and won both the Baltic Race and the Skaw Race. However, the year after, 1969, another half tonner by another boat yard, Scampi, was launched, and bet everything else on the race course. Within racing, it is not enough to be number two.
HER ELGEANT LINES MAKE HER ATTRACTIVE STILL TODAY
So the yard decided not to go on with racing boats, which only lasted a few years on the new boat market, and go for long distance cruisers only instead. So 1974 a new cruising boat in the same size, with windshield, was introduced; the Monsun 31. That is why the Mistress 32 was built no longer than for six years, until 1974. The elegant lines of the Mistress 32 make her attractive still today.
