Hey Matthieu,

I ***think*** the answer is as follows:

The only difference between the 31's and 32's that were built ***in Japan*** was the clipper bow and the cockpit arrangement.

However, sometime post 1972 (?) Far East moved to California and produced yachts there. I think the Mariners we see with factory 1) external chainplates; 2) aluminum masts; and 3) fitted, white window coverings (as opposed to a simple metal plate over the outside of the window…like mine) are all US made. I don't think any Japanese made 31/32 had these features out of the factory.

All three of the yachts you reference (and yours too) fit that description, right???

and whether you call it a 31 or 32 has zero practical significance. To Steve's point, the waterline is the same, the beam is the same, and thus the interior volume (not to mention layout) is the same in both boats. According to the specs, the 31 has exaclty 1 foot more LOA, and it's all in that last foot of the bow.

Good luck monetizing that. :)

typing mistake:

this line, "the 31 has exaclty 1 foot more LOA..." should have been "the 32 has exactly 1 foot more LOA..."
