Tumler is an OE 32 equipped for long trips. OE 32 has gained a well-deserved reputation for being a safe boat for offshore sailing. I have often received comments from people with more modern boats that it moves comfortably in large waves. Tumler is named after the toy man who always gets up when you overturn it.

Tumlers have been my home for long periods when I sailed Stockholm – Norway – Faroe Islands – Cape Verde – Caribbean – Greece. I have sailed myself half the time, including across the Atlantic.
The boat was ashore last January. Then I did a lot of maintenance and upgrades with the plan to use the boat for off shore sailing for several years to come. The plan until very recently was to continue sailing with Tumler in the eastern parts of the Mediterranean, which has characterized the maintenance of the boat. This makes Tumler a boat that does not require much time or money to take you on adventures.

The boat has a long keel, thus directional stable and a low risk of extensive damage if you run aground. Another detail that makes Tumler reliable is the aft-hung rudder with tiller that is mounted directly on the rudder. It therefore has few things that can break and the rudder is well protected behind the keel.

Tumler has some extra equipment to make the boat more adapted for sea sailing than the boats of the same model that have been used along coasts:
The spray hood has been replaced with a fiberglass dodger.
Life raft for four people.
There are stainless steel handles around the dodger so that you can safely walk forward to the foredeck, but also so that you have something to hold on to when you are standing in the cockpit.
To reduce the risk of collision, the boat is equipped with radar, passive radar reflector, active radar reflector with alarm and AIS receiver.
Jacklines along the entire boat allow you to be fastened with a safetyline when you go to or work on the foredeck.
Windvane from Aries.
Lee cloths in the bunks in the saloon.
According to previous owners, the mast is of a stronger type.


Deck and engine

In the bow is a furling genoa. It includes a storm jib and an extra genoa that can be placed on an inner bow. With two spinnaker poles, you can sail comfortably with a genoa on each side down wind if you prefer simple sail handling over the extra speed you get if you use the spinnaker.

In both bow and aft there are very strong cleats. Midships have cleats of a smaller dimension.
The anchor winch is controlled by a remote control with cable. The long anchor chain means that you can lie safer, even at greater depths.

The foredeck is large enough for the dinghy to be stored while sailing.

Steps on the mast allows you to easily get up and arrange things on the rig, even if you are alone on board. This reduces the risk of discovering damages late and get major problems. The mast top has windex and VHF antenna.

The mainsail has two reefs, lazyjacks and a sailcover.

To reduce friction and gain more power, the sails are hoisted and reefed at the mast. Five Andersen winches on the mast take care of the handling of halyards and reef lines.

Wooden handles go from the mast to the stainless steel handles at the dodger. Jacklines run along the entire length of the boat. On the dodger is a solar panel of 115 W.

The cockpit has teak on the floor and benches. A bimini provides shade on sunny days. A table can cover half the cockpit. Four cushions are included. Two two-speed winches at the cockpit handle the sheeting of the genoa.

There are two large storage compartments in the cockpit. One of them includes regulators for the solar panels (one for each solar panel), diesel heater, fire extinguisher, battery charger, water heater and access to the engine compartment. Despite this, there is plenty of space for storage.

The engine is freshwater cooled. Should the starter battery not be enough to start the engine, then there is a switch that connects the starter battery to the house bank. The engine compartment has an automatic fire extinguisher. The engine has a pre-filter with water separator to reduce the risk of engine problems. The engine has a pre-filter with a water separator.

In the cockpit there are filling holes for diesel and water. They have different colours to reduce the risk of filling in wrong tank. Rainwater that ends up on the starboard deck can be led down into the water tank. If you sail when it rains, you can easily collect rainwater on the mainsail instead.

In the stern there is an arch with two solar panels, wind turbine, GPS antenna, antenna for active radar reflector and radio antenna. The pushpit has a bracket for the outboard engine and a lifebuoy.

There is an autopilot that is placed directly on the tiller. At the stern is storage for propane.

Below deck

The companionway is strengthened to withstand both thieves and big waves. When you get into the boat, you have a pilot berth on the starboard side. Parts of the wall at the bed can be removed for access to the engine compartment.

On the starboard side there is also electrical controlpanel and navigation table. At the navigation table there is a plotter, VHF with AIS receiver and car radio. There are also two 12 V sockets and a 220 V connector that can be used when the boat has shore power.

The stairs can be removed to provide access to the engine compartment.

On the port side you will find a kitchen with a large refrigerator, sink with both fresh water and salt water and storage. The gas stove has two flames and follow the boat’s movements. The stove was bought in January 2022 and replaced the stove with an oven. The plan was to not have an oven to get more storage in the kitchen, but we have not had time to build it. This means that you can choose whether you should have storage, a dishwasher, insert a stove with an oven or use the space for something else. In the kitchen you will find another 220 V socket that can be used when you have shore power.

Handles go both on the starboard and port side of the ceiling in the saloon. The sofas are comfortable while sailing thanks to that they are narrow and have lee clothes. The backrests can be lifted if you want more space. The sofa on the port side can be converted into a double bed. There is one 12 V socket under one sofa.

The table has two table tops that can be folded out as needed and storage in the middle. Over the table hangs a kerosene lamp that creates a cosy atmosphere during rainy evenings. The sofas have storage. Under the floor is the water tank. The keel shape gives a lot of space for the tanks and therefore does not take up storage space for other things in sofas or other easily accessible spaces.

Further to the bow is the bathroom. There is a toilet with manual pump and tank that can be emptied both in the sea and through outlets on deck. There are sinks with faucet that can be used as a shower. There are handles in the ceiling. There are four lockers in the bathroom.

The whole forepeak can be made into a large bed. The bed has a large storage space, there is also storage under the floor. Along the walls are shelves. Above the feet are two lockers. In one of them is the engine for the windlass. This makes it more protected from water than if it had been in the anchor box.
