The 3207 sure is a classic boat.  I have it's replacement, a 325.  Not sure but I think the 3207 has more room in it than mine.

to gtburns: While you are looking, check info for Cooper Yachts' PROWLER 9M: 30'x12'; 2 flybridge models: aft cabin [fore and aft staterooms], and open cockpit [fore stateroom]; full head with separate shower stall; excellent sidedecks and full safety rails; extremely well-crafted teak interiors and quite carefuooy installed electrical and plumbing systems: made about 1985 to 1991 in B.C. Canada.

We have a Carver 3207. There just isn't another boat like it in it's price range. A very light boat at 12000 pounds. That and a low deadrise results in a bumpy ride on the Chesapeake. Our other boat (for sale) is a 30' sundancer with an excellent ride but wouldnt go back to that type of boat again. We can cruise at 21-22 knots turning 3400 and pretty good on fuel. We travel with 3-4 kids and have plenty of room. Would like the 3607 but it just won't get up and go like the 32. Watch for blistering. A common problem on mid 80's Carvers. We love ours. Hope this helps you make a decision.

We have a 1985 3207 and enjoy the roominess of the boat.  If your choice is between the 3007 and 3207, I would go the 3207 for the extra room, storage, aft head, better usefullness of the galley, greater room on the aft deck, and the general higher quality of finish.  These are all things that will make a difference over time.  I agree with all noted by carverdbm, but disagree regarding the ride.  We cruse the big waters of Lake Michigan and actually enjoy the softness of the ride.  There is a definite feeling the hull slices the waves.  For as much get up and go this boat has, it's ride feels like a heavier boat to me.  We also like the verticle design of the 3007, 3207, and 3607.  It is nice not being below decks all the time as so many boats have you today.  It gives you a lot of daylight in the salon and lots less potential discomfort when below underway.  And the flybridge is nice and high.  Whichever Carver you get, it is a good idea to re-do the bottom as soon as it is needed.  Sandblasting to the fiberglass, fixing any blisters (we had only two smaller than my little fingernail), coating with epoxy and then anti-fowling.  It is costly, but you know what you are sitting on and you will sleep better for sure.

We love our boat

Ron

To Fellow 3207 Owners

I have a small but annoying rain leak in my aft cabin on the starboard side about 4-5 inches under the forward port window.  I have tried caulking the port and the stanchions above the port on the aft deck.  Nothing so far works.  I am wondering if the leak is occurring at the hull/topside joint.  Since there is no moisture around the port and starts a few inches below, this could be at the joint.

Has anyone had this particular leak and found/fixed the cause?

Thanks!

Ron
