|The J32/S32 was a completely new model from Storebro. It was built instead of the SRC 310 drawn by Winfried Wilke, which was not wanted by shipyard owner Hans Mellström. Originally the boat was announced as SRC 320, later the name was changed to J32/S32. The Argentinean German Frers was used as designer for the first time. He designed a boat that should remind of the historical lines of the Solö built in 1951.
From 1999, the ship was replaced by the model-maintained version, the J34/S34.
The experience gained from the construction of the SRC 90E flowed into the development of the hull. The keel area of the hull was reinforced in such a way that it was possible to sail the boat directly onto the beach. An option that was sufficiently addressed in the promotional videos.
An innovation was the option to order the hull in different colours ex shipyard. The most popular colour was blue followed by yellow. Some ships were later repainted according to the owner's wishes.
The shipyard also showed flexibility in the interior design. Instead of the familiar darker mahogany wood, it could be ordered in lighter birch.
The propulsion forms of this ship were also new. While Storebro had mainly relied on shaft propulsion in recent years, this model offered a choice between jet propulsion (J32) and sterndrive (S32). The customers, however, obviously preferred the jet propulsion. Only three ships were equipped with sterndrive.
Although the jet drives do not require gears for reverse and regulate this solely by the position of the flaps, the shipyard installed additional Hurth gears. This offered the possibility of flushing blocked drive trains free by running in reverse.
Engines from Volvo Penta or Yanmar were available for the J32/S32. The first models were offered with Volvo Penta TAMD42WJ-A/KAMD44P. Later, the ships were equipped with Yanmar 6LP-STE diesels as standard. The first two sterndrive-equipped ships received Volvo Penta KAD44P-EDC, the third Yanmar 6LP-STZE with Mercruiser sterndrive.
Manoeuvring with the jet drives was at least unfamiliar to the inexperienced driver. The shipyard took this into account by offering a two-day course for two people, which concluded with a "Driver's Certificate".
