The newest model in the Solace Boats lineup to date, the new 32 CS combines hardcore fishing features and luxurious touches that every member of the family will love. This 32-foot 7-inch center console features a vacuum-infused carbon fiber and vinyl ester-epoxy resin laminate construction to ensure strength and durability while minimizing weight. It sports an iconic, Dougherty shearline and an in-stem anchor that preserves the stylish aesthetics and minimizes snagged lines and cast nets.

The variable-deadrise, double-stepped V-hull features 21 degrees of deadrise at the transom for an efficient, smooth ride. Twin-outboard power choices range from a pair of Yamaha F300s to a pair of Mercury 450R V-8s. Buyers can also opt for a Yamaha Helm Master EX system or Mercury Joystick Piloting.

Twin 30-gallon livewells reside in each of the stern quarters, and both are pressurized and feature tempered glass lids. There are three insulated fish lockers—a 176-quart box in the transom, as well as 140- and 220-quart lockers under the sole of the aft cockpit. The level, self-bailing deck features a diamond nonskid sole for excellent fishability. An inward-opening side-entry door on the port side of the aft cockpit eases boarding and hauling aboard big tuna or swordfish.

A workstation abaft the helm seating includes a countertop with Corian cutting boards, freshwater sink and faucet, built-in tool holders, tackle drawers and drink station. A custom Frigid Rigid 105-quart fiberglass cooler tucks away and slides out from underneath the station. When pulled out and fitted with the upholstered cooler top, it doubles as an aft-facing seat.

The 32 CS helm is decked out with a pair of deluxe captain’s chairs with flip-up bolsters and arm rests. The helm face features a pair of Garmin 8616 flush-mount 16-inch multifunction displays and a VHF. An Airmar 500-watt chirp transducer with SideVu and ClearVu capabilities comes as standard equipment. Optional electronic upgrades include a Garmin radar, FLIR thermal imaging camera and a 1,000-watt transducer.

An integrated hardtop with a carbon-fiber support structure includes a full-height tempered-glass windshield and side windows. The windshield is electrically operated to fully open at the touch of a switch. Solace offers an optional cobia (stand-through) station with full controls for greater elevation while searching for fish.  


The step-down console interior provides 6 feet, 2 inches of headroom with teak entry steps, Chilewich cabin flooring, a vanity with a Corian counter, freshwater faucet and stainless-steel sink, wood-veneer cabinetry, and an electric marine toilet with an 18-gallon holding tank. A convertible forward berth offers overnighting comfort, and quickly converts with a flip-up rack to securely stow eight fishing rods.

Optional cabin upgrades include a 2,000-watt inverter, microwave, and two electrical outlets and a 12-volt 5,000 BTU air conditioning system.

On the luxury side, you’ll find an inviting contoured lounger for two atop the forward console and a recessed bow seating nook with built-in backrests. In a unique touch you might expect in a Stephen Dougherty-designed Solace boat, an optional forward-facing seat, with a removeable backrest, armrests and five rod holders, installs atop the transom.


Additional highlights of this Stephen Dougherty-designed boat include innovative features and options like the shade system, under-floor cabin extension that enables lockable rod storage, and designated spaces for many items you might carry onto your boat.
