NOTES
Though the photo is poor, it shows the GALAXY 32 as the first example of the 'gun turret'/flush deck used by the designer on a number of later boats (though a standard coach roof was also offered).
It is likely that the first boats were made by Beetle Boats of RI (. (became part of American Boatbuilding Corp. -1958?)
These molds were sold to Metalmast Marine in CT that turned out 5 more boats. The last known hull was delivered in 1972. All in all, the GALAXY 32 was built in very small numbers.
Some time later, Paceship Yachts of Canada used this same tooling to build the PACESHIP 32/TRIPP 32. (Similar to the GALAXY but with a more traditional extended coach roof, a modified keel, among other changes.)
