Attalia 32
Deep draft

To replace Rush, Jeanneau and designers have decided to not follow the IOR rules and offer a sailboat with fuller rear hull shape. The interior volume of the Attalia increases and the toilet and aft cabin appears. The accommodation is modern and saloon provides panoramic vision through two front windows.
