    Super high-quality German-built deck saloon cruising yacht from 2009, making very clever use of space to provide comfortable accommodation with lots of storage.


    Sirius Yachts is as a low volume, high quality builder of deck saloon cruising yachts. The yachts are hand built using the highest quality materials. The Sirius 32DS combines innovative design to maximise the use of space and high quality joinery work creating a luxurious cruising yacht which feels far larger than her 10m length. With two double cabins, a nice linear galley and elevated deck saloon with a well sheltered cockpit the design is ideally suited to cruising in northern climes.

    Still with her first owners the Sirius 32DS MOONDOG was collected by her owner from the factory in Germany. Under the current ownership she has crossed the north sea several times cruising the waters around Scotland as well as the Baltic Sea and Norwegian coast. She has proven herself to be a capable and dependable cruising yacht with the self-tacking ‘Solent’ rig ideally suited to short handed cruising. Professionally maintained throughout her life the comprehensive inventory highlights include:
    • Deck saloon layout with full internal helm station
    • Double glazed deck house windows
    • Volvo Penta D1-30 marine diesel engine.
    • Volvo Penta 130S saildrive unit

    Lying afloat on her berth in Ardfern Yacht Centre the Sirius 32DS MOONDOG is available for immediate viewing by prior appointment.


    Sirius Yachts – built by German craftsmen, with love, since 1971. From the family-owned boat builder that invented the phrase “deck-saloon”

    Sirius Yachts offer a range of go-anywhere deck saloon sailboats with hand-crafted custom-built interiors. Every yacht is available with either a single fin keel, lifting-keel or twin keels, giving you the opportunity to explore new cruising grounds in comfort.

    In a Sirius deck-saloon you cruise in comfort. You are sheltered from the elements and can appreciate your surroundings whatever the weather. You can look out over your anchorage or harbour through large windows in a beautiful, handcrafted mahogany interior.

    Sirius Yachts are very well built using only the best construction materials. The high standard of craftmanship is second to none. You are welcome to visit our boat yard and see for yourself the care and attention to detail that makes every Sirius special.

    Every yacht is designed and customised for her owner and no two yachts from our German factory are identical. There are hundreds of details that distinguish the way we build a Sirius from other sailboat manufacturers.
