32' (9.88m) Wanderer - Wandering Star
The Nimble Wanderer is a combination of traditional quality and craftsmanship and the best of today's technology and materials.
- New Bern North Carolina United States
- Fiberglass Hull
The Nimble Wanderer was designed by Ted Brewer with traditional esthetics and sturdy construction. With only 3' of draft and low bridge clearance this rugged little pocket cruiser can explore many areas inaccessible by vessels with similar comforts and amenities. She cruises at 8 knots (@ 2000 rpm) burning only 1.2 gallon per hour for a range of over 500 miles. The Wanderer is designed to be easily transported by trailer so she can explore inland lakes as well.
Wandering Star has been continually upgraded and kept in top notch shape. The current owners have equipped her very well to do the Great Loop voyage, with bow thruster, electronics including chart-plotter, sounder, AIS, VHF, autopilot and much more. Please see full listing for all the details including video and 360 photos. Wandering Star is available to see by appointment in New Bern North Carolina.

For over 30 years Lars has been working with and sailing on a wide variety of sail, power and commercial vessels. He hopes to put this experience to use by helping to take the hassle out of purchasing or selling your next vessel.Lars started sailing with his father on the Chesapeake Bay and small ponds around Seaford, Delaware. After serving in the National Guard he traveled extensively with his brother, Carl, on their 28’ sloop and began restoring boats and working in boatyards around the Florida Keys. He provided everything from bottom paint and repairs to high-tech marine topside coatings, electrical wiring and sailboat rigging. During this time, he also crewed and skippered on many vessels including a trans-Atlantic voyage in 1992, and as 1st Mate for a year aboard the 79′ day charter schooner “Jolly Rover’ in Lewes, DE and St. Pete Beach, FL.
Always fascinated by the art of sail making, Lars accepted an internship at Quantum Sails in Marathon, FL where he learned about traditional handwork, high tech sail cloth, sail shape and yacht racing. Sail making led to canvas work and eventually to Fountain Power Boats where he supervised the design and construction of exterior canvas products. Then on to West Palm Beach, he worked on various yacht canvas projects before settling in Wilmington, NC to start his own sail loft/canvas shop. Lars and his wife, Carrie operated the store for 6 years.
After 20 years in sails and canvas, it was time for something new. In 2016 Lars and Carrie closed their business to pursue a carreer in yacht sales. They sold their house and moved aboard their 43’ Gulfstar with their three daughters. Lars has recently completed training to become a certified yacht broker and is ready to work with you. Weather buying, selling or trading your power or sailing vessel, Lars is committed to providing you the best possible experience.
