Dragonfly 32

This Dragonfly 32 comes in a modern and dynamic design - setting new standards in both function and design. The perfect combination between family cruising and racing - also offshore. Explore your dreams!

The Dragonfly 32 fills in the gap between the Dragonfly 28 and the Dragonfly 40. The Dragonfly 32 appears in two versions, the Dragonfly 32 Touring with standard rig, and the more powerful version with a taller rig, the Dragonfly 32 Evolution. The Dragonfly 32 accommodates a crew of 5 to 7 persons.

“At 10-12 knots and 30° to the apparent wind, tacking close to the shore, the Dragonfly gave us a real demonstration! Some monohulls, close-hauled and grinding the winches, were quickly left behind”

Design & Performance

The Dragonfly 32 comes in a modern- and dynamic design, setting high standards in both function and design.

The Dragonfly 32 is offered in two versions - the ‘Touring’ version with a shorter rig and the more powerful ‘Evolution’ version with a taller rig and our wave piercing float design for the ultimate performance. The floats are designed even bigger, compared to our previous designs, which makes the boat more powerful and faster, but still safe.

The Dragonfly 32 comes standard with a 21 Hp Yanmar inboard engine – 30 Hp Yanmar inboard engine is optional. The boat is equipped with a tiller as standard, but the cockpit has been designed and developed for wheel steering as well.

The impression of space below deck is striking. The boat offers full standing headroom of 1.93 m in the main cabin - 1.87 m in the toilet section. 

The Dragonfly 32 comes with 6 full-size berths, all of 2 m length. Up front, there is a double V-berth, and the aft cabin offers a comfortable double berth. You get access to the aft cabin by sliding the companionway steps. In the main cabin, two bigger size easy-foldable single berths offer accommodation for two. The interior layout comes as standard in maple wood, whereas the luxurious elm wood interior is optional. The main dinette table can seat 6 to 8 people comfortably. The galley is located by the companionway and is highly functional with good ergonomics. There are numerous cupboards; the lockers are equipped with clever guillotine fastenings which rationalize the stowage solutions and contribute to the overall clarity when sailing.

The Dragonfly 32 has a nice big cockpit, which offers plenty of space and conviviality for the whole crew. All halyards and lines are led to the cockpit for easy and safe handling - perfect also for shorthanded sailing. The optional sprayhood and cockpit tent turns the cockpit into a genuine exterior saloon - an articulated bimini to provide protection from the sun is also available. In harbor, a monohull's berth is sufficient thanks to the famous Swing-Wing system, which Quorning Boats introduced more than 30 years ago. 

The Dragonfly 32 offers fun and safe family sailing, it is a pleasure in use - and has potential for serious racing and safe fast sailing at the same time.

To inform and illustrate recommended service, maintenance, and refitting on an older Dragonfly, we have drawn this general information sheet. Rough elements, like strong winds and wave conditions, strong saltwater and UV do have some impact on the boat after a long sailing life.

We strongly recommend servicing and changing vital parts on your boat according to our recommendations. This information overrules any other former information you may have, as the following is based on updated knowledge.


Visual check of all cables is still required when changing the rigging. When trailering the boat, we strongly recommend focusing on side stay cables, as these easily bend when stepping the mast. Bended side stay cables near the terminal may cause the side stay cable to break.

On all Dragonflys, please regularly check the forestay cable in the top by the terminal. When furling, the spinnaker halyard may block the forestay, which can cause failure of the forestay.


On all Dragonflys, we recommend re-stitching (sewing) along the seems of the trampolines every 6-7 years (in climates with strong UV, every 5 years). Normally, our clients change their trampolines after 10-12 years use.

Float Deck teflon pad rings

On Dragonflys built after 1989, the white 5 mm Teflon pad rings on the float deck need to be changed every 13-15 years – this is neither critical nor structural. For easy change of these pads/rings, you just bolt off the floats from the wings.


Over the years, Quorning Boats has used the riggings links, so-called Quick-Links, in the Dragonfly production. When replacing these, it is of utmost importance to purchase links of same high quality or similar products carrying same strength (working load). Many products look the same, but do not carry the same strength.

Ordering parts

Original parts can be ordered at Quorning Boats at aftersales@dragonfly.dk

Common spare parts can be shipped within two weeks, whereas special parts and/or custom-made parts usually are served within 6-8 weeks.


Caution for all painted surfaces on the boat and mast

Painted surfaces may not be covered with Plastic or other non-breathable materials, as water and condensation can not be lead away from the painted surfaces, and these are not able to dry.
When water is stuck between the Paint and a non-breathable or non-ventilated material, blisters can occur between the paint and the gelcoat or the carbon sections of the mast.
Due to these circumstances, the permanent use of Ex. Matt-Fenders cannot be recommended, as water and Condensation can also get stuck between these and the hull, and lead to blisters in the Paint.

Quorning Boats can not be held responsible for Blisters in the paint occurred due covering the painted surfaces with non-breathable materials.


Parts ordered at Quorning Boats Denmark, will be produced in originally designed materials. Should you choose to order from other suppliers, please check that the same kind of materials are used – especially on the waterstays and other rigging parts, where stronger Dyeform cables are needed.
