Very spacious for a 38 foot boat brought about by her deck saloon design. Plenty of storage under seats and in the galley. Unusual Nav Station located just off aft cabin and accesible by an additional companionway from cockpit as well as from inside. Good sized cockpit. Upholstery ok though in need of cleaning as this vessel has been closed up for some time.

Broker's Comments

A good sized 38 foot deck saloon yacht offering better than average accommodation space. What she needs is someone to look after her again, spend time aboard mending some basic wood trim and update the electronics if needed, but fundamentally she's a good one.
