Broker's Comments

A true cruiser racer of outstanding pedigree, this is one of the best examples of a Sigma 38 that we have seen. Only three private owners from new, never chartered or raced, she has only ever been used as a family cruising yacht. Her present owner has kept up a meticulous programme of upgrade and maintainence and she is offered for sale with a comprehensive inventory.
