|The Nauticat 38 pilothouse ketch is a proven blue water liveaboard cruiser, and this 1979 model is now for sale.
A very generous interior and exterior volume yacht that sails well is hard to find but these do all of that. A massive aft cabin which in itself creates a large al fresco entertaining area up on deck.
Easily driven from one of the two helm stations with excellent vision at both.
The accommodation layout is flexible and can offer large double beds or table and seating on two levels.
Near new sails, new upholstery, new gearbox and good servicing on the reliable Ford Lehman. These boats offer much more room than your average 38 footer. Heavy duty davit system is well thought out for the tender stowage. Hard to buy better size for value and condition.
The vessel is a production build manufactured by Sitala Yachts of Finland with over 1,000 hulls built and still in production today. She is fabricated from moulded single skin "E" Glass reinforcements set in polyester resin matrix. Some composite core material has been used in the deck and pilothouse for added stiffness. The hull and deck are mechanically bonded.
A hardwood timber rubbing strake provides some docking protection for the topsides and a fixed stainless steel framed swim platform with teak planking is fitted at the transom.
Located locally near our sales office and ready to inspect. Motivated vendor is moving inland and needs to see her go to a new loving owner. Inspection available anytime.
