"Of all the production yachts built in Australia, the Northshore 38 is probably the best known and most successful. The Northshore 38 has been around since 1983 and is still a very popular cruiser/racer to this day.
To last so long in the extremely competitive yachting scene, Northshore Yachts has to be doing something right.
The Northshore 38 was designed by Hank Kaufman in 1982. The first boat was produced at Northshore Yachts' Mona Vale, Sydney factory, as were all subsequent yachts until 1995. The Northshore 38 won the prestigious Boat of the Year award in 1986.

Characteristics of the Northshore 38 that haven't changed over the years are the slender, easily driven hull and the single-spreader, 3/4 rig, with deck-stepped mast and skeg-hung rudder. As far as Sydney Yachting Centre can ascertain, all 110 Northshore 38s and 380s that were produced since 1983 are still sailing; testimony to the exacting construction standards employed by Northshore Yachts. Some have cruised in the South Pacific and every Sydney to Hobart entry list since the early 1980s has had at least one Northshore 38 in it. Two were entered in the horrific 1998 event, finishing among the 40 surviving boats out of an original list of 140 yachts.

Post-1984 Northshore 38s and 380s are moulded using vinyl ester resin in the first layer, or have a full vinyl ester lay-up, and all Sydney Yachting Centre boats have epoxy primer beneath the original anti-fouling.
NS38s are noted for their resistance to osmosis. The hull to deck moulding join is FRP strapped, using 12-ounce cloth from stem to stern. The interior moulds and bulkheads are attached to the hull using eight-ounce cloth. All plywood is marine grade or structural 'A'. Keel bolts, nuts and washers are 316L stainless steel.
The absence of a port-side quarter berth allows for a huge cockpit locker. " - Boatsales Used Boat Review 2006 - Allan Whiting

This Northshore 38 is no exception. She has been lovingly looked after by all owners over the years and the current owner has her fully set up and fitted out for extended live aboard blue water cruising. It has the lead keel extension and rear transom step modifications to make life afloat easier, and an extensive sail wardrobe for offshore performance. See below for full specifications of this fine vessel. Please contact us for a viewing.
