The Van De Stadt Helena 38 is a modern design with a charming traditional character. It is renowned for its excellent sailing performance, easy handling, and spacious interior. Designed as a strong and capable offshore cruiser, this is a vessel that is not only eye catching, but full of clever features that the most discerning yachtsman will appreciate. This vessel is an excellent example of the design and presents in absolutely immaculate condition. Professionally built in 2003 for the current owner, it has been cruised extensively around Australia and South East Asia. With its excellent performance it also completed the Darwin to Bali and Darwin to Ambon Yacht Races with much success. The vessel has been lovingly maintained by fastidious owners and underwent a significant refit in 2017 including NEW STANDING RIGGING, FULL HULL RESPRAY, NEW PROPELLOR, NEW SETTEE CUSHIONS, the list goes on! More recently the vessel has been fitted with a NEW 2020 Spray dodger and boom bag, and it presents in as new condition inside and out!

Stepping inside, the spacious interior of the vessel is well set up with the desirable two cabin layout. There is a private double cabin forward with inner spring mattress, and second private double aft with quality foam mattress. Both cabins have extensive storage for extended cruising. There are two single berths available in the saloon when extra accommodation is required. The freshly upholstered settees provide seating for 8 in comfort around the large timber dinette. The L Shaped galley is ideal for preparing meals whilst at sea, and features a 2 burner gas stove with grill and oven, Waeco fridge, and excellent storage. Opposite is a true chart table which is very well equipped with extensive electronics including AIS, radios and radar. Aft is the private bathroom complete with toilet, vanity, and shower. Cruising is comfortable all year round with the stunning Sig Marine Diesel Heater in the saloon.

On deck, the generously sized cockpit is ideal for shorthanded sailing, relaxing, or entertaining. There is ample seating including the two aft princess seats, and the cockpit cushions and spray dodger provide additional comfort and protection. This is a vessel that is easy managed by a couple with the Course Master Autopilot, all lines lead aft to the cockpit, and furling headsail making sail handling stress free. All deck gear is of the highest standing including all self tailing winches.

This vessel is powered by a 40HP Yanmar Diesel engine which has been well looked after and provides easy and reliable cruising at 6.5 knots.

This is a vessel that really has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The exceptional build quality is evident throughout, as is the attention to detail in the finishes to create a stunning and capable Bluewater cruiser. It really is a credit to the current owners! This vessel presents an excellent opportunity for anyone looking for a safe, strong, and attractive vessel which is a true turn key package. It is capable of fulfilling any cruising ambitions where it be local or international! Vessels of this quality rarely last long and an inspection is highly recommended.
