38 This yacht is one of the most overlooked best buys today. Fast and roomy a little spartan inside which means easy to clean and sexy looking you could say she is like an Olympic Swimmer in her Speedo and she has the smooth lines of one. With a few thousand miles under her keel since we bought our yacht blue water is play time. We have been out in some really rough weather and the yacht remains a solid platform. She will porpous some times and you might get wet but then you could buy a dodger. I find flaws all over the boat, most are bad wood work but nothing that cant be fixed and nothing structual except the Catalina smile see www.catalina38.org for repair tips on this. The yacht is built like a rock.The boat is still so competitive yet much heavier than late model boats its great. You never feel like your bouncing your sailing when you on a Catalina 38.
