Pros:
Cons:

Summary: The 384 is slightly different than the previous boats in the series.
She has a taller mast which gives her better windward abilities than the earlier editions.
On deck there are four dorades and eight opening ports.
The wetted surface is the same as earlier models with the modified full keel and skeg hung rudder.
Strengths: The PHRF on the Chesapeake Bay is about the same as the Tartan 37. So she sails well.
Weakness: Fuel tankage is only 40 gal.
Overall Satisfaction: We love our boat. We lived aboard for the past year and cruised the Bahamas and the
East Coast of the US. Currently we are in the Chesapeake Bay.

Pros:
Cons:

Functional, Seaworthy, Comfortable, and a Great sailing boat best describe how we feel about the M384. We have lived aboard for a year now and have been very happy. Key features/strengths include beefy standing rigging, mast, rudder and quadrant, right sized motor, well laid out interior and good deck space/layout. She has a great cockpit with plenty of room at anchor and quite safe in a seaway. Weaknesses are limited tankage (water (90) and diesel (40)), over all access for repairs, and as with all boats "some things done by the factory just don't make good sense". Even with access limitation listed above, have not impeded upgrades undertaken to date. Having said that, we are very satisfied with our choice in the M384 and would recommend it highly.
