Seafarer 38

You could hardly do better than a Seafarer 38 for a seaworthy, seakindly vessel that's easy to single-hand and has an abundance of creature comforts. My '74 ketch Roundelay cuts through rough chop as if it weren't there, points well, is fast, and is a classic beauty. Capsize screening ratio is 1.65, motion comfort ratio is 37. Few other bluewater boats can beat these stats, the Allied Seawind II among them, but the Seawind is a lot smaller. The S38 is like a floating hotel. In my opinion, she's definitely one of Philip Rhodes' best designs.
