Re: 38 Starflight

Good looking boat.. kinda reminds me of the CS Merlin 36, or CS40. Taylor has a good rep, and while it would be nice to know of the builder, a good surveyor will be able to tell you whether or not she 'is' as good as she looks.

Rather heavy-looking joinery for what is meant to be a racer cruiser by the look of her shape but as long as it's not too dark it will be 'boaty and cosy'. Assuming she's a typical fin keel/spade rudder? Too bad you're right about lack of info online.

I wonder if she's a cruisier version of this '84 Taylor 38?
