Does anyone have any comments on these yachts.

They look good, interior finish appears good too, and I believe most are designs from recognized designers (though mostly dated IOR- like most boats of that era)

Haven't seen one in person but they did catch my eye during our most recent boat hunt.

Fun boat - Barberis Show 38

We have Wild Rover, a 1984 Show 38 and love the boat. Perfect coastal cruiser for 2 grown ups, 2 kids (each get their own berth) & 2 small dogs. She's light and quick, yet not particularly tender compared to other racer/cruisers I've sailed. Deeper draft at 6'6" than many newer similar boats - fine for New England, might be limited for upper Chesapeake Bay, Pamlico or Gulf Coast.

From what Jody has said, there is his, and one on the east coast, which you would think to be "Rons" boat?!?!?!

At least that is what Jody has mentioned as to how may show 38's are in North America.

Jody and I have talked before - should be mine. Mine is on Narragansett, think there is also one on LI Sound closer in to NY. Not many others in the US that I know of.
