Cheoy Lee Sigma 38 Sparkman/Stephens

Anyone know anything about these? A friend suggested I look into them. Seem to be a decent boat, nice looking, a little on the skinny side (which I like, "built for speed, not comfort! )

What say y'all?

SailboatData.com info here.

Not sure if you know so here is a link to help explain some of the numbers, if you like to number crunch. YMMV.

Yep, I saw the numbers and I'm pretty good at interpreting how all this correlates to performance. Just wondering if anyone has an opinion on how well built they are, how well they actually sail, etc.
Thanks.

Hi Sailor Dave...pretty late response, but I bought a Sigma 38, totally rebuilt it for ocean, and sailed it from Ft. Lauderdale to the Caribbean where I sailed a year. I loved it. Worst weather we encountered was 65 knots gusting to 90, hundreds of miles into the Atlantic, and it handled beautifully. I of course had reinforced the chainplates, reinforced the transom, and remounted the backstay from the railings down to a chainplate I made and installed right on the transom, reinforced from the inside with ply and glass. I also battened down the batteries in preparation for a rollover, but it never happened. It has a stainless steel shoe on the rudder for running aground. I also added 6 inches to the bottom of the rudder to give it a little more area. I finally had to sell it but I ran across your post cuz I was daydreaming about it. Don't think you could go wrong.
