Bought the Phoenix 38 !!

Ahoy Mates,

I too, saw the briefly posted CL listing. Responded immediately, went to see her (35 miles away), and bought her, on the spot! She is amazing. I'll share more next week, after taking possession, if interested.

Anyone out their interested in another amazing, rare boat? I am now a "two boat owner". My current beauty is a 1984, hull# 271, Catalina 38. She will be for sale, when I take possession of "Juanita". Get back to me, if you know the C38 and are interested.

Capt. Mike

Thumbs up Cat 38

Capt Mike,

Congrats on your purchase, she looks like a great catch. I was looking up more info on JUANITA from the craigslist ad, and came upon this thread.

I'm currently in the market for a liveaboard, and put a bid out on a simularly priced 1973 Coronado 41 on Monday. Will your Cat 38 be in the same price range? What condition is it in, where is it currently homeported, etc?

I'm living/working in Monterey, and am new to sailing (I'm in the Navy, but our ships are quite a different animal). Should I not land this Coronado, I'll be looking for something else. However, my concern is if I were to purchase something outside of Monterey, I'd probably need help sailing it down here.

Mike

Catalina 38

Hey Mike,

Are you familiar with the Sparkmans/Stephen Catalina 38? It has a tumblehome shaped hull and a wine glass transom. Very cool lines. Only a bit over 300 were ever made. Not even close to a typical Catalina 36. Google them and you'll be turned on to an amazing boat. LUCKY STAR is a 1984. She is $47,500/ obo. She is also very special. I have spent the last 6 months getting her perfect. I lead all lines aft, to the cockpit, for easy singlehandling. Sail like a dream! Will chase down and go by most 40 footers. Most everything is high end, and new. Really, really cool!! If your interested, make an offer. She is completely "turn key". Everything is done. New full batten main, new roller furler headsail, new rigid boom vang, new deck hardware (lewmar), eight rope clutches, new upholstery, new carpet, entire inside redone. Sanded and natural teak oiled. It's beautiful. New head, new refrigeration, most everything. She is very cool. I get several complements, every week. The boat is in San Francisco. Easy enough to get her to Monterey. I'm a USCG licensed Captain. Someone will realize an amazing boat. Much more info, upon request

Capt. Mike
