The Catalina 38 is nearly identical - same hull mold and perhaps somewhat more efficient appendages.. are you looking at those too?

Re: Yankee38

Thanks for that. I am more interested in the Yankee 38 because of the way they were built. The Whole industry changed about the time that Butler bought the molds. The price of oil and resins went up very fast and that was one of the reasons Yankee Yachts went BK. It is now 40 years later and I feel that the quality that went into the Yankees should start becoming a factor. Besides I have sailed and crewed on lots of races and I think the flush deck is a great idea.
Great site for sailing discussions.
Thanks for your response.

Re: Yankee 38

Yankee 38 is a lot better boat than C38. Better build quality and skeg hung rudder. But it is a rare boat. If you have the money, Swan 36 or 37 are based on the same S&S design with superior build quality. Swan 36 is an absolutely fantastic boat, superior to Y38 in many ways, yet based on essentially the same design. Here is one at a very reasonable price: 1969 Nautor Swan 36 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Re: Yankee 38

Hello thanks for the info on the Swan boats. I am here on the West Coast so that wouldn't work economically.
I am working some leads and have just heard about a Yankee that has been in the same slip in the Seattle area without moving for multiple years. Wealthy owner lost interest I think.
Good sailing to you for the new year.

Remember today is the youngest that you will ever be again!

Pictures???



FWIW I have a friend that cruised and raced a Catalina 38 (same hull) for many years and loved the way it sailed and handled in the ocean.

Re: Yankee 38

Yes sailed on a Catalina 38 and thought that it went to weather better than any other of the 15 other type boats I have crewed on.

I will try to post a photo.

I am on a iPad and can't seem to get photos posted.

HURRAY I did it!
