The Signature Series Thirty-Eight embodies the timeless elegance of classic sailboat design with the added convenience and performance features of modern technology. The hull is a masterpiece of form and function, inspired by the classic “knockabout” lines and re-imagined with a more deliberate execution. The assertive spoon bow and graceful counter make the boat stand out on the water, while the signature elliptical transom displays a distinctive and marked tumble-home shape that adds to the boat’s sleek and stylish appearance.
Sailing is effortless with the Signature Series thirty-eight, thanks to its long waterline, modern bulb keel, and sleek spade rudder. The boat’s modern carbon mast and boom, combined with its simple sloop rig design, deliver exceptional sailability and performance. The self-tacking jib makes short-tacking a breeze, allowing sailors to focus on steering instead of adjusting sails.
All lines are conveniently led below deck for ease and safety, and the boat can be equipped with push-button sailing functions for those who want even more control.
The cockpit layout of the Signature Series thirty-eight allows for separate lounging and sailing areas. The flush “side-to” boarding platform provides easy access, and the simple hinge detail allows a small section of the hull to fold down, making it easy to step up to the deck from the dock or dinghy. The interior of the boat is spacious and accommodating, offering everything needed for daysailing or weekending.
The Signature Series thirty-eight by Stephens Waring Design combines the timeless beauty of classic sailboat design with the performance and convenience of modern technology. Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a weekend adventurer, this boat is sure to provide an enjoyable and memorable sailing experience.
