"The Herreshoff 38 is built with care and craftsmanship that brings high technology to the forefront of yacht design. From stem to stern she represents "state of the art" design and construction. The fiberglass/Airex hull construction results in one of the strongest yet lightest hulls available in cruising sailboats today. Her aerodynamically efficient, elliptically shaped, unstayed carbon fiber masts reduce weight aloft while enhancing performance through flexibility and automatic sail shaping.
The Herreshoff 38 is one of the most comfortable sailing vessels in her size range. Her Cat Ketch rig is a pleasure to handle. With 42 percent ballast to weight ratio, low cenrer of effort and long waterline, she sails upright and smoothly. She is a virtually effortless yacht to sail, with no winches, vangs, stays or any other hardeware associated with genoas or head sails."
The first impression as you step below on the boat is that there is really good headroom and it's easy to move through the boat. Moving forward there is a stateroom forward with an offset double berth to port. There is a large double hanging locker to starboard and a head to port aft of the berth. There is a mahogany door that separates this forward cabin from the main saloon.
In the main saloon there is a U-shaped dinette to port and two barrel chairs to starboard.
There is Cruisair air conditioning in this area. All of the hull and lockers are lined with solid Honduras mahogany. The galley is aft to starboard and has good ventilation.
There is an aft quarter cabin with a head and shower and a double berth.
The boat is very easy to move about in and the workmanship is good. There are several bronze opening ports and there is no sign of any leaking around them.
