Layout and Accommodations
The walk through on this boat is representative of its time and its heritage. Aft of the anchor locker is a comfortable vee berth followed by a head and shower combination to port with a hanging locker to starboard. The salon follows with a U-shaped settee to port and a straight settee to starboard. The galley has a two-burner stove, oven, a double sink and an refrigerator. The nav station is just forward of the quarter berth (which forms the nav seat) on starboard. It’s a perfect design to drink 6, eat 4 and sleep 5.
Design, Construction and Performance
This boat was designed as a racer by Sparkman and Stephens and was originally put into production and sold as the Yankee 38. One look at its sleek lines and round tumblehome and you can tell it’s an S&S IOR design from the 70s. Some years later, Catalina bought the molds and Frank Butler made several changes including replacing the flush deck with a cabin house to make the boat more appealing to a coastal cruising market.
The broad beam of over 11 feet is swept gracefully back to a narrow wineglass transom. The original S&S design included a very sleek swept back keel design that maximized good performance to weather. Catalina later offered an optional shoal draft version to expand to a market that may have been draft restricted. The keel-stepped, double spreader, high aspect ratio rig and fine entry made the 38 extremely fast to weather and able to outpoint many competitors of its time.
