The O-38: the perfect cruising boat, sailing comfortably, good looking and a fast cruiser/racer. This boat is one-of-a-kind and has a great backstory! The owner recently solo-sailed over from San Diego to Kaneohe Bay. She is fully equipped and ready to sail to Tahiti or just safely cruise the Hawaiian coasts. She drives and sails like a dream and was built to last the test of time!

Genoa is unknown maker, but as you can see, very well and heavily built. I will be shipping out a beautiful 110% Genoa by Rolly Tasker that really fires the boat up.
Staysail is a 10 oz. Hood I bought used. It has a couple stains, but the sail is in v.good to excellent shape. It fits the boat LIKE A GLOVE, and really powers the boat well when the wind picks up, because the sail is driving from a low center of effort, so heeling is reduced, and because it's shape makes a perfect slot with the reefed main.
Propane tanks are fiberglass and lightweight, but small.
EPIRB is an ACR. As seen on the unit, battery is good until 2019, so it's ready to cruise.
