What a gorgeous sailboat! This design certainly promotes pride of ownership, and when coupled with adventurous voyages and stories to tell... you've got the dream package!
So many great aspects -- where to begin?! Start with a truly beautiful mahogany bowsprit, fitted Nov. 2016! All exterior woodwork is professionally maintained, as seen. A truly impressive inventory of equipment and recent additions are seen in Full Specifications -- soon yours to enjoy!
"Dragonheart" is a turn-key cruiser and possibly the last DownEaster 38 made -- this is an excellent example of a fantastic cruising sailboat, incorporating many design improvements not found on earlier models (see Full Specifications).
The two-boat owner chose this Low Price to attract your attention and promote a quick sale -- ask your questions freely and make plans to start enjoying your time aboard soon!
Your ideal DownEaster is already conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean! Currently tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for safe storage, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it! Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja). Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do. Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!
