SENSATION | 2003 Admiral 38
Sensation, a 2003 Admiral 38, thinks she is actually a 42-footer, and most people who step onboard are inclined to believe it too! With an astonishing amount of liveable space, Sensation belies her actual size.
She is proud Owner’s version with a spacious main cabin and ensuite, two guest cabins, two electric toilets, a convenient galley-up, and an abundance of storage space. Solar panels, a 2000w inverter, hardtop bimini and a watermaker make her perfect for those longer cruising plans.
Sensation also features folding propellers, recently renewed rigging and sails in great condition.
If you looking for a proven all-rounder that has the pedigree of blue-water sailing, we invite you to inspect Sensation today! Call Kelvin on 0430 941 585.
