38' Catalina 38 '80 "Crusader"


The Catalina 38, originally designed by Sparkman Stephens for Yankee Boat Company as a one off racing design is now one of the best known racer/cruiser style boats thanks to Catalina Yachts. CRUSADER is a fine example of how a boat of this vintage should look. Clearly cared for by her owners, logistics force them to move on. This is a good opportunity for either a racer or a cruiser to step aboard and enjoy the sailing life at a reasonable price.
