  • Remarks: Brokers Comments
    "Seeking the perfect compromise between racer and cruiser can be an expensive and time-consuming process...but I believe the performance, lay-out and quality of build of the Prima 38 will give her what it takes. In cruising mode the saloon offers all the comfort you would expect and decent sea berths make a change offshore. The galley has more space than you would expect and can happily cater for a full crew." - Matthew Sheahan, Yachting Monthly.

    The last Prima 38 to be built in the UK in 2005 by Seaquest Yachts, and the only one with masthead spinnakers. IRC optimised rudder designed by Hugh Wellbourn. Dry sailed from new. The Prima 38 is capable of round the cans agility, has offshore capability, and cruising comfort. Record of racing results available upon request.
