38' Catalina 38


Description: Rascal is a high performance 10/10ths classic sloop rig with phenomenal sailing characteristics. This is a sailorís boat and, with the Harken roller furler, is easy to rig and sail and is perfect for cruising. Rascalís high performance racing sails and spinnaker with choices of downwind sails make it a very competitive, proven racer as well, having won in the Newport to Ensenada race in both Cruising and Racing Classes.

The Catalina 38 is a sloop-rigged sailboat manufactured by Catalina Yachts of Woodland Hills, California from 1977 to 1990. A total of 366 hulls were produced. The boat evolved from a custom racing boat created by the American yacht design firm of Sparkman & Stephens; this hull form was later purchased by the Yankee Boat Company of Marina del Rey, California, which built approximately 30 Yankee 38's.
Frank Butler of Catalina Yachts purchased the molds from Yankee. Butler redesigned the interior and gave the boat a Catalina-styled deck. He lengthened the mast, shortened the boom, and changed the skeg-hung rudder to a balanced-spade design. Butler's changes resulted in a faster boat, and the Catalina 38 was selected to replace the Cal 40 as the official boat of the Congressional Cup, one of the top match-racing regattas in the world. It was, in turn, replaced by the Capri 37, also made by Catalina Yachts. Her unique tumble-home hull design makes her one of the most beautifully designed yachts in the world and gives her a boat speed advantage when heeled over.
