Description: The Islander Freeport 38 is a classic Robert Perry design. The 38 is a modified version of the popular Freeport 36, using the same hull design but increasing the sail plan, adding a bow pulpit and modifying the cabin design somewhat. To learn more about the Freeport 36 you might want to look at the article by Melissa White in a 2013 article for Three Sheets magazine. The first sentence of this article really describes the boat much better than I can. “Some boats impress me with their saucy looks, some with their accommodating interiors, but rarely do I see a boat that combines the two.”
The most distinctive thing about the Freeport is the drop down walk through transom ladder which really makes it easy to board or leave a dinghy, go for a swim, snorkel or scuba dive. The next most interesting item of the design is the huge head up forward where normally a V-berth would occupy. Aft of the head is the Masters Cabin with a Queen size bed to port and hanging lockers and drawers to starboard. The raised design of the salon provides plenty of lighting with the 4 large windows and lots of headroom that eliminates the cave like feeling of most sailboat salons.
Beneath the salon cabin sole is the engine compartment resting in the keel. The original VW Pathfinder engine was replaced in 2010 with a 63hp Yanmar 4JH2 turbo charged engine with 3200 hours. Only 200 hours have been put on the engine since then.
The sails consist of a 135% roller furled Genoa on a ProFurl furling system and fully battened mainsail with two reef capability. The canvas was all new in 2010 with the exception of the dodger which was built new in 2014. The Bimini covers the whole cockpit and comes with a 9 panel enclosure system for those cold days, which we never had in Key West.
