1983 Nantucket Island 38 located in California for sale

38' Nantucket Island 38


Description: S/V Polonica is a Nantucket Island 38 and is a coast guard documented vessel. Her hailing port is Honolulu, Hi. and current home port is Pillor Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay, Ca. She has been all over the South Pacific with her original owner and was sold in Hawaii 9 years ago. The second owner didnt go sailing but he did do quit a bit of work to her. We purchased Polonica in 2014 in Hawaii. In 2015 we sailed her across the Pacific to Alameda, Ca, where she spent a year and now she lays in Half Moon Bay. She was built in the famous Ho Hsing yard, which is the same yard that most Hans Christians were built. There are only 5 38 ever built. She is a flush deck, center cockpit vessel with hand layed glass w/ an encapsulated lead keel. Modified cutaway keel w/ a skeg hung rudder. Very solid and sea kindly as we have battled some enormous seas and winds coming across the Pacific and she was as stable as one could dream.
