Description: I could not describe this boat that I have owned for 10 years, and lived on for 7 of those years, better than as described in The Proper Yacht, 2nd Edition by Arthur Beiser International Marine, 1978
DOWNEASTER 38: "... a straightforward, common-sense boat that will evoke a nostalgic twinge in those who remember what sailboats used to look like. The Downeaster 38 is no greyhound of the sea, but in the long run a friendly shaggy dog makes the better companion for many of us, and for such people the 38 or something like it may very well be the right boat."

I love this boat. She is full keel and is very, very comfortable to sail in big seas and cruise for days on end as well as spacious enough to host large crew for harbor sailing.

She is rigged for single or short-handed sailing with most lines leading aft. Her comfortable cockpit is wide and completely covered in canvas covered closed-cell foam cushions that snap in.
