Broker's Comments

Engine serviced October 2023 - this boat has had monumental recent investment - check out the details to appreciate what has been done!

This is an impressive looking Sigma 38 that has seen offshore racing in years past.

The owner set about redesigning the galley area but serious health problems prevent him from doing any further work on the boat.

So it needs a new spray hood, changes to the galley to include a fridge and cooking facilities and so on.

With twin aft double cabins, saloon berths and the usual V berth up front - there are bags of accommodation.

This is not a boat for a beginner but possibly a syndicate who want a real performance yacht to go racing, or an experienced skipper who can add value to this Sigma 38.

And it could be a capacious liveaboard for a couple seeking some restoration then oceanic adventures.

It's unfortunate that her current owner can't finish her off, having spent so much on the expensive parts have caused this sale but this presents an opportunity for someone to take this fine yacht and get it back into the sea adventures it was designed for.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
