1974 Yankee 38 Sloop

South Berwick, Maine

$41,500

NATALIA is one of the highly regarded S&S designed 38’ Yankee Sloops, which were the forerunner of the Swan 38’s. These vessels have breathtaking lines with handsome tumblehome, and have proven both to be winners on the race course, as well as superb family cruisers. They were heavily built hulls with longitudinal and athwartship stringers, a T-shaped cockpit with wheel steering, and an easily-handled rig. NATALIA’S owner is her third, after purchasing her in 2007, and doing an extensive three year refit as documented above. NATALIA is the last of the 24 Yankee 38’s built. Please review all the upgrades which include new working sails, a Westerbeke diesel installed in 2016, a Simpson Lawrence anchor windlass, and more. Please come and inspect this 38’ S&S Sloop. We thank you for your interest.
