Doug Peterson was one of the most successful designers of performance sailboats during the 70's and 80's. One of his most successful designs was the Peterson 34. The Peterson 38 was derived from the very successful Peterson 34 and this Peterson 38 is one of 5 built by Island Yachts/Marion Hayes. This boat has remained in the Hayes family and is owned by one of Marion's sons. It is available for immediate sale.

Psyched has a very successful race history: Winner of 1999 Bacardi Cup, Harvest Moon overall winner, Consistent winner of numerous Level 70 events on Galveston Bay. PHRF rating of 78, non spin rating of 99. No other boat goes upwind better than Psyched on Galveston Bay (short steep chop). Very fast off the wind.

Carbon Fiber spin pole, Navtec hydraulic backstay recently rebuilt. Lewmar 55 3 speed primaries.

Doug Peterson is a sailboat designer whose name is synonymous with innovation in the world of racing and cruising yachts. Since the mid-1970s, Peterson's yachts such as Scarlet O'Hara, Eclips, Cheetah, and the legendary Williwas have cut a winning swath through the world of offshore racing.

In 1976 Peterson sat down and designed the Peterson 34, a racer-cruiser. Peterson said the 34 was built "to deliver about eight people quickly and safely from point A to point B (such as Newport to Bermuda)." Modesty aside, the Peterson 34 has an excellent reputation for windward sailing performance in both light and heavy air. Her fine bow slices through the waves so she does not pound. And thanks to the advanced construction techniques of the era the solid hulls of the Peterson 34s are extremely strong and built to take it in any sea.
