"Turquoise Serenity" offers the perfect blend of performance, comfort, and style. Arrive ahead of the pack while cruising in high comfort. The First 38s5 puts an emphasis on performance, but with fully fitted cruising interiors to a high standard. Rich interior accommodations combine with a practical deck layout to produce a vessel with a great mix of class and style, while maintaining cruise worthy features like good stowage, a well conceived galley, plenty of privacy for owners and their guests, easy to transit decks, a spacious cockpit with convertible table, easy sail handling and much more. She has a solid fiberglass hull with an integrated grid section for strength.

This 38s5 is a splendid example of the two-cabin owner’s version of this vessel, with separate private ensuite heads for both cabins. This design also provides for a 25% larger owner’s berth than the 3-cabin model and a massive cockpit locker for storage. This boat is in very good shape with a lot of new equipment. Her owner prepared her for extensive cruising, but his plans have changed, so here is your opportunity to own a boat that is ready to go cruising for a great price.
