1987 Ericson Yachts E38
- Stock #081210 -
Newly repowered with a brand new Westerbeke!!!
This is a fantastic example of the legendary Ericson 38' designed and built by Bruce King.
From our friends at BoatUS:
Introduced in 1980, the Ericson 38 was designed by the incomparable Bruce King whose talent for drawing beautiful boats of near perfect proportions ranks him with the likes of Herreshoff, Stevens, Rhodes and Tripp. The length overall is 37' 8", beam is 12' and displacement is 15,500 lbs. Originally the Ericson 38 was built with a low aspect 4' 11" fin keel as standard equipment. A highly tapered "competition" fin was offered as an option that drew 6' 6". This was somewhat unusual in that shoal rather than deep draft was the standard equipment. For the most part, the hull of the Ericson 38 is constructed of a solid composite of fiberglass and resin although some core material is used in some flat sections above the waterline to add stiffness without excessive weight. The Ericson 38 utilizes an elaborate system of high strength fiberglass fabric and high-density foam to form a structural grid of transverse floors and longitudinal stringers. The grid is bonded to the hull throughout the bilge. Components such as keel, engine beds, mast step, structural bulkheads and rigging loads are all connected to the grid, resulting in a very rigid and strong structure.
The deck structure is a molded fiberglass composite with core throughout. There is a molded fiberglass toe rail eliminating the high maintenance and often-leaky teak toe rail found on many cruising boats of this size and quality. The hull and deck are mechanically fastened as well as bonded with fiberglass cloth and resin effectively forming a monocoque structure.
The Ericson 38 is clearly a cruising boat but her performance is certainly very respectable. With a sail area-displacement ratio of slightly over 18 and a displacement-length ratio of about 240, she has enough power for decent performance in light air yet is not so overpowered as to be impossible or dangerous to sail with a short handed crew.
