The deck layout is divided into two distinct spaces separated by the helm console. The aft cockpit is open, as befits a boat used for fishing. A 65-gallon recirculating livewell is under the bench seat cushions at the transom, and there are two fishboxes in the cockpit sole. Theres also a standard wet bar along the starboard side. The standard helm features a pair of drop-down bolster seats, but you can upgrade to a seat that has tackle storage, a rigging station and a cutting board, all housed in a fiberglass module. 

The 38 ZSF has a high, curved-glass wrap-around windshield to keep you from blowing away while under way, and an optional hardtop. That hardtop extends well forward of the helm over a protected area with two curved bench seats. Its a splendid spot to enjoy the ride. The seats hold insulated coolers or they can be fitted with optional refrigerators or freezers. The storage compartment in the helm console of the test boat was fitted with a cutout panel to hold dive tanks securely. The side walkways provide a sure-footed path for line handling or anchoring duties, as well as enjoying the foredeck sunpad. 

In addition to the 38 ZSFs larger windshield, the helm console has its own windscreen. The curved, tempered glass piece on our test boat was well-formed. I didnt see a bit of distortion. The helms lower panel holds switches and breakers, Mercury SmartCraft instrumentation, as well as the steering wheel, shift and throttle levers. The upper panel is a vast expanse for the large-screen electronics of your choosing.


The 38 ZSF has a sliding companionway door to the cabin thats fitted with a separate screen. Walking space down the center of the cabin has about 6 feet, 2 inches of headroom. Ventilation and light come from four portholes -- two on each side -- plus an overhead hatch. Air conditioning is an option for this boat, as is a generator. 

The galley is just inside the entrance and to port. It has a sink, a refrigerator and a microwave that come standard and an available single-burner electric stove. The cherry wood cabinetry also holds the boats optional TV and DVD player as well as the standard audio system -- a Sony AM/FM/CD deck that powers six speakers on board. It has a remote control at the helm. Theres also a hanging locker in the aft corner of the cabinet. 

The head compartment is to starboard, opposite the galley. It measures just above 6 feet in height. An attractive dark surface countertop and accent pieces offset the starkness of the white fiberglass lining. The molded sink includes a separate soap dish. The toilet has a fold-down bench seat to cover it. 

A pair of settees line the middle section of the cabin bulkheads. They feature storage underneath the seat cushions and are served by a unique dining table that slides out from the base of the V-berth. The berth measures nearly 7 feet from head to toe. There are also a couple of storage drawers in its base.
