General Details

The IP-38 is a fantastic cruiser, remarkable in design with much more room throughout and is one of Bob Johnson's most popular designs, the 38 is a true bluewater cruising cutter with a full keel design that combines speed with control and safety. Her interior accommodations are bright and spacious, with 6.4 headroom throughout. The spacious tri-cabin layout features large forward & aft staterooms each with double berths and private full heads making cruising with two couples realistic. Autumn Wind has been well equipped for blue water and extended cruising.


The spacious interior features a tri-cabin layout with large forward and aft staterooms, each with private access to an adjoining head with shower, and a large, open central salon. The forward master stateroom has an exceptionally open, roomy layout. It features a large offset double berth with storage below, oversized hanging locker plus bureau and chest of drawers. There's an overhead hatch and opening port in both the forward stateroom and the adjoining private head with vanity, sink & curtained shower with teak seat. The main salon is bright and open with six opening ports and an overhead hatch, a wide sole, large settees port & stbd. with storage lockers beneath and behind, and a bulkhead-mounted dining table.
