Owner wants this to be the next Rampage 38' sold!! 


Highly customized and fully rigged CAT C-9 powered Rampage 38' that is priced to SELL!! Original owner ordered this boat with every option offered by Rampage, and included quite a few Special Order Request features as well. Most notably are the two Bomar hatches that he had installed in the hardtop, as well as a custom powder-coated handrail beneath the hardtop. The fighting lady yellow hull is awlgrip, which will hold its shine for years to come.  The typical Rampage has colored gelcoat, which does not last nearly as long. Other notable features include custom full tuna tower with controls and electronics, Palm Beach style hardtop vs the Rampage factory hardtop, Lee outriggers, center rigger, (10) flush mounted rod holders vs. the standard (4), Pompanette fighting chair with rocket launchers, teaser reels, helm deck air conditioning/heat, full enclosure (constantly updated), lower and upper helm canvas covers, engine room heater, Furuno NAVNET electronics package (both stations), (2) Sharp flat-screen tvs, Panasonic DVD player, in-sole rod storage, teak and holly sole, and Scopinich helm chair are just a few of the upgrades that were added. In 2005, Rampage moved the exhaust from the transom to the sides, and improved the look and design of the side engine air intake vents. Owner is moving up, and offers this fine yacht at a very attractive asking price. This one will not dissapoint!! PRICE GREATLY REDUCED!!!  TWO-BOAT OWNER SAYS "SELL"! New underwater lights installed Spring 2010.  Summer 2012, port turbo was lagging, so owner replaced BOTH of them- just an example of the care that has been taken of this boat.  This boat definately raises fish.....


Displacement: 24,000#
Total Power: 510 each Cruising Speed: 28-29 knots Max Speed: 32-33 knots
The 38' is one of Rampage's most popular models of all time due to her superior fishability and attractive spacious interior. Every detail of her helm-deck and cockpit design supports her fishing aspects, while her generous interior layout and use of high-end fabrics and cherry wood make her accomodations worthy of comfortable cruising. The boat features a large athwartships double berth forward with a privacy curtain, cedar-lined hanging locker, large drawer storage, and the optional flat screen TV. The private head is rather large for a boat of her size, and boasts a quiet TECHMA head system, large sink with vanity, storage, and an enclosed stall shower. Aft to port is the convertible dinette with sleeping space for two adults and space for 4 adults for dining- plenty of storage beneath. The conveniently located galley includes a Tundra refrigerator w/freezer, two-burner electric stove, Sharp convection microwave, Black and Decker mounted coffee maker, a second Sharp flat-screen TV, drawer storage, pantry storage, solid surface countertop, stainless sink, and ample cupboard storage. There is also a large in-sole rod storage compartment with gas assist shocks. Natural lighting is provided via 4 opening ports with screens, a large translucent overhead sky light, and 3 overhead hatches. Bridge deck has an excellent layout for both fishing and entertaining. Centerline Scopinich teak ladder back helm seat with foot rest offers 360 degree visibility and comfortable seating. There is a raised companion seat to starboard, and a large L-shaped lounge to port and aft- the front section of which swivels around to allow for a second forward facing companion seat. To starboard is a second lockable tackle storage locker, and a hidden U-Line ice maker. The helm deck is fully enclosed and climate controlled with its own 16,000 BTU air conditioner/heater. Owner had two Bomar hatches installed in the hardtop as well as a custom powder-coated hand rail.
