The Pacific 38 is a big boat with a big boat feel, providing good liveability and storage options. Turn that into sailing functionality and that wide beam becomes buoyancy as the boat heels over and powers up on to the wind. Owners describe the helm as light and well balanced. It is an easily driven hull shape that, like many masthead-rigged vessels, responds well to early reefing. Construction of the Pacific 38 is in solid fibreglass in excess of Lloyd's specifications - and solid is the operative word. The hulls were completely hand laid and vary in thickness from one inch in the area encasing the lead to three quarters of an inch at the turn of the bilge and five eighths of an inch on the topsides. Bulkheads are three quarter inch ply, rebated to take the glass bonding material. Decks are three eighths of an inch glass laminate, as is the cabin top and cockpit. Smith has further strengthened the side decks with ply. If there is a compromise in weight for speed then so be it. This yacht obviously favors the survival safety side of sailing in the integrity of its construction and that is partially the enduring appeal of the Pacific 38.


The fully restored 38 foot cutter was designed in New Zealand and built in Sydney Australia. It features a new engine and transmission, all new bimini and dodger and internal cushions and covers.
