An optimum angle of attack and low vertical pitching ensures extreme sea keeping, while the minimum hydrodynamic drag optimises hull-efficiency – producing fuel savings of 25-30% compared to a well-designed traditional V-shaped bottom. The harmonised balance, weight and design eliminate planning threshold, giving the 38 Sport a peerless cruising capability and sovereign top speed potential.
The 38 Sport will take you places you’ve never been before. And sometimes you might even want to stay there. With this in mind, the console provides ‘close quarters’ shelter for two. After a long day at sea, you can shower the salt from your skin and change to your evening attire in privacy.
Owners can chose between three seating configurations, optimising the boat for their individual user preferences: the option of four Patrol Bolsters is tailored for active driving; the Comfort Seat includes water, a sink, fridge and sofa for your convenience; while the Ullman Shock Mitigating Seats are made for endurance driving.
It is the only boat in the world with staggered Mercury TDI engines. By installing both engines close to the keel we obtain a lower centre of gravity, minimise drag from the drives, and maximise grip on the propellers - all of which are vital for the vessel’s towering performance and razor sharp handling
This ‘go anywhere’ hull is made to cut through waves at high speed, so both its construction and materials must absorb and withstand the energy of repeated impacts. This is only achievable with the finest materials, evolving know-how and state-of-the-art techniques. All our boats are built using premium quality glass fibre mats in a sandwich construction, with high-density Divinycell core materials. This delivers maximum rigidity and a high-quality ride, year after year.
The 38 Sport is built to be driven hard. With a capability to maintain planning speed in Sea State 4, with waves up to 2m, the only thing a windy forecast will do is put a smile on your face. Two semi-surface drives with safe grip ensure that the high-tech, lightweight body accelerates easily in and out of planning in extreme conditions.
