A fabulous offshore cruiser, this Nauticat 38 is outstanding due to her exceptional performance both under sail and power. She is a unique and elegant looking boat and is equipped with all the cruising comforts. The Nauticat 38 is a model that has been actively in production for over 30 years. There have been numerous small improvements during that time, but the design survives because it is arguably the finest 38 foot motorsailer ever produced. She is powered by single 90 hp Ford Lehman 4-cyl diesel.

CABALLO DEL VIENTO is designed to accommodate two couples nicely with good separation for privacy. The forward V-berth is one of the larger ones you will find. This area has a nice hanging locker for storage. As you move aft you will enter the galley. To portside is the actual galley with a large U-shaped dining area to starboard. Upon leaving the dining area you will step up to the pilothouse area, which has a generous, seating area directly behind the helm-station. This area is particularly bright with all the windows and her sliding skylight. There is an entrance to the pilothouse on both starboard and port.

As you move aft and go down a couple of steps you are now in the master stateroom. It is spacious with ample storage, head, shower, built in drawers, hanging lockers for an extended period of time.
Outside and aft of the raised pilothouse is the second steering station. This area is particularly spacious. If you were entertaining, this area could very well become your private dance floor.

CABALLO DEL VIENTO is likely one of the finest Nauticat 38 Pilothouse Ketch rigged sailboats you will currently find on the market unless you buy new. She is a very seaworthy boat with her full keel and strong bones and she has seen only freshwater for the last 25 years which adds to her beauty.

Please refer to her specifications for the numerous recent upgrades that she boasts. She is in above average condition as per a 2017 survey and she will take you the distance comfortably and safely whether under power or under sail.
