Reverie is a beautifully kept Cabo Rico 38 cutter rigged cruiser with a full keel, protected rudder, autopilot, solar power, wind power, GPS, and has recently undergone a beautiful and complete refurbishment with varnish of all interior and exterior wood from cabins to cockpit (2021). She has been repowered with a Brand New Yanmar Diesel engine (2021).

We sold her for two previous owners and we know this beautiful boat has been well cared for a long number of years. 

Ferenc Mate, in his well known tome, Worlds Best Sailboats, lists the Cabo Rico as one of the best. Crafted with attention to detail in Costa Rica, you will be hard pressed to find this much craftsmanship in almost any other sailboat. Designed by Gentleman Bill Crealock, she is an awesome performer both upwind and broad reaching.  With her cutter rigged staysail, yankee headsail and full keel, she is easy to balance on any point of sail and she’s a joy to steer.

She’s back in Venice, Florida and available for inspection.  Call now for your private showing.  Come see why she’s considered “One of the World’s Best” by Mate and many others.
