The Admiral 38 is one of the best sailing 38 foot cats on the market. A sleek, seaworthy design, not a boxy condo-like boat, Nauti Cat has a wide beam and excellent hull design that handles and sails like a larger catamaran. The interior is more roomy than some 42 foot cats, with a comfortable and spacious layout.  They are true blue-water passage makers and most all of the 38s, including this one, have sailed across the Atlantic on their own hulls. This is an outstanding value on a great never chartered sailing /cruising Cat.  Nauti Cat has:*Newer engines with only 210 hours,  (3 years old)*New Sail drive on port side, rebuilt saildrive on Stb. (3 years old)*New Air Conditioning (2 Years old)*New Galley Stove and ovens*New Charger/ inverter*Newer Batteries, new faucets, heads, receptacles, bilge pumps, head stay, furler, blocks, Etc.
