Manufacturer Provided Description:

The 38 Billfish and 38 Open were designed and built with the same DNA as their predecessor, the 37 Billfish. As owner/operator vessels, they offer simplicity and ease of maintenance, serving as ready-to-go fishing machines equipped for inshore and offshore missions as well as versatile cruising boats with reliable inboard diesel power.

The 38 Billfish and 38 Open share the same hull, cockpit and have a similar mechanical arrangement but differ in command deck and bridge configurations. Their 109-square-foot cockpits are equipped with a laminated mounting plate in the deck for fighting chair, rocket launcher or table installations. Other features include in-deck insulated fish boxes port and starboard, a walk through transom door and lift gate, a bait freezer with upper tray, a transom fish box and live well, rod holders, tackle storage and fresh and raw-water wash downs. Both boats feature two-person seats flanking the centerline walkthrough. There’s refrigerated drink storage, as well as ample general storage throughout.

The 38 Open’s command deck also has ample seating, with port and starboard L-shaped lounges and storage below. A raised centerline command station gives the driver excellent sightlines and is equipped with a fiberglass helm pod, power-assist hydraulic steering with stainless steel wheel and Palm Beach style controls. Viking’s Palm Beach Towers can outfit the 38 Open with a custom tuna tower with a second helm and a buggy top.

The 38 Open has Palm Beach style controls and power-assist hydraulic steering. Seating includes a single Release Marine teak chair (a second helm chair is optional) and lounges to port and starboard and a forward console seat. A three-sided Costa Clear enclosure provides weather protection. For both the 38 Billfish and 38 Open, our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics can build and install an A-to-Z package of navigation and communication equipment to deliver the boat turnkey ready.

The 38 Open has accommodation layout geared more toward day boating, featuring a starboard-side sofa with storage. The galley and head with enclosed shower are positioned on the port side. Both galleys are appointed with Corian countertops, two-burner electric stoves, microwave/convection ovens, cabinet storage and under-counter drawer-style refrigeration with built-in ice makers. The 38 Open has a lower double bunk and an upper single with a starboard-side hanging locker.

A modified vinylester resin is used in the entire hull skin. End-grain balsa and closed-cell foam are used as coring materials in selected areas for optimized strength and stiffness while minimizing weight. The single integral fiberglass fuel tank, sealed to the hull with resin foam, is resin infused with balsa coring on all sides for stiffness. The hull-to- deck joint is mechanically fastened every three inches and fiberglassed inside. The 38 Open is powered with twin Cummins QSB6.7 diesels with 550 MHP.
