Hull number 27 of the well regarded Eastbay 38 series is nicely upgraded example of the model. Standout features include: Bow thruster, recent bimini, recent Autopilot, just recovered Stidd helm seats and freshly refinished full teak cockpit. The 38 is well known for her excellent sea handling and offers gracious accommodations for 2 or 4 with the dinette table lowered into an additional berth. This boat shows in very nice condition from her full teak interior to her Dark Blue Awlgrip.

(The teak and holly sole is the market preferred finish but was not widely used until about 2000). Superior natural light and ventilation with three hatches with screens and six ports with screens. Artificial light is equally well planned with several overhead lights as well as swivel style reading lamps at the berths/settees.

(The TV swivels and there is a companion access panel from the stateroom allowing TV viewing from either compartment) Additional storage is outboard in lockers and a book case.


The U-Shaped galley is to port featuring a large single basin sink, Formica counter tops and excellent storage in several lockers and drawers. Outboard is the Princess 3 burner propane stove
with oven, while aft and below counter height is a front loading refrigeration box fitted with 12volt Grunert system. The freezer is a generous top loading unit aft and outboard.

Master Stateroom is forward with featuring a 6'-6"+ V-berth with drawer storage underneath each berth, a bureau aft to starboard, and customized enlarged under deck lockers outboard. An overhead hatch and opening ports (all with screens) provide ample ventilation.

water. Ensuite shower is plumbed to a separate sump.

Up 3 steps (storage under) from the Salon/Galley is the helm deck with helm station to starboard.

HULL & DECK: A notable plus to this Eastbay 38 is that she was Awlgripped from her waterline to the rail 2004. All of these surfaces have been kept waxed using the Awlcare wax system and with only minor exceptions look like they were painted far more recently. In 2012 the bottom was soda blasted.
Fiberglass hull with end grain balsa coring from the chines to the rail and solid fiberglass bottom.
The hull finish from the waterline up is Flag Blue Awlgrip with a White boot top and cove stripe. The bottom is finished with ablative red anti-fouling and any paint build up has been avoided by sanding 
as required.
