Cabo Rico

Hello I am new here. My family have come to the place where we are ready to buy and offshore sailboat. One of the boats that we are looking at is the Cabo Rico 38. Have found a few online and was able to take a tour of one. What I am looking for is one that has not gone on the market yet.

Re: Cabo Rico

Good luck with your search. Have you looked at the Crealock (Pacific Seacraft) 37?

Welcome to the community and good look with your search. Please explain what the motivation would be in looking for a boat that is not on the market.

Re: Cabo Rico

There are not a lot of this boat on the market. And sometimes an owner is interested in selling the boat but has not yet made the leap to put the boat on the market.

Re: Cabo Rico

Welcome! I'm a bit confused as well. Are you looking for information about a specific Cabo Rico 38? There are a number of 38's listed on Cabo Ricos and Cabo Ricos. Are you looking for something for specific? IE: Much cheaper or much newer or a specific layout? These boats fill a specific market segment of cruising boats. People tend to hang on to them. There are a couple on the sites listed above that appear to be reasonable from the pictures.

Re: Cabo Rico

Hi, I put about 10,000 miles on a Tiburon 36 (same hull as the 38-but older and a center cockpit). These are excellent offshore boats. I found mine to be very mannerly sailing off the wind, the pilot never had a problem even in force 9 and 20 footers. Highly recommended.

A couple of things-one general, and one specific to the boat.

First- the teak decks are a big problem. Try to find a boat with them removed. All the older boats used conventional fasteners, and this channeled water into the core of the deck. This isn't necessarily a structural problem, since the boats are so damn strong, but eventually it'll lead to leaks and soft decks.

Take a close look at the hull to deck joint. Check for any signs of leaking. I had a failure in mine. I think that the fasteners might be spaced a little bit too far apart. It's possible that prior to my owning the boat, she had this failure due to some heavy weather, but all the same, take a close look everywhere you can. I was very surprised to have this happen, with the quality of the build in general.

Also, there is some coring in the hulls on these. Have the surveyor sound above the waterline too.

All in all, I think that for the money the C38's are an excellent value and a good cruising platform. Don't forget that there are some Tiburon 36's around too, which are essentially the same boat, with the bonus of an aft cabin. If the accommodations suit you, I think that the functionality is excellent.

Hope that helps a bit.

TJ
