1986 Vagabond Westwind 38

1986 Vagabond Westwind 38.
Annapolis, Maryland

Ready to sail the Chesapeake this summer and head south this fall. Vagabond’s Westwind 38 has its larger cousins’ rugged construction and fine interior teak joinery throughout with a more modern look and more modern design. Vagabond built about three dozen of this model in the famed Taiwanese ship yards during the sweet spot of boat building: when boats were built heavier, but with foam core in the decks, not wood.

The Westwind 38 is cutter rigged with an integral fin keel, a full skeg rudder and a Max prop three bladed propellor. She has a Pullman style full-sized front berth and a full sized aft berth. She has a hard dodger with new polycarbonate windshield, a rugged solar arch with 690 watts of panels, a D400 wind generator, and dinghy davits.
