What’s not to love about this impeccably maintained Endeavour 38? She certainly checks all the right marks, starting with her great design, which has given Endeavour yachts a well-deserved loyal following over the past several decades. It would be challenging to think of a more comfortable 38-foot cruiser: her center cockpit allows her a full-beam master stateroom aft, which in turn allows for a large head to port and an ideal working galley to starboard. Engine access is, of course, perfect, with removable panels from nearly all sides allowing for easy maintenance. Her beamy salon is plush and pleasant, with 6 feet 5 inches of headroom, and her layout forward will make your guests and crew relish the idea of a few nights on the boat, be it in a marina or a few hundred miles offshore. The greatness continues on deck, with a safe, dry cockpit, high above the water and ideally located for docking; flat, wide sidedecks that allow for easy movement from bow to stern; and a huge aft deck where you can install long chairs or cut up the Mahi you just caught. “Speranza” has all that – and more. She’s a 100 percent freshwater boat, and the owners have invested in inside heated storage over the years, which means she’s been out of the cold, away from the snow, and will be easy to inspect. She has a bowthruster, twin AC units, and has undergone, over the years, extensive work to keep her hull and bottom paint looking as pristine as the day she emerged from the mold. For the sailor looking for a well-built yacht, capable of serving equally well as a dockside condo, Thursday evening cocktail cruiser, or long-range bluewater passagemaker, she offers unique value and won’t be on the market long.
