Your Day on the Water just got better!

The Ericson 38-200 takes a very good thing and makes it even better. By bringing the head aft and changing the galley to a “pedestal” configuration, the aft cabin expands and becomes a master. The forward stateroom gains locker space to spoil your guests. All this from a builder known for quality and durability.

The interior is oiled teak, with leatherette headliner and deck access zippers.  Seven aluminum opening port lights w/screens, 2 aluminum deck hatches w/solar fans, plus the companionway provide excellent natural light & ventilation.  There is a good mix of DC & AC lighting to illuminate the teak and holly cabin sole.

The forward guest cabin has a 6’6” X 4’6” double berth, vanity w/seat, two hanging lockers, shelves, two dome lights, deck hatch w/solar vent, and two opening ports w/screens.

The salon’s port dinette drops down to become a comfortable double berth with storage underneath.  The starboard settee serves as a single berth with storage lockers above and outboard with hinged doors. The teak table seats six. Extra table extension makes it comfortable to accommodate 10 persons at once.  The teak interior grab rails make movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.

The pedestal galley to port has storage galore, near center line deep stainless steel double sinks with both manual water foot pumps for lake and tank water and hot and cold pressure water with a 6 gallon, Atwood EHM6-SM, 110v AC/engine heated hot water heater, a large, top load, 6 cubic foot insulated ice box, a gimbaled, three burner Hillerange propane stove with oven.

The aft facing navigation station is to starboard across from the galley. The chart table with high intensity chart light and ample related lockers with room for an array of electronics.

The head compartment aft to starboard with a manual head & holding tank, molded counter tops with stainless steel sink, separate shower stall, teak shower grate, independent shower sump pump, hanging and linen locker, and opening port w/screen.

The master stateroom is aft to port with a large, comfortable 6’6” X 5’9” double berth, a door for complete privacy, hanging locker, vanity and plenty of storage.
