Nice shape on this well maintained Ericson 38-200. Well cared for and well loved by her current owners.. Known as a very sea kindly and efficient sailer, the popular Ericson 38-200 is still highly regarded and sought after. Introduced in 1980, the Ericson 38 was designed by the incomparable Bruce King whose talent for drawing beautiful boats of near perfect proportions ranks him with the likes of Herreshoff, Stevens, Rhodes, and Tripp. She carries enough amenities to keep a family of five happy for a long cruise.

Sleeps 4 in 2 staterooms, dinette sleeps 2 and settee sleeps 1 to accommodate 7 owners and guests.

The head and separate shower stall are located aft, for a slightly larger forward stateroom. The forward stateroom is complete with two hanging lockers, storage compartments; and a dressing seat. The owner’s stateroom is located aft. This Ericson has a convertible dinette with facing settees, pedestal galley, and set-down nav station.

The master stateroom is aft with a double berth and tufted topper pillow top for berth cushion, a door for complete privacy, hanging locker, vanity, and plenty of storage.

The main salon is a very good place for socializing, and when the night is over, the dinette converts into a third double bunk! This Ericson 38 also has new foam in some main cabin settee cushions, and custom fitted carpet to cover cabin sole. The entire cabin interior is varnished!
