RECKLESS is a beautiful and extremely well maintained Nantucket 38. She is being offered by her long term owner along with a 40' berth in the San Francisco Marina West Basin adjacent to the St. Francis Yacht Club. The slip is a downwind slip in the desirable calm inner basin section at the foot of Divisadero St.

The Nantucket 38 Design is unique as it incorporates a flush deck, center cockpit, aft cabin yacht with high freeboard which expands the interior space, providing excellent headroom throughout. She features a cruising underbody with a modified fin keel and a skeg hung rudder. Storage space is ample for offshore cruising. The layout is very unique and well planned, providing comfort and spaciousness.

Australian Yacht designer, Peter Cole, has many successful yachts that were produced to his credit. Peter Cole is from Sydney Harbor and he was involved in many of the Americas Cup campaigns. Many of his designs sailed in the Sidney to Hobart Race. Mr. Cole’s design of the Nantucket 38 demonstrated that he possessed an amazing ability to think outside the box. In the Nantucket 38 you will find every cubic inch of space has been utilized. The interior of the Nantucket 38 feels far larger than her actual length. Once aboard, many say that the 38 feels like the interior of a 50 footer.

The Nantucket 38 was laid up by hand to stand up long term to the rigors of the sea with a very strong and stiff hull and deck. She is solid fiberglass and no wood coring is used in her construction, including in the decks. This creates a yacht without the typical issues associated with core issues, found in many yachts as they age and begin to spring leaks in the deck hardware. The design incorporates an encapsulated fixed keel, filled with 8300 pounds of ballast, which eliminates keel bolts as well as any chance of the keel coming off of the hull! She has a 5.5 foot shoal draft hybrid design keel which reduces the drag compared to the typical full keeled blue water cruiser, yet maintains the directional stability of a full keel. The skeg protects the rudder from damage. The propeller is also well protected from damage and entanglement.
