Introduced in 2000, the San Juan 38 is a top-tier runabout with
an impressive mix of cutting-edge styling, state-of-the-art
construction, and luxury-class accommodations. Her foam-cored
hull is vacuum-bagged, and the use of Kevlar in the construction
process greatly increases strength and impact resistance. The
heart of the San Juan 38 is her semi-enclosed pilothouse with its
360-degree visibility, convertible dinette, and elegant teak helm
station. Port and starboard sun pads, extending aft into the cockpit,
lift to provide excellent service access to the engines. Belowdecks,
the San Juan’s traditional two-stateroom interior is richly
appointed with varnished teak cabinetry, faux granite counters,
and a teak-and-holly sole. The layout has a V-berth forward and a
queen berth amidships, abaft the companionway stairs. The arched
doorways are notable, as are the quality fabrics and hardware.
Additional features include a transom seat, bow thruster, custom
drop curtain, wet bar, and teak exterior trim. A light boat for her
size, Yanmar 350hp diesel inboards cruise the San Juan 38 in the
mid 20s and reach a top speed of close to 30 knots.
