Broadblue 38

Designed by:

Broadblue 38

A very roomy and comfortable boat with high load-carrying capacity, the Broadblue 38 was designed and built for serious cruising. Cabins have ample headroom, there is a generous amount of storage space and interiors are stylish and well-finished. There are three double cabins and one heads compartment in each hull.

The mast is stepped at the forward end of the cockpit making all halyards accessible without going on deck. With the mast well aft, the rig is characterised by a relatively small mainsail and large genoa.

The boat is a development of the Prout 38 design launched in 1998. It was relaunched as Broadblue Prestige 38 and later rebranded Broadblue 38.

Multihull type:

Hull and deck are both one-piece mouldings in hand laid glass fibre, using powder-bound mat, biaxial woven rovings, isopthalic resin, and Kevlar reinforcement in high load areas. Below the waterline, the hulls are solid laminate, while the topsides and deck incorporate an end grain balsa core. The hull and deck join is fully bonded and protected by a substantial rubbing strake. Keels are integrally moulded and sealed off from the hulls, forming a double bottom.

Mast-aft sloop rig, fully battened main, large roller reefing genoa, optional staysail.
