38' Beneteau 2015 Serenity


Owner wants her sold and has authorized a major price reduction.

Serenity may be a 2015 but she shows and looks like a new boat. With only 54 hours on the 30HP Yanmar and very little use (the stove has never been used) this vessel is priced to sell and is a great buy. It's like buying a new boat at a used boat price.

Here is a recent review of this vessel:

"The flexible nature of the interior and cockpit will appeal to singles, young couples, small families and to those whose children have sailed out of the house. Under sail and power the 38 handled exceptionally well and with a manageable sail plan this boat will have buyers away from the dock and under sail in short order for a day sail or weekend. For those with aspirations of longer distance cruising, I see the Oceanis 38 as an excellent coastal cruising platform that, with the right gear added, will be comfortable to live aboard at anchor, on a mooring or at a dock and will also make for a boat that can complete respectable daily runs."

"All in all, it looks as though the Beneteau Oceanis 38 is going to live up to the hype it has been getting, and for good reason. With a design that goes outside the box, we’ll surely be seeing lots of these boats out for day sails, weekends and longer cruises."

The Beneteau Oceanis 38 shares the angular good looks of the rest of the Oceanis line and also breaks new ground in the area of interior design. Like most of Beneteau’s recent designs, the Oceanis 38 has aggressive angular lines with a nearly plumb bow and a slightly reverse transom. The low cabintop provides a nice profile while belying the amount of volume and headroom below.

Beam is carried well aft to a wide stern, but the boat’s twin rudders allow the hull to grip the water regardless of heel angle. A hard chine flowing from well forward all the way aft also helps keep the Oceanis 38 sailing up to five degrees flatter than it otherwise would. For anyone who’s had to brace themselves in a gust, that certainly makes a difference.

The hull is molded in polyester, with a hull liner bonded in at the beginning of the assembly process to increase stiffness. The deck is injection molded with a Saerfoam core to increase strength and reduce weight, after which it is secured to the hull with adhesives and screws, and then “trimmed” with a 1-inch toerail. The keel is cast iron. The rudder stocks are stainless steel.

The 9/10ths fractional rig is supported by double sweptback spreaders and flies 748 square feet of sail split between a 103 percent genoa on a Facnor furler and a traditional mainsail, built by Elvstrom. The deck-stepped Z-Spars mast has been moved aft and is centered over the keel to create a slightly larger foretriangle for more power. Most of the rest of the deck hardware is Harken, including both primary and cabintop winches. 
Twin helms open up the middle of the cockpit, and there is good access from the companionway all the way aft, where Beneteau’s signature hinged transom drops down into a formidable swim platform that seems to add another dimension to the deck plan. The side decks are wide and easy to maneuver on, and there are good handholds on the cabin top.
