"Loon" is a lovely example of this highly sought after Ted Hood design. She has been maintained to the highest standards and has been consistently upgraded over the course of her life - most recently with a new Halsey Main and 135% Genoa in 2011, upgraded rigging, new dodger in 2010 (cleaned and restiched 2013), new LED cabin lights and much more.
"Loon" has been stored inside a heated building during the winter 2012/2013. During this time, many upgrades to the electrical and mechanical systems have been completed including new Xantrex inverter / charger with remote panel, new Balmar Max Charge alternator/regulator, new thru hulls and more. In addition, the annual maintenance including fresh bottom paint, engine service, hull washed/waxed and exterior and interior varnish has been completed. She is ready to go for the season!
"Loon" offers the famed Hood keel centerboard/shoal draft hull configuration which offers shoal draft sailing, uncommon upwind sailing abilities in a boat that is both practical and comfortable with genuine off-shore characteristics not found in most boats her size.
She will be in the water and commissioned for the season in early April. Please click on FULL SPECS for additional information and photographs.
There is NO SALES TAX if purchased and kept in the state of Rhode Island. A mooring is available for a buyer interested in keeping her on the Pawcatuck River in Westerly, Rhode Island. Please inquire.

Beginning forward is the master stateroom offering an offset double berth to port with settee, lockers, shelves and hanging locker opposite.
Next aft to port is a large enclosed head with entry from the stateroom as well as the salon. The head includes a teak grate, stainless steel sink, storage lockers, Lectra head system and a large mirror. The toilet area is easilly isolated from the rest of the head with a curtain for double use as an isolated shower compartment draining to a separate sump. Opposite the head is a bureau with 4 drawers and a hanging "wet locker".
The Main Salon is next aft and offers settee berths (that convert to double bunks) port and starboard with lockers outboard and below as well as a large varnished teak drop leaf table between. The table has built-in teak cutlery drawers and a liquor locker below.
Next aft to port is the "U" shaped galley which features a double Corian sink, Corian counter tops, a Shipmate stainless steel gimballed three burner propane stove and a stainless steel lined large icebox. The ice box is efficient and offers a large access opening that keeps food accessible. Storage space is plentiful with mahogany dish lockers and foot storage bins.
Opposite to starboard is a sit-down navigator's station and large "double" quarter berth with ample storage below.
The interior joinery is lovely varnished teak with a varnished teak and holly sole. Cushions are Ultraleather in very good condition. The cabin lighting has been upgraded recently with LED lights and systems. There is an abundance of natural light and ventilation with four dorade vents, six opening ports with screens and two large overhead hatches with screens.
Throughout this Bristol 38.8 has been kept in remarkably nice condition and she is a pleasure to show.
