The Aerodyne 38's cockpit is 11.5 ft long! Not only is it well laid out for a racing crew, but in cruising mode adds considerable outdoor living space and yet will drain quickly through the transom should a sea come aboard. The cockpit seats are wide and long enough to sleep on. Both traveler, mainsheet and primary winches are accesible from helm.
The wheel is large to allow steering from the side-deck, and well-placed foot-cleats are provided for the helmsman when standing behind the wheel. There is also a cleat down the center of the "crew" cockpit for bracing when sailing upwind, and the space between the seats, over 3 ft. is wide enough for a good cockpit table. There is a big locker to port, and propane is in a dedicated locker to starboard, aft.
All sail controls lead aft to rope-clutches and winches on the cabin top. Main halyard, reefing, vang, spinnaker halyard, headsail furling, bowsprit and spinnaker controls are all handled from here. The bowsprit retracts into a waterproof housing, with service access down below.
Going forward, the side-decks are wide and unobstructed, helped by the outboard shrouds, and the anchor is stowed in its own flush locker, which also houses the recessed jib-furling drum.
The Aerodyne 38 has an innovative recessed toe rail running around the perimeter of the entire deck giving a secure footing, and making it comfortable for hiking out.

The entire Aerodyne 38 is built of Epoxy resin, the best material for composite boat construction, and considerably stronger, tougher and more durable than the polyester or vinylester resins used in conventional production boat hulls. This, combined with directional E-glass fabrics, high quality core materials appropriate for each area and Carbon-fibre reinforced structural framing ensures high strength, stiffness and longevity associated with one-off custom boats. Similarly, the Aerodyne 38 is painted with an Awlgrip finish which gives a tougher, high-gloss finish than gel-coat.
The Aerodyne 38 has a well-proportioned fractional rig set well back in the boat to balance the non-overlapping jib's size with that of the main. We have now designed several boats with this rig, and can assure that it is easy to handle efficiently for a given size and much easier to tack than a rig with large, overlapping genoas, and works over a much wider wind range; between drifting and 24 knots true. The jib furling drum is recessed below the deck so it is as efficient for racing as it is for cruising, and the big mainsail, which features single-line reefing, has a long traveler to allow its power to be easily controlled.Shrouds are outboard at the hull for strength and better staying angles. This allows a lighter mast and rigging. The Aerodyne 38 will sail well under mainsail alone.
