"Buzz" is a fast, exciting and very easy to sail yacht. The Sydney 38 is designed for coastal and club racing and is just as capable offshore. With an appealing interior, "Buzz" also lends itself to take in a cruise or two. With its impressive performance, the Sydney 38 also competes favorably on the many race courses around the world, (PHRF-NE is 27). The result of the design is a very stiff yacht with high righting moment and moderate sail area. "BUZZ" is a wonderful racing boat whether going around the cans or racing long distance offshore.
