The 34 Pilot's big sister, the Vancouver 38 Pilot is similarly conceived.
With the comfort and security of a raised deck saloon, everyone - the pilot included - can shelter from the elements while still enjoying 360 degree views.
The sailing performance is excellent with the same rig as the Vancouver 38 but with a self tacking staysail for convenience.
The interior volume for a 38 footer is vast, with three double sleeping cabins - all large, two heads compartments - and a large galley with space for every modern convenience.
It can be finished in a choice of timbers and tailored to the owner's exact requirements. There are spaces to fit any manner of optional equipment including generator, watermaker, fridge and freezer.
The Vancouver 38 Pilot is not a motor sailer but a powerful sailing yacht built for long distance cruising.
