ECLIPSE is a beautiful and lightly used one-owner Heritage model True North 38 from renowned RI builder Pearson Composites. The True North 38 is well known to be one of the most comfortable riding and most distinctive looking New England tradition "workboats" built. ECLIPSE has several special owner designed custom details and is especially pretty with a black awl grip hull and light gray canvas back curtains with Navy blue and white striped cushions for the optional aft cockpit seating. The plumb bow, graceful low sheerline, the sexy tumblehome, and retro reverse transom all combine to create a yacht of striking beauty.
ECLIPSE is very well equipped with a full suite of electronics, Satellite TV, the optional moveable cockpit seating with two tables that can easily be stored away. There is a generator and reverse cycle air conditioning, Frigiboat refrigeration, microwave oven, propane stove, and lovely ultrasuede fabrics with Ultraleather fabrics on the helm and navigators seats.
A new 480 hp Yanmar was installed in 2010 resulting from a faulty service fuel delivery repair by the distributor. As a result, there are only about 200 hours recorded.
Thiis is a beautiful boat that is priced to SELL!

BELOW DECKS is a large vee berth with insert cushion with light blue-gray Ultrasuede fabrics. A curved varnished teak bulkhead, varnished teak hull ceiling strips, and teak drawer and locker faces add a nice touch of wood below. A large optional shelf over the berth adds to storage when traveling. To starboard is a head with shower finished in a Polystone surface. To port are drawers and a hanging locker. A flat screen TV connected to Tracvision satellite is mounted on a swivel to face the berth or to face out into the cabin.
Up three steps, the PILOTHOUSE area is exceptionally large for a boat of this size and includes a helm station to starboard with full size galley aft. To port there is a double companion bench with fold-down backrest. Aft to port is a convertible dinette with benches that pull out to sit six for dinner. This area quickly converts to a couch for reading and relaxing and becomes a queen berth quickly. A dinette table is varnished teak and lowers electrically. The pilothouse and the fwd cabin are served by dual Reverse Cycle Air/Heat systems. The Pilothouse is beautifully finished in varnished teak and includes light blue-gray Ultrasuede settee cushions with gray Ultraleather fabric for the helm and navigators seats.
The GALLEY is up in the pilothouse with a full view of the surroundings and includes a three burner Princess propane stove cooktop with counter cover, stainless steel Frigiboat AC/DC under counter refrigerator with keel cooler, microwave oven, and double-basin, polished, stainless steel sink plus lots of storage. The counter material is Polystone.
The very large COCKPIT is aft of the bridgedeck area. The cockpit is ideal for entertaining and fun on the water. Open both transom doors and pull your dinghy into the cockpit or simply enjoy your porch on the water. The optional moving cockpit seats provide flexible seating for a crowd. These are stylishly upholstered in blue and white stripe Sunbrella fabric and there are gray colored vinly covers when not in use. Two optional cockpit tables may be mounted to sit six or more for dinner and cocktails or stored away in custom storage bags under the cockpit seats.
Numerous drawers, lockers, and bins provide ample storage. Four opening ports, four deck hatches, an opening center windshield, and side windows allow wonderful air flow throughout. Lighting is with halogen lamps controlled by dimmers. There are also reading lights up and down, a reading light by the helm, and a light switch just inside the cockpit provides light in the galley even when all the lights are off. Low level courtesy lights are installed inside and direct and indirect lights around the cockpit give the boat a wonderful ambiance.

Hull and Deck
Eclipse is made by one of the most respected long-standing boat builders in New England. Pearson Composites (ex. TPI) is renown for quality fiberglass work dating back over 50 years and for introducing production SCRIMP system vacuum infusion laminating technology to the industry. Using vinylester resin and stitched glass fabrics and end grain balsa core, this laminate is built for long term structural integrity. Extended hull warranties remain in effect.
This hull design delivers a soft, stable ride with excellent tracking and a naturally low riding angle at any speed so your visibility from the helm is excellent even when you are moving slower. True North owners have said that this is the most comfortable boat underway they have ever owned. Ideally suited for a cruising couple, the large pilothouse, galley up arrangement, and extra large cockpit with double opening transom doors provides the ultimate platform for fun on the water. Wide side decks, and stainless steel grab rails make movement around the boat safe. The cockpit has the original reverse transom doors which when opened allow enough space to slide a dinghy right into the cockpit. A stainless steel swim ladder pulls out from the stern. Cockpit seating with striped Sunbrella cushions are customized to create a full forward facing bench and seating for eight for dinner or they move to the sides to completely open the transom.

Exhaust is discharged under water for a fume free ride when underway with bypass when idling. Shaft is coupled to an Aquadrive anti-vibration/thrust bearing system. The prop is protected by the fiberglass skeg and bronze casting. The engine room is well insulated for quiet running. Steering is hydraulic with power assist. 6kw BOW THRUSTER with joy stick control makes for easy handling around the docks.

Eclipse is a single-owner late model True North 38 with a recent Yanmar and all the most desirable options. The owners have enjoyed cruising her locally in New York and New England waters and have cared for her very well indeed. Their plans are changing now and they are serious about selling. Eclipse is priced competitively so call now for more information and a chance to view her soon.
The owner will supply a tecnichian from True North go through all the systems and sea trial the boat with the new owner.
Owner's personal effects may be on board at the time of your viewing and if not specifically included in the details of this listing, the buyer should assume the unlisted gear will not convey with this sale.
Very cleverly, the dinette area can be expanded when needed and does not take up too much space when just a few people are onboard. Its innovative, sliding seat arrangement expands seating from four to six people and easily converts into a double berth for overnight guests. Our answer to cruising with young children is an optional "sleeping loft" above the twin v-berths. Put the kids down early, and you have the rest of the boat to yourself.
Easy entertaining is high on everyone's list, so we kept the galley up, near the cockpit. Thirsty, hungry crew can step up to the counter from the cockpit without worrying about wet bathing suits or sandy feet. And whomever has galley duty will have no complaints, as the 360? view is the best view onboard.
Of course, all this well thought-out space is no fun if you're busy maintaining and fixing things. So everything about the True North 38 is designed to keep things simple.Starting with the dependable, single diesel engine and well-protected prop and shaft, the True North 38 takes its cue from the legendary New England workboats. You'll find no extra fluff and frills, just the things you need to enjoy your experience on the water.
The True North 38 is an ideal size for a couple with or without kids. There's plenty of room for supplies and gear for a two-week vacation, and several owners have taken more ambitious, lengthy cruises. You?ll be very comfortable yet not burdened by all the hard-to-maintain gadgets that have made boating too complicated and expensive. Equally appealing is how easy it is to make the boat ready for those spur-of-the- moment adventures. With a True North 38, you?ll find yourself taking her out more often without the need for time-consuming preparation. Just hop onboard and go. When you return, sweep it down, hose it off and she?ll be ready for you next time.
Of course being comfortable is vitally important at sea, and the True North 38 boasts an incredibly soft and comfortable ride even in rough conditions. They have often been spotted going out an inlet or protected harbor in conditions that keep much larger yachts tied up at the dock. When things turn nasty, you can depend on your True North 38 to get you home safely.
Take a close look at our specifications and equipment lists for the Sport, Heritage, and Classic models. You'll see how much thinking went into the True North 38 series.
