ALL Helmsman Trawlers feature proven, solid construction methods, exceptional craftsmanship, abundant use of quality materials, and capable, modern, wide-beam hull designs.
The Helmsman Trawlers 38 Pilothouse is an innovative fast trawler design featuring a large “low rise” pilothouse that is open to the salon and prevents the separation common in other pilothouse models. The full-beam main salon is expansive, comfortable, and richly nautical. And a second day head is unusual to find in a boat this size, but an extremely practical feature with guests aboard. The dinette and day head can be enclosed to create a private suite for occasional guests, and a layout featuring a second dedicated stateroom is also available. A commanding flybridge, high bow, covered aft deck, deep pilothouse side-deck footwells and wide flybridge access stairs port and starboard increase this boat's practicality and safety in all weather conditions.
Helmsman Trawlers® has revised the 38 Pilothouse model, with the new designation of 38E Pilothouse. Modifications to the deck design add an extended cockpit cover, improve rain drip control around the pilothouse roof, and modify the forward window shape and the vessel’s overall appearance. In addition, the 38E now includes even better engine noise control with additional sound attenuation materials included in the multi-layered construction of all interior floors.
Construction quality is immediately evidenced by thick decks sections, deep gel coat, sturdy rails, quality hardware, abundant teak (interior only!) and extraordinary fit and finish.
The Helmsman Trawlers 38 Pilothouse was designed for those who want to cruise comfortably and economically, enjoy the spacious feeling of a much larger boat while still fitting into a 40’ slip, and surround themselves with the beauty of well-crafted hardwood joinery and other fine materials.
Standard propulsion is a Cummins QSB 6.7 litre 250 hp electronically-controlled common rail engine. Other hp ratings (up to 550 hp) are available, as are other brands of engines.
Minimal exterior maintenance and reliable, economical propulsion systems allow owners to spend more time cruising. A wide range of options and custom configurations are available for order. We’d like to talk with you about your ideas!
Price is for the base model, delivered U.S. west coast, including all U.S. duties. U.S. east coast delivery costs may differ. Canadians and other non-U.S. residents should contact us for pricing on non-U.S. deliveries.

The large master stateroom is forward, and features an island queen bed, cedar-lined hanging closets port and starboard, drawers beneath the bed (and additional storage further forward under the bed), reading lights, bookshelves, two opening portlights, and an opening overhead hatch. The master head is port, with a big separate shower compartment to starboard. A door encloses the stateroom for privacy.
The pilothouse is just two steps up from the saloon, and features a raised dinette large enough to seat three adults. It's easy to enjoy the view while underway or in port from this vantage. The dinette optionally converts to a single pilot berth. The helm is located to starboard -- the view over the bow and aft to the port and starboard quarters makes docking easy. The helm seat slides out of the way, and sliding pilothouse doors port and starboard provide immediate access to the side decks, the bow, the flybridge or to the dock. In addition to the sliding doors, ventilation and light is provided by opening side windows, an opening center windshield, and and an opening overhead hatch. Overhead handholds are provided for safety, and are beautifully crafted in teak like the joinery throughout the boat. A nav station large enough to work with charts (including hinged storage beneath) is provided -- a feature overlooked in many of today's boats. Additional flat counter/working space is provided to starboard behind the helm seat.
The expansive salon takes full advantage of the boat's generous beam, and feels like the salon of a much larger boat. With an L-shaped galley to starboard, a dinette to port (which converts to a queen berth), and space for a recliner or other comfortable free-standing chair aft starboard, the saloon is designed for entertaining and comfortable living at sea! Storage includes a microwave cabinet and pantry forward on the centerline, an entertainment center and storage cabinet (with louvered doors, as throughout the boat) to port, and a bookshelf with storage behind sliding doors to starboard. The galley includes many drawers and cabinets, and an overhead storage cabinet the folds up into the overhead to avoid obstructing the view. Overhead teak handholds and an elegant teak/holly beam with hanging knees add a nautical flair and serve serious purpose.The day head to port is accessed via a sliding cabin door and is two steps down from the saloon. The day head includes a watertight door for access to the engineroom.
The engineroom gives an amazing amount of working space around the engine, and includes a built-in workbench/tool storage. The room is well-lit and extremely orderly. Wire and tubing runs are precise and accessible. Deck plates make movement easy. Through-hulls are readily at-hand.
The covered aft cockpit is roomy enough for up to four deck chairs.
The flybridge is positioned aft of the raised pilothouse, providing a sleeker appearance and a lower profile. Seating is provided for three in addition to the helmsman. An additional pedestal seat is an option. The boat deck will accommodate a 10.5' RIB. All railings are welded stainless steel, with finely polished welds. Access to the flybridge is via wide stairs (no ladders!) port and starboard from the pilothouse, for exceptional safety and security.
Standard engine -- Cummins QSB 6.7-250 hp engine, electronically-controlled common-rail design. Optional engine choices include the entire Cummins QSB series -- 305 hp through 550 hp. Other engines including Lugger, John Deere, and Isuzu may be specified.
