Soler-38 Fast Cruiser is performance yacht for coastal or ocean cruising with small crew. The boat has unlimited range of navigation and CE category "A" Ocean. Good protection from elements in fully enclosed pilothouse. The boat is optimised for 2 person or single handling. The interior layout is custom and built as per customer choice, from 1 owners cabin to 3 cabin layout.
The hull and deck are made of aluminium alloy with composite house and cocpit. The interior can be practical and minimalist with painted surfaces or more luxury with wood veneered panels. The bulb keel is lifted with electric winch with manual back-up, the keel is fixed in low and upper position with strong pins to prevent any damages in case of grounding or collision with floating objects.
All sheets and halyards are lead to the cocpit for easy handling by small crew, no need to go on deck. Watertight bulkheads and compartments create the big average flotation volume. The basic systems are very simple and concentrated in one compartment for easy access and safety.
The symmetrical heeled waterlines in combination with balanced sail plan and two rudder blades perform the excellent steering in any weather conditions. The main idea in the concept - fast cruising, simplicity and reliability.
The yacht will be built by the professional boatyard in Netherlands upon order.
