Yachts up to 12m


The Chieftain 38 is a lovely centre cockpit grp sloop with two private staterooms and a bright light oak interior with leather upholstery.

The cockpit has a fully enclosed hard top with strata glass front clears and full forward vision with sides and back removable. Ideally set up for single handed sailing with plotter on pedestal, allowing for dry warm sailing.

A tidy yacht, well maintained which has just been antifouled. Would make a great coastal or Bluewater sailing yacht.
