I am a USCG Licensed Captain. I have been a highly rated Airbnb host for six years and have been around boats my entire life. I have owned and operated many types of sail and powerboats. San Francisco Bay provides beautiful views and wildlife; including harbor seals, dolphins, and amazing birds. In addition, the microclimates in the bay mean you can go from boisterous conditions to nearly tropical calm in just minutes. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with guests! The Downeaster 38 is a classic, bluewater cruising sailboat designed by renowned naval architect, Henry Morschadt. First introduced in 1975, it quickly gained a reputation as a sturdy and seaworthy vessel that could handle any weather conditions and is especially well suited for your adventure on San Francisco Bay. The Downeaster 38 has a long keel and a full-bodied hull with a moderate beam, giving it excellent stability and a comfortable ride. Its sleek, traditional lines and solid fiberglass construction make it a handsome and reliable choice for cruising sailors. The interior of the Downeaster 38 is spacious and well-appointed, with teak joinery and plenty of natural light. The layout typically includes a large salon with a U-shaped settee and a centerline table, a galley with ample counter space and storage, and a comfortable aft cabin with a double berth. There may also be a forward cabin with additional berths and storage. The cockpit of the Downeaster 38 is deep and secure, with high coamings and a wide companionway. The sail controls are easily accessible from the helm, making it easy for solo sailors or small crews to handle the boat in any conditions. Overall, the Downeaster 38 is a classic cruising sailboat with a proven track record of seaworthiness and comfort. It is an excellent choice for sailors who value traditional design, sturdy construction, and reliable performance!
