Bristol Aft Cockpit 38.8
Bristol 38.8 with Aft Cockpit and Shallow Draft centre board
The Vendors are selling their wonderful floating home, SV Little Pickle, because they have been away from home for far too long due to the Covid pandemic. They need to go back to Europe to see family and friends they have not seen for years. I can tell you, that this decision has not been made easily.
They are currently in Fiji, as is the boat, and are looking for a very quick sale for SV Little Pickle.
This is your opportunity to own a great boat at a great price.
There are some jobs that need doing, but despite these, you could climb on board and sail away tomorrow.
She is a 1982 Bristol 38.8. She has a 44hp universal engine with 3015h. Super reliable and never not started. This boat is one of the most reliable blue water yachts you could own and along with that she is perfect for shallow water cruising. She is a long-keeled yacht with a retractable centre board, drawing 1.6m with board up and 3m down. Meaning you can sneak into the bluest lagoons, often shallower than the cats.
She is an absolute delight to handle and set up for single hand cruising with everything accessible from the cockpit.
