Broker's Comments

The classic Jack Powles 38ft Flybridge Cruiser were the first of several of the fast cruisers designed by the respected Bernard Olenski.

With their generous deck space, wide side decks and uncluttered foredeck, these boats are comfortable to both cruise and spend time aboard, living and entertaining. The Powles 38 has a spacious, raised aft deck, cockpit seating, and flybridge, which is accessible with steps from the aft deck.

On visiting this boat, I found it to have a light and spacious feel, with walk-through headroom throughout, plenty of windows, a spacious galley, alongwith a large and open saloon area, perfect for life aboard in comfort and entertaining guests. The space and comfort extends to all areas of the accommodation, with four of the berths in two separate cabins, including two, large, single bunks in the forward cabin and a second, large, double, cabin with en-suite facilities, including a shower.

This boat is a great opportunity for a variety of potential uses. The boat is an ideal platform for comfortable and reliable extended cruising and as a liveaboard opportunity.

This boat also comes with a Boat Safety Certificate valid until 2022.

This boat remains on the market, whilst the owner is currently having the engines refurbished.

These boat details are subject to contract.
