She was originally built in Germany and marketed as a sea explorer , more commonly known as a Trader 38. She has a huge flybridge with seating for up to 8 people. In previous ownership she was wintered ashore in Holland every year for 27 years. Her current owner has used her for extensive cruising on the Continent, single handed and describes her as a comfortable live aboard boat with excellent economical engines with low hours. When her current owner purchased her in 2007 she was in a state of disrepair, but he has spent the past 4 years completely renovating the boat, re-designing the interior with a large galley forward and a larger saloon seating area. She is in fine condition and would suit a cruising person or couple.
