38’ (11.6 m) is a popular size for a mid-range express cruiser and many models are on the market -- but all builders are constrained by pretty much the same geometric design parameters and propulsion physics. So how does a builder differentiate its product? Cruisers Yachts does it with exterior styling and with an interior lavished in exotic woods, high-style materials, and fine fit-and-finish. The 38 Express (formerly known as the 380 Express) also has an optional mid cabin arrangement that allow an owner to match the design to an individual lifestyle and planned use. For those people who have not been aboard the Cruisers Yachts 38 recently, we suggest a visit. The reason is that the builder is using many new materials and décor items that are at once modern, classy and practical.
