Broker Remarks

This Wauquiez Hood 38 is the preferred Mk II version, combining a design by noted naval architect Ted Hood with the quality build of the Henri Wauquiez Boatyard, the finished product was excellent. The Hood 38 is a capable blue water cruiser with very comfortable accommodation, her performance surprises most as she is quick yet very well balanced.
Her centreboard allows for versatility whether exploring shallow coastal areas or crossing oceans. 
The current owners have upgraded the boat with some very tasteful touches to her appearance. The galley has been completely refitted in 2017 with new worktop, oven & sink, even the internal configuration of the cupboards have been changed for the better.
Other improvements have been made to the interior upholstery, with this being recovered in 2016 & looks superb. The exterior has also had a facelift with the livery strip being professionally resprayed in grey making her appear more modern, this with the addition of new colour coded canvas sprayhood, cockpit enclosure, stackpack & UV strip really makes the boat look great! 
This Wauquiez Hood 38 is well presented, she has excellent accommodation & feels notably light & airy, with the new upholstery & has very good standing headroom throughout (1.95m in the saloon), as well as long berths.
