Construction

Construction GRP
Underwater profile Semi-Displacement
Finish Gelcoat finish

Total LOA anchor to swim platform 40'8".

New bottom paint Fall 2018.

Hinged radar mast allows bridge clearance to be reduced to 13'.

This boat has the extended keel to improve tracking, first introduced in 2015.

Heavy hand-laid fiberglass solid hull construction. Vinylester resins used in the outer layers to help prevent blistering. Epoxy barrier coating and hull paint below waterline. Integral grid structure is designed to provide a very sturdy, stiff hull.

Decks, cabin sides, and pilothouse roof are heavily laminated FRP and cored with PVC foam.

All handrails are of double-rung design for safety, and are welded and beautifully polished.

Deck hardware is sturdy and high-quality stainless steel.

FRP fuel and holding tanks. Stainless steel water tanks.

Interior floors are marine plywood laid on aluminum joists, and topped with solid teak and holly strips. This boat also has the composite interior floor construction with a rubber-cork inner layer for sound attenuation -- a change made permanent with the subsequent 38E model. Extensive sound attenuation methods and materials surround the engineroom.

Interior varnishing is hand-brushed and hand-sanded two-part polyurethane applied in multiple layers for toughness and longevity, and topped with a final two-part satin spray coat. Many hours of labor are involved to achieve this level of long-lasting beauty.

Boarding is very convenient from astern via a large swim platform though the transom door, or through either of the side-entry doors. The cockpit is large enough for several deck chairs, and is sheltered by a hardtop cover. Thoughtful design includes anti-drip edges and stainless steel drain spouts on the upper deck to reduce rainwater draining into the cockpit. The lazarette below the cockpit provides a large storage volume. Hawsecleats make for convenient and unobtrusive attachment of mooring lines.

The sturdily-built wide sliding aft cabin door provides entry to the full-beam saloon, which is much larger than would be expected in a boat this size, and is surrounded by large, opening windows for light and ventilation. The teak construction is beautifully done and makes for an attractive, nautical interior. Floors are actually topped with teak and holly strip planking -- not a veneer or synthetic. Wood blinds provide privacy and add to the beauty.

The galley features granite countertops, a 9 cu. ft. Nova Kool refrigerator/freezer, and a Force 10 propane range. Above the galley is a drop-down cabinet for galley storage, with a second optional drop-down storage cabinet aft of the galley. Also aft of the galley is a place for a comfortable chair or recliner (the chair shown in the photos is not included, but you'd want your own comfy chair anyway!). A microwave is hidden behind louvered doors in the pantry cabinet.

The dining settee has a high/low table that converts to a cocktail table, and the settee will make into a queen-sized berth. A day head, with shower capability, is immediately forward and convenient to the salon. Access to the engineroom is available through a watertight door in the dayhead. Upholstery throughout is high-quality synthetic leather.

The pilothouse is just two steps up from the salon and integrated into the living spaces. The L-shaped dinette allows three or four guests to enjoy the pilothouse while underway. A conversion option creates a single berth or additional seating when needed. The helm station is to starboard, and features a sliding helm chair with fold-up bolster for leaning if desired. Forward visibility from the helm station is excellent, and because of the low pilothouse design it's possible to view the aft quarters directly from the helm seat also (unusual in a pilothouse model). Sliding pilothouse doors port and starboard allow easy access to the dock, the foredeck or to the flybridge. Ventilation is provided by an opening forward window, opening side windows, and an overhead hatch, in addition to the sliding doors.

Footwells with high bulwarks provide security when exiting the pilothouse, and the wide, full-size steps to the flybridge make access safe and easy. There are no vertical ladders!

The master cabin has a queen bed, hanging lockers to port and starboard, storage drawers, two storage cabinets, bookshelves, and separate head and shower compartments. Light and ventilation is from two opening portlights and an overhead hatch.

Both heads use Dometic Masterflush macerating-style toilets.

The flybridge has two pedestal seats and an L-shaped settee. A bimini top is installed, and there is a canvas flybridge cover also. As with the entire exterior of the boat, the design of the flybridge is uncluttered and intended to be simple to maintain and easy to clean. The top deck and the stairs to the flybridge have side curtains for safety. A 650# Low Profile davit crane is installed, and the boat deck is large enough to accommodate up to an 11' RIB with console and 20 hp engine (not included, nor is the small Portland Pudgy dinghy shown incidentally in some photos).

Cabin heat is a Webasto forced-air diesel-fired furnace.

LED interior lighting.

3 burner propane Stove

Broker's Comments

VIRTUAL TOUR - VIDEO - OVER 100 PHOTOS - FULL SPECS CAN BE VIEWED OF THIS VESSEL!
This 2016 Helmsman Trawlers 38 Pilothouse has only 270 hours and appears as she did on the day she was delivered to its owners. There are no interior screw holes, tape residues, alterations, modifications, or anything else to prevent a new owner from personalizing this boat as if it were new. She is equipped with a complete SIMRAD nav electronics suite including HD radar, 16" displays, structure scanning sonar and forward looking sonar too. She also has diesel-fired cabin heating, a bimini top, cockpit side entry doors, upgraded engine, and bow and stern thrusters. She is for sale because the owners have a new Helmsman Trawlers 43 on order.

Standard design features of the model include an amazingly spacious and inviting salon with a day head immediately accessible, separate master head and shower compartments, and an extended pilothouse that serves as a living and dining area in addition to its piloting function.

This is a very roomy and comfortable boat, frequently mistaken as being much larger than it is, yet fits in a 40 foot slip. Its 380 hp electronically-controlled Cummins QSB6.7 common-rail engine turns down nicely, and operates smoothly and quietly. She performs frugally at 7 or 8 knots, and has additional power when needed.

A new Helmsman Trawlers 38 would require six months or more to build -- this late model example is available now, appears in excellent condition and is offered at a lower price.

Excluded from the sale are the salon chair, bedding and towels shown in photos.

SEATTLE LAKE UNION Moorage available.
