Cruiser Forum

?Turquoise Serenity? offers the perfect blend of performance, comfort, and style. Arrive ahead of the pack while cruising in high comfort. The First 38s5 puts an emphasis on performance, but with fully fitted cruising interiors to a high standard. Rich interior accommodations combine with a practical deck layout to produce a vessel with a great mix of class and style, while maintaining cruise worthy features like good stowage, a well conceived galley, plenty of privacy for owners and their guests, easy to transit decks, a spacious cockpit with convertible table, easy sail handling and much more.
?Turquoise Serenity? is a splendid example of the two-cabin owner?s version of this vessel, with separate private ensuite heads for both cabins. This design also provides for a 25% larger owner?s berth than the 3-cabin model and a massive cockpit locker for storage.
The price reflects the owner?s desire for a quick sale ? their planned Caribbean cruising trip has been cut short here in Stuart, Florida as the owner needs to return home.
