This is a performance cruiser that has beautiful lines and was built to last! 

The Ericson 380 is clearly a cruising boat, but her performance is certainly very respectable, with good balance to steer herself for long periods of time. The boat will point to within 35-40 degrees. With a sail area-displacement ratio of slightly over 18 and a displacement-length ratio of about 240, she has enough power for decent performance in light air yet is not so overpowered as to be impossible or dangerous to sail with a short handed crew.

Introduced in 1980, the Ericson 38 was designed by the incomparable Bruce King whose talent for drawing beautiful boats of near perfect proportions ranks him with the likes of Herreshoff, Stevens, Rhodes, and Tripp. 

Don and Gene Kohlmann, two San Francisco sailors, began building Ericson 27s in Southern California in 1964.  By 1971 the company was purchased by an East Coast organization that owned Boston Whaler.  In 1984, Gene Kohlmann purchased the company back and produced the 38, 381 and the 38-200.  He ran the company until Pacific Seacraft bought the molds for the 35 and 38 in 1990, producing the first new boats in 1991. When Pacific Seacraft took over, the entire interior was revamped which gave the “new” 380 a more quality finish down below. 

She would be a superb choice for a discerning yachtsman looking for a passage-making cruiser that has performance, style and excellent equipment.

"Blue Dancer" is a fine example of this great boat and is certainly worthy of your inspection. Call and make an appointment to see her today!
