2016 Hughes 38

This BEAUTIFUL 2016 Hughes 38 was recently launched in 2016. The Hughes 38 was designed for the Cruising Club of America Rule by Sparks & Stephens (design #1903) The hull was commissioned and built in 1990, however, the boat was completed and launched in 2016. She has various options that can easily be modified easily to suit your needs. Currently, she is equipped with a tiller, however, can be easily modified to a wheel. As there currently is no windlass, the owners are in the process of purchasing and setting her up a with a windlass. She has classic lines with modern furnishings! If you’re looking for a nearly new boat at a fraction of the price look no further! We have a recent survey available upon request.
