PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WHEN VIEWED ON A MOBILE DEVICE THE LISTING SHOWN ON YACHTWORLD IS VERY ABBREVIATED. VISIT OUR WEBSITE TO SEE THE FULL LISTING SPECIFICATIONS.

Rubicon is loaded with gear and unique upgrades and options!  The boat has been customized on many levels, to make life on board more convenient and cruising friendly.  The current owners have just returned from winter in the Bahamas and had a blast!

The interior of the Moorings 38 is the fabulous Beneteau ‘art nouveau’ styling of the late 1980’s to early 1990’s, with rounded cabinets and soft edges juxtaposed with simple straight lines. The M38 is unusual for a 38 foot boat in that it has 2 (composting) heads, so is ideal for a family or 2 couples.  Designed originally as a racer-cruiser, the M38 performs well in both light air and heavy air conditions.
