Yachting Brokers are pleased to offer for sale a Sigma 38. The Sigma 38 needs little introduction and still finds favour with many racing and cruising fleets. The Sigma 38 was born in 1985 when the Royal Ocean Racing Club and the Royal Thames Yacht Club agreed to sponsor a new one design that would stand up to tough offshore conditions. The design chosen was from David Thomas who had already designed the successful Sigma 33. Built by Marine Projects in Plymouth the Sigma 38 became extremely popular. A total of 125 yachts were built, the last Sigma 38 in 1993. This example is lying ashore In Falmouth. She has a good sail wardrobe and inventory and is ready for her next adventure.
