This new Cruisers Yachts 38 Grand Luxury Sport (GLS) is versatile enough for all types of near-shore day use and an excellent size for cruising on large lakes, such as Lake Washington. The easy-to-handle vessel sleeps four and can be powered by either Volvo or Mercury twin stern-drive inboards, which are available in 380- and 430-hp models. There is also an option to equip the boat with outboards, depending on customer needs. The top speed for the 380-hp motors is rated at 47 mph.

The first feature to be noticed on the inboard Cruiser 38 is the spacious, convertible swim platform location at the stern. To add even more recreational fun, the beach doors can be folded flat on the water’s surface or hydraulically submerged for easier swimmer access. The aft facing bench backrest can also swivel to either face the cockpit or the beach door.

The open-concept, self-draining cockpit has a plenty of seating options, including facing bench seats around a convertible table in the bow lounge (accessible through the walk-through windshield) and two L-shaped dinettes located amidship around a teak dinette table. The bow lounge is also wired with Rockford Fosgate speakers to keep the party going into the evening.

A compact galley on the port side includes a fiberglass inlay sink, a refrigerator, a raised wet bar, bottle storage, and space for an optional grill and a 28” TV. Two swivel bar stools are located forward of the galley so guests can still converse with the cook. To starboard, the helm seat includes a bolster, a host of premium Simrad electronics, power-assisted steering, and joystick engine controls. Other helm amenities include a conductive phone charging pad, storage space under the seat, and an optional ice maker. Sitting atop the boat deck is a hardtop sunshade with an opening sunroof for the days when you want to soak it up, along with an optional foredeck and aft deck shade for the opposite.

The lower salon, lined with ebony oak walls and Amtico flooring, has a U-shaped dinette area and table for gatherings in inclement weather. The dinette can also be converted into guest berth. Down below as well, the salon galley features a microwave, a refrigerator, and an optional TV. A starboard window and an opening porthole above the lower salon help flood the climate-controlled, enclosed space with natural light. The head belowdecks includes a sink, a toilet, mirrors, and a standing shower. Aft of the lower salon is the stateroom, with space for a custom-sized berth, personal reading lights, shelf storage, and an optional TV.

To top it all off, the 38 GLS is available in a stylish grey-and-black gelcoat as part of the South Beach Edition package from Silver Seas Yachts.
