The Ericson 38-200 is one of those vessels that will always turn up in far flung, not easily reached, cruising grounds. They enjoy a reputation for toughness and yet have an uncanny turn of speed, especially for a cruising boat designed for the 80's. None of these attributes come as a surprise to their owners, who tend to cherish these fine boats for many years and infrequently come on the market.
This particular one, ARETE, encountered the typical Ericson owner, full of enthusiasm and knowledge, not to only keep her in excellent shape, but progressively go through her older systems and refit them as needed, while simultaneously refreshing the interior.
ARETE, is the winged keel version of this boat, which allows her to get into most areas boats of her size would struggle to do. Additionally, with the unique internal tri axial grid structure these boats where built with, make this boat stiff enough to carry ample canvas and withstand a beating when sailing in tough weather.
ARETE is currently afloat for a short while longer, prior to being hauled for winter storage. Kindly contact the broker for further information and to schedule a viewing.

The Ericson 38-200 has a typical layout for this generation of yachts, but has some subtle changes over the earlier 38.
Forward one will find a spacious double V berth, with it's own privacy door and is arranged with a surprising amount of storage on both sides of the cabin and in central drawers beneath the berth.
There is another private cabin in the port quarter, with slightly less volume but a slightly wider double bunk. Midships, one will find a spacious salon with U shaped seating to port and fore/aft seating to s'brd, both of which may be used as bunks. 6 persons may easily be accommodated for short periods.
The galley lies to port, just forward of the companion way. This has more than adequate work top space, double drain sink, gas stove with oven and a deep ice box type refrigerator.
Opposite the galley, to st'brd is the navigation space, with a good sized chart table, switches and circuit breakers which are easily reached, and sufficient storage in the way of drawers and pigeon holes for charts.
Aft of the chart table, one will find the head, with a separate enclosed shower. Of note, the head is electrically operated and is fresh water supplied from the more than adequate tankage.
Overall, the interior shows ample volume and lends itself for comfortable lounging when moored and on passage. The ample natural light and air, entering through the numerous opening hatches and portlights will easily keep at bay any feeling of being cooped up in a boat.
It is also refreshing to see attention being paid to the natural teak finish inside which shows little wear for it's age.

Growing up in Malta, Alex was surrounded by the Mediterranean maritime industry. He built his first model boat at the age of 11 and hasn’t stopped playing with boats since. In no time, Alex learned to sail and had his offshore captain’s license by age 17 and his Ocean Master ticket by his mid 20's. Besides learning and developing skills as a seaman, he was also playing with engines and machinery of all types, including building and racing rally cars and old motorcycles.
With a college background in physics, applied and pure mathematics, he studied naval architecture, which culminated in being employed at Sergio Lupoli Yacht Design in Naples for 5 years, this included design and building schedules of small custom IRC racing sailboats. While this led to work on a wide variety of projects and boats, restlessness eventually led back to sea, initially as mate on an ocean-going tug, master on a research dive vessel, running a Swan for the Japanese delegation at a G7 summit, several transatlantic passages, as well as racing yachts in the Middle Sea Race and elsewhere in the Mediterranean.
More recently he was captain/engineer onboard a 30m classic motor yacht for 13 years, with an approximate 5000Nm yearly cruising schedule. Besides being responsible for the guests & crew, Alex scheduled and oversaw the extensive refit and maintenance programs required for an old classic yacht, with all the numerous little bits that go with keeping such a vessel afloat and running.
In addition to his native languages of Maltese, English, and Italian, Alex is conversant in Spanish, French, and Arabic. He and his wife sailed from Malta to the US in their 33-foot gaff cutter. They now reside in Portsmouth, and in their free time explore the US countryside on their dual sport motorcycles. He is a life member of the Royal Malta Yacht Club and past president of the Rhode Island Soaring Club, where he is a prominent participant in national model sailplane contests.
Alex is now on the team at Brewer Yacht Sales, and keen to utilize his decades of experience on behalf of clients, wishing to experience the fun and pleasure of yacht ownership.
