“Juggernaut” is lightly used and ready to go! Her current owner’s plans have changed since he spent a lot of money re-coring and repainting the decks and cockpit with Awlgrip in 2016.
The Aerodyne 38 was designed as a fast easy-to-sail “cruiser / racer” with comfortable accommodations. Cockpit size and interior space are carefully balanced to achieve this dual role. Good performance was high on the priority list. The result is an attractive, easily handled, contemporary “club racer” with plenty of space on deck and a lot of volume down below. This type of hull-form combines very good reserve stability with low wetted surface – a boat that sails well across the wind range. She sails at low heel angles, which improves both comfort and the efficiency of the rig and foils. On the performance side the design is influenced by developments in both Open Class BOC/Vendee Globe types and fast round-the-buoys designs, not handicapped by restrictive “rating” rules. The Aerodyne 38 also benefits from the designer’s experience with successful long-distance custom cruising yachts.
