1992 Beneteau 38S5

Long Beach, United States

$59,000

The Beneteau First 38s5 was introduced in 1989 and continued in production until 1995 after a 120 boat run. The design was a collaboration of designers Jean Berret and Philippe Starck, who designed the interior. Jean Berret, who was responsible for the hull and rig, designed what was to become one of Beneteau’s most successful fractional rigs. The design he achieved created a very fast boat that could be raced competitively and easily handled by a cruising couple. The 38s5 handles responsively in all wind conditions and on every point of sail. The hull of the 38s5 is constructed of solid GRP laminates and features an integrated GRP grid system bonded into the hull used to transfer the rig loads evenly throughout the hull structure. The interior makes extensive use of GRP liners, with pre-cut and fabricated modules. The bulkheads are all bonded 360 degrees into both the hull and deck, which results in a light but extremely rigid structure.
All halyards and sail controls are led aft to the cockpit and concealed under fiberglass panels creating a clean deck layout with grab rails recessed into the cabin top, eliminating trip hazards while working on deck.


The unique interior, designed by Philippe Starck, is a wonderful contrast of mahogany, marble counters and aluminum trim. Spacious and attractive, the two private staterooms/ two head interior provide cruising comfort both at sea and in port.
Sleek and stylish, the Beneteau 38s5 offers the perfect blend of performance, comfort, and style in a manner that is sure to satisfy the racer at heart as well as the practical cruiser.
