Wooden Classic 38' Sailboat Kettenburg K-38 Hull #5 Recent Hull Refit - $36000


“Nepenthe” is a famous fractional rig west coast racing sloop. She was built in 1949 by the Kettenburg Boat Works in San Diego, CA; and spent most of her life in Marina Del Ray in Los Angeles before being transported to Rhode Island in 2010 for a four year refit. She is an exciting boat to sail with beautiful classic lines. This boat gets tons of attention both on the water and in a slip. I am sad to have to take leave of her as we put a lot of time energy love and money into saving her. Yet, we don’t have the resources to keep her in the condition she is used to. She needs an owner who can complete the cosmetic restoration and sail her to many more victories. All offers considered. $36,000.
