Hooper 38 - SOLD


The original owner was a NZ craftsman boat builder who built ‘Lucina’ for his three successful Pacific ocean cruises.

Strongly constructed of glass over triple diagonal NZ Kauri ‘Lucina’ has stood the test of time with an excellent pre purchase survey for current owner in 2008 plus a recent 2013 out of water update report.

Designed as a strong performance cruiser ‘Lucina’ has a practical and purposeful cruising interior with ambiance only found in timber yachts.

The cruising inventory is extensive and complete and ready for immediate cruising.

In 1994 a new 40 HP diesel was fitted and has a full maintenance history.

The current owner initially inspected the crop of production GRP yachts available but found ‘Lucina’ the ideal short handed cruising yacht.

Proven immensely strong, easy to maintain with the glass over strip plank build, plus practical cruising interior.
