About this Brenta B38

Extensively upgraded and updated example of the blisteringly fast and easy-to-sail Luca Brenta designed B38 daysailor. Huge spec and 100% ready to go.


Originating from the legendary Milan based Luca Brenta Yacht Design House, the US-flagged SCHEGGIA was launched in 2005 and is hull No.9 of this popular performance daysailer line.

The Brenta B38 was designed to provide easily handled and stylish boat with minimum maintenance and maximum performance.

SCHEGGIA has been extensively updated by her current owner and wintered ashore under cover each year with full annual maintenance as required. Her specification highlights include:

• Composite carbon fibre white coloured hull.

• Teak decks with white caulking – replaced 2016

• Harken electric winches x2.

• Carbon Hall mast.

Ideal for local club racing (Rating – PHRF 42.0), SCHEGGIA is also CE-certified, so can be used on either side of the Atlantic. Now offered as her owner has bought larger, SCHEGGIA is seriously for sale and well-priced to attract a quick and simple sale.
