Broker comments

"Seeking the perfect compromise between racer and cruiser can be an expensive and time-consuming process...but I believe the performance, lay-out and quality of build of the Prima 38 will give her what it takes. In cruising mode the saloon offers all the comfort you would expect and decent sea berths make a change offshore. The galley has more space than you would expect and can happily cater for a full crew." - Matthew Sheahan, Yachting Monthly.
