About this Sigma 38

English

Esprit has been a marvellous family cruising yacht, which has been owned by the same family since 2010. She has always provided safe and fast passages around the Irish Sea and Scotland and can be handled easily by two crew. The excitement level can be turned up or down depending on mood, conditions and crew. She has been very lightly club-raced in our ownership.

Esprit has benefitted from a continuous programme of maintenance and upgrade.
