A Nauticat 38 motor sailor design by S&S and built in Finland. You don't really need to say much more, the design is great and the build quality excellent.
She has a ketch rig for ease of sail handling, has two helm stations (inside and out) and a classic teak interior; an ideal combination for cruising in comfort and safety in higher latitudes.
