Current Price: US $89,500

Hull Material: Fiberglass

This 1996 Ericson 380 by Pacific Seacraft is very nice. She has many upgrades and will serve you well for many years to come!

The 380 is a performance cruiser with good balance that allows it to steer itself for long periods of time. The boat will point to within 40 degrees of the wind with a 135 percent genoa (2020) and was built to be sea kindly in windy conditions (see video). The Ericson 380 has a PHRF rating of 112.

The keel is the bulb version drawing 5’5″ inches. The rudder is a balanced spade and the bow has a fine entry with some flare to keep the decks dry and the forefoot from pounding. The 380 is easily recognizable, due to its moderate overhangs, low freeboard, and subtle cabin trunk.

This classic beauty is well worth taking the time for a close look!

The interior has been impeccably maintained and preserved with new Interior Cushions in main salon and forward berth and the teak and holly cabin sole refinished in 2019. The high quality in a Pacific Seacraft build is evident in the details – especially the handsome varnished teak interior.

As you descend into the cabin the galley is immediately to the left. Aft of the galley is the aft stateroom with a very comfortable mattress  6′ 6″ x 5′ 9″ dimensions, roughly the size of a queen).

Salon table area on port and settee on starboard both boasting 6′ 6″ length dimensions making good pilot berths when underway. The aft facing nav-station is on the aft end of the starboard side settee.

There are 11 Lewmar opening ports w/ screens all new in 2009. 4 additional Lewmar fixed ports help provide additional light. 3 Lewmar hatches in the overhead allow plenty of ventilation and have been upgraded with Oceanair shade/screens that slide across with a click (forward hatch new 2013).
The galley features a large 12V refrigerator freezer, force 10 2 burner stove with oven, and hot and cold pressurized water.

And finally, to the immediate starboard coming down the companionway is the head which is spacious and has a large separate enclosed shower.
