The Swarbrick Spacesailer 38 is recognised as a well behaved and seaworthy vessel. At home cruising, racing around the cans or serious off-shore racing. The Australian Navy purchased 7 in early 1980 which were raced in Sydney-Hobart (1985 - 2001) and 2 of which the Navy retains as sail training vessels

Accommodation comprises of 3 separate double cabins together with a dinette double and single in the salon. The SpaceSailor lives up to its name with an amazing amount of storage for a boat of this size.

Swarbrick 38s are recognised as versatile yachts and this yacht boasts a bag of racing trophies whilst having spent the last two years short-handed (2) cruising the East Coast. She has an extensive sail wardrobe, in excellent condition, providing a sail plan suitable for conditions ranging from light wind racing on the harbour to 40 knots offshore. The wardrobe comprises a Main with 3 reefing points, Number 1,3 and 4 (Yankee cut) furling headsails. Additionally there is a storm jib run on a separate removable baby stay and fractional symmetrical spinnaker with pole. A new boom-bag with lazy jacks was fitted in 2020.

For cruising-comfort a (new in 2019) dodger, Bimini and infill, all integrated with the Targa, provide (optional) full coverage of the cockpit. The spatious cockpit will accommodate your crew or guests in comfort and comes with removable small or a large tables to accommodate your Sundowner party. This yacht has a practical 'sugar-scoop' at the stern, facilitating easy access from a tender, as well as providing a wonderful swimming / fishing platform. The cockpit and deck are illuminated by bright LED lights.
