The Warrior 38 is a much sought-after blue-water yacht popular with both larger sailing families and long-distance cruisers alike. The particular genius of the design by Bill Dixon and Angus Primrose is to fit 4 double cabins, that's 8 berths without using the saloon, and 2 heads, into a 38-footer without making it feel cramped. They also managed to give her masses of deck space and a large deep cockpit while maintaining handsome exterior lines: all in all quite an achievement.
You might say the Warrior 38 sits mid-way between the much more expensive Halberg-Rassy and the more prosaic Moodys also designed by Dixon at the time. She is a definite must-see for anyone looking for a strong, capable coastal cruiser or planning to head off further afield in a boat this size.
Capercallie was bought new by her previous owner in 1987 and was one of the last of the production run of 49. she was then purchased by her current owner in 2015 and has been well looked after and the immediate impression is of a yacht ready to cast off and go. The original teak deck was removed in the past and the deck re-faired and treadmaster fitted which was then sealed over with resin. This has proved a very durable solution and the boat is to this day 100% drip-free inside.
