2011 Rodman 38 Yacht

Perfectly optimised

The R38 is the most compact boat in the Rodman Yacht range and the most spacious in its class.

It combines a perfect sailing performance with a range of superb features more typical of longer hulled boats. It is the ideal choice for a safe, comfortable and enjoyable sail.

A novelty is the inclusion of the Volvo Penta IPS technology, which ensures lower fuel consumption, greater range, less vibration and noise and greater comfort, better features, and greater manoeuvrability.
