Come Together, Comfortably

One of the most popular features of the boat’s open concept interior is the “galley-up” configuration that keeps the cook up in the social center of the boat. The main living space and transom that converts to a “private beach” are on one level and close to the water.  They lead into cabin that’s warm and dry when it’s rough, open and airy when it’s not, and always providing an intimate connection to your surroundings with oversize windows and sliding sun roof.

No matter which interior you choose — the “Voyager” layout with dinette that can be converted into a double bunk, or the “Day Boat” version that features long, sociable bench seats — you can be sure that you’ll have more than enough room for everyone.

Limitless Seating

The True North 38 features modular deck furniture that moves to suit any social occasion.


Adventure Options

There’s no limit to the things you can do and the places you can go with this boat. Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards can be easily carried on optional, purpose-built racks on the roof, and small dinghies can be brought up inside the voluminous cockpit.


Design Makes The Difference

The True North 38 performs exceptionally well in every condition; its unique ability to handle rough weather and stormy sea conditions is one of the many features that sets this boat apart. The sharp, plumb bow slices through the waves instead of pounding on top of them when the seas build. The hull’s balanced displacement and flatter aft sections deliver a rock-solid ride in virtually all weather conditions. And since the hull design is inspired by boats that work all year long in all sorts of conditions, we can almost guarantee you won’t miss a day on the water (or be stranded in port) when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
