Notes

The CAPE FEAR 38 was available in three different versions: Standard, Cruising, Regatta, though variations in features and dimensions were not consistent to one specific version. This model was originally promoted with 'a la carte' pricing model with a long list of configurations and options. (A keel failure in 2008 that resulted in a mans death raised charges about the construction standards for this model. We have no specific knowledge about the merits of this case but it has been written about extensively elsewhere.)
