Notes

Sail Area (reported) above = Main + 140% Genoa
A Mark II version was introduced (1982) that allows direct access to the companionway steps from the cockpit with a slightly different interior layout.
At a later date, this hull design was offered in the US as the LITTLE HARBOR 38, and the BRISTOL 38.8.
