Aspen 38

June 2014 New Boats Notebook

We tracked down the inside scoop on what boatbuilders are up to next.

Aspen 38

The Aspen 38 is only 38 feet long and yet she’s got three staterooms—including both king- and queen-size berths—and two heads. (Pretty sweet, huh?) But the 38 isn’t just notable for spacious decks. She’ll be able to cruise along on her high-speed asymmetrical hulls near 17 knots, speeds at which it is hoped a future owner can take her from San Francisco Bay to the Channel Islands in about two days, according to Aspen’s Nick Graf. Notably, the boat will only have a single 380-horsepower engine, situated in her larger, starboard hull. An interesting build thanks to her proa-type design, I’m looking forward to keeping up with her.
