The Seaquest Prima 38 is designed for serious racing that also gets high marks for comfort. It's easier to sail, faster and a lot more stylish than many other boats. The Seaquest Prima 38 brings together recent design advances in a racer-cruiser package that is aimed at the performance end of the market and yet still able to attract the family that wants to do some fast paced cruising. She has a superbly balanced rig and hull making it extremely fast, stable and easy to helm. " The Prima 38 represents exceptional value with high quality in every aspect of it's construction" writes Peter Bentley from Yachts and Yachting, "It's the balance, proportion and most importantly of all, the attention to detail that sets those that are simply 'right' from the also rans. The Prima is very definately 'right'."
