Giles 38

Laurent Giles designed the Giles 38 in 1971 as a traditional cruising yacht, with elegant, sweeping lines, and a long keel with cutaway forefoot and transom-hung rudder. She is moderately, but not excessively heavy, and has a sail area to match.

The design was altered slightly by adding a short reverse counter stern, to become the Laurent Giles Bowman 40, which was built by Bowman Yachts from around 1972 to 1986, before the newer Chuck Paine designed version of the Bowman 40 came into being.

Giles 38s were built by a number of builders, including Moodys, Rossiters and others. This yacht was fitted out by her owner, an engineer, over a six year period, on mouldings to Lloyds 100A1 classification from Blondecell. The keel has encapsulated lead ballast.
