Admiral 38 Catamaran Review Courtesy of Sail Magazine Peter Nielsen | January 16, 2008

An interview with Owners: Shhhh, donââ?¬â?¢t tell Famous Potatoes sheââ?¬â?¢s being included in an article about starter cats. She thinks sheââ?¬â?¢s at least 42 feet long, and sheââ?¬â?¢s about convinced me of it too. The most impressive thing about this boat is her incredibly spacious feel. Owners of larger cats have come aboard and exclaimed, ââ?¬Å?Wow, you have so much room! What a beautiful boat!ââ?¬ï¿½ I fell in love with her lines when I first saw her at the 2005 Miami Boat Show. She looks sleek and fast, and indeed she is. On passages I love to see another sailboat ahead of us, especially if itââ?¬â?¢s a larger cat. I like to sail past and pretend Iââ?¬â?¢m reading a book. She is capable, too. I sailed her from South Africa to Florida with 25-to-37-knot winds and some 20-foot waves for the first three days. We reached top speeds near 20 knots while surfing down them. The autopilot and boat both handled it with ease, but I admit that on two occasions I had to grab my wineglass as it slid across the dinner table. The roomy, open galley-up is brilliantly laid out, a pleasure to cook in, and easy to clean. We entertained a lot and once had 26 fellow cruisers partying aboard. We have the ownerââ?¬â?¢s version, and our bed is huge; the fore/aft layout means thereââ?¬â?¢s no crawling over one another during the night. The 2-foot, 9-inch draft put the Admiral on our ââ?¬Å?top threeââ?¬ï¿½ list immediately. In the clear waters of the Bahamas and the Caribbean I can sail right through reefs that other cats (to say nothing of monohulls) fear. We love finding a secluded sandy beach and anchoring in 4 feet of water; then taking a stern anchor ashore so we can step off the sugar scoop and walk into our private beach paradise. What more could you want from a 42-footââ?¬â??whoops, I mean a 38-footââ?¬â??cat? She looks lovely, feels good, and sails beautifully. We love this boat!
