Seller's Description

S/V Smac is a stunning example of this era of Dufour yachts. She has been lovingly cared for throughout the years and spent her first 15 years sailing freshwater lakes up north. She has since made her way south and is ready to take you on a high-performance adventure with all the creature comforts and conveniences of a traditional cruiser.

At 38 feet, she has three cabins, two aft and a v-berth (master stateroom) forward. The amount of quality living space and storage space is almost impossible to find in a performance cruiser of this size, and her past sailors have kept her interior in like-new condition. To preview this for yourself, please check out her immersive tour online here: https://www.asteroom.com/pviewerhideleadgen=1&token=UYbcCF5vHkOFRuCE6OojqA

Her latest upgrades include:

  • 2000w Renogy Invertor Charger (not installed)

  • New Renogy Rover Solar Controller (installed)

  • Renogy One Core (installed)

  • Renogy 60amp MPPT/DC to DC charger (not installed)

  • Bodega 76 quart chest fridge/freezer

Don’t let this one pass you by! She is turnkey, priced competitively, and is at the moment the ONLY Dufour 38 classic on the market in the USA. Though Canada registered, the paperwork is already in process for USA Documentation, so this will change soon.

Calculations

Hull Speed
9.4 kn
Classic: 7.63 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

9.41 knots
Classic formula: 7.63 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
24.9
>20: high performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
24.88
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
34.2
<40: less stiff, less powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

34.15
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
176.8
100-200: light

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
176.81
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
21.5
20-30: coastal cruiser

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
21.51
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
2.1
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
2.07
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising

Notes

Shallow draft: 4.75’ (disp.: 14432 lbs.)
