2004 True North 38

  • 38 ft
  • Marblehead, MA, US

Yacht price :



The Pearson True North 38 is a unique blend of practicality, performance and beauty. Black Swan is a well-kept representation of this very innovative design. She is equipped with the rare hard back with sliding entry doors and thoughtfully upgraded throughout with a new Garmin electronics suite, bow and stern thrusters, Glendinning electric shore power reels, and new AGM batteries.  She lived in fresh water for the first 10 years of her life and has been in indoor winter storage under the current ownership.
The True North 38 is the perfect couples cruiser: easy to handle and maintain, efficient and quiet underway, and plenty of space for entertaining. Black Swan is in the water and ready for the Fall cruising season.
