2005 Rodman 38 - £109,950 (Tax Paid)

The Rodman 38 is an attractive flybridge cruiser built by a company that is known for building strong, high quality craft for both leisure and military use. This is a particularly spacious craft with a particularly spacious saloon, two heads/shower compartments and a roomy flybridge, with both seating and sunbathing space.

This is a very clean example of her type, powered by twin Volvo D6-310 horsepower shaft drive diesel engines that can easily push her along at cruising speeds of 22 knots. The comprehensive inventory includes heating, bow thruster, autopilot and much more.

Owner's Comments

We bought "Due South" in June 2016 where she was lying at Brighton, and moved her to Poole. We chose her over her competition as her accommodation is superb. We were also well aware of the fine reputation Rodman boats enjoy, for their standard of build and handling.

"Due South" has taken us along the South Coast from Brighton to Brixham and across the channel on several occasions to Cherbourg, the Channel Islands and Brittany. She is wonderfully comfortable and has a re-assuring "feel" to her when out at sea.

We have a full printed service history for "Due South" in our ownership, we will be more than happy to hand this over to her next owners.
