1988 Carver 38 Santego

Stockton, California

$59,900

"Vino" is an immaculate example of this outstanding express bridge design from Carver! Her condition is a result of her numerous years of residing in the fresh waters of the California Delta and being stored under cover. She passed a USCG Aux Vessel Safety Check on 2/19/23.

She boasts a new full cockpit enclosure, which was added to her existing full flybridge enclosure, port side custom stairs to flybridge, chrome grab rail for easier boarding as well as partial new exterior carpeting and all new interior carpeting.

She is a must see for those seeking an excellently priced upper 30's foot cruiser that is ideal for great weekends, taking the family or parties for entertaining or a possible live aboard. 

She is the "original" 38 Santego design and not the later rebadged 34 that became the 380!
