Cabo Rico’s Classic Cutter
Crealock’s CR38 proves quality is enduring—as is hefty price tag.
Still going strong after more than 35 years, the Bill Crealock-designed Cabo Rico 38 is much admired for its strength, seakeeping ability, and teak joinery work. While the original beauty was out of reach of the average cruiser, the recession has put enough of a dent in this market that some attractively priced boats are popping up now and then. With the molds for this popular boat in limbo, it could well be that the only Cabo 38s we’ll see in the future are those that are out sailing today, and this shouldn’t hurt their value.
