The Island Trader 38' Ketch is a classic cruiser with sweeping traditional sheer, bowsprit and clipper bow. It is a conservative, strong, long keel cruiser with 4'6" shoal draft, allowing it to go almost anywhere. Its interior is warmly finished with quality varnished teak joinery and is very comfortable. Nicely equipped, it's a lot of boat for the money!
