It's a solid "meh" in person. Went to look at it with a friend who was in the market. All the port lights have been sealed shut along with other odd DIwhY things. I found myself scratching my head a lot as I looked at it. Could probably knock them down even more on price.
I'm not surprised. Some experienced bluewater sailors don't allow any portlights or hatches to be opened, ever. This was the case on my ocean crossings. Even in the Trades. Also, there was always a tall insert in the companionway that needed to be stepped over. Skipper had sailed his C&C34 around the world, solo (including Cape Horn the wrong way) so he knew what he was doing.
The blurb in the ad says that the owner took this E38 on a round trip from Texas to the Galapagos. My hat is off to him.
