DELIVERY INFORMATION

Bagheera is a Beneteau First 38' built in France in 1985

that we have owned since new. Since picking her up in France we have logged over 117,000 nautical miles and visited 114 countries, including a circumnavigation with our three young sons. Oversized rigging, a collision bulkhead forward and additional lockers were the only structural modifications made when new. Equipment was always upgraded when replacement was necessary. With a tall masthead rig and 7’2” draft she is a high performance, moderate displacement and easily steered craft in which we have rarely averaged less than 150 n. miles in 24 hours when offshore.

To comfortably cruise as a couple Bagheera has been modified to be easy to handle and a secure home. In-boom mainsail furling as well as genoa furling allows one person to hoist, reef and stow sails from the safety of the cockpit. A large autopilot and a Hydrovane wind vane, a central electric winch to which all halyards and sheets can be led and an electric anchor windlass reduce our work load; a dodger and full cockpit enclosure protect from the cold while extra hatches and fans over every berth give a good airflow in the tropics; a reliable refrigerator and freezer, 3-burner stove and oven, watermaker, ample storage lockers, extensive book shelves and sea berths in the main cabin give comfortable living below. Our ability to install and maintain nearly all the electrical, electronic and mechanical systems has made her very reliable along with reducing the cruising budget.

Bagheera continues to be enjoyed by all members of the Copeland family. Summer plans are to head north to Alaska.
