At one with the sea


Designed for fun


Designed for performance


Life on board


The Trader 38 Sprint has been designed to provide an on water experience that combines exhilaration and comfort. Combining the cruising traditions of Trader with the performance and handling of Zeus, Sprint is a new concept in fast yachting.

Central to the idea of being at one with the sea is the single level main deck in which the cockpit and saloon are on the same level and can be enjoyed as one space by opening the innovative sliding and bi-fold doors. Extensive glass and a large sunroof are used to create the most intimate relation between the 38 Sprint’s interior and the seascape.

Moving around the deck is exceptionally easy for a boat of this size. Wide and protected side decks provide unrivalled safety for kids and adults alike. Dock work is easier too, thanks to oversize mooring gear and four boarding doors in the topsides. A full height door to the side deck by the helm helps the skipper too – complementing the versatility of the Zeus manoeuvring system perfectly.


The one level main deck is the ideal platform for enjoying time afloat. The cockpit features seating and tables. With the galley adjacent to both inside and outside dining areas, catering is easy for two or a large party. A door closes off the transom platform from the cockpit, making this area very safe for everyone.

Coupled to the standard anchoring system and the ZEUS Station Keeping mode which allows the boat to maintain a stationary position and heading, the Trader 38 Sprint is an ideal mother ship for water sports events, including fishing – a role enhanced by the low maintenance Flexiteek decking and the versatile boarding arrangements on both hull sides and the transom. She is also perfectly suited to function as a viewing platform for on water events without all the jostling and manoeuvring to stay in one position that is par for the course at popular functions.


38 Sprint’s hull is the work of world renowned designer Tony Castro, who worked closely with the naval architects of propulsion manufacturer CMD to optimize the integration of the Zeus pods and their tunnels into the design.

The structure has been fully engineered by High Modulus for high performance and robust sea-keeping, utilizing hi-tech resin infusion to ensure strength and light weight. The use of these sophisticated composites have allowed many design innovations, including the one piece windshield and slender mullions in the deck house to produce exceptional views out – a great bonus for high speed cruising.

Underway, the helmsman benefits from the comfort of a fully adjustable helm seat and ergonomic console. On the port side, a viewing seat folds out of the sofa so passengers can enjoy the passing views and performance as well.


Despite her smaller size, the 38 Sprint has been designed with the Trader ‘Home from Home’ ethos to the fore. Starting from the proposition that space, practicality and domestic fittings are prerequisites to comfort on board; the result is boats that are really suitable for extended stays.
On the interior, two generous cabins and full head (en suite to the master) are matched by a spacious main deck arrangement with domestic appliances and furniture. Fully equipped with a generous specification including generator, galley equipment, an AV entertainment system and even a washer dryer, the 38 Sprint is built to go cruising.

The modern interior styling is in keeping with her performance character and the bright interior spaces. Two types of bamboo are utilized in the joinery, complemented by many new luxurious materials and LED lighting, to create a unique atmosphere on board.


The Trader 38 Sprint’s purposeful lines can be personalized with any of four optional solid hull colours. Specially selected for the boat each complements her unique character on the water.
Suggested options are available to tailor each boat to her owners’ cruising requirements and cruising. On the outside, an extended bathing platform, and passarelle (with tender lift) are available to enhance the experience of being on the water in warmer climates. Full air-conditioning is offered for comfort on board and a full canvas cockpit enclosure is also available for less clement conditions.

However specified, every Trader 38 Sprint is a craft of exceptional style and character, matched to exhilarating on-water abilities.
