Cascade 36/38, built in Portland, OR, by Yacht Constructor’s Inc. The interior was finished to high degree by the buyer in the Cascade yard. A factory-made hard dodger and sugar scoop were added, making this 36 foot design a 38 foot overall.

The original owner took ownership of her in the Cascade yard in 1975. The second owner bought the boat in OR, took her to the Puget Sound in WA and did little with the boat, sitting at the dock for a few years. Third and current owners wanted a strong boat for heading to Mexico and knew the Cascade hisotry of fast, strong, circumnavigation capable boats so they bought her in 2018, put her in the yard, painted the bottom, changed all through hulls, re-rigged with dyneema, added new battery pack, cleaned her and set sail for Mexico 2 months after purchase, stopping in Ensenada to painted the hull.

Currently laying in La Paz, Mexico, known as the Gateway to the Sea of Cortez, home to the world’s best cruising and fishing grounds, once described by the famous explorer Jacques Cousteau as the world’s largest natural aquarium. Dozens of beautiful anchorages with white sand beaches, crystal clear warm waters all await you.
