Blue Star 38 | 2024 Bruckmann Blue Star 38 Motoryacht



Inspired by the success of the Bluestar 29.9, the 38 is unique in her class. Built using the latest materials and technology, the highly efficient deep-v hull gives a smooth soft ride at any speed in any conditions. The Bluestar 38 is powered by twin Yanmar 315 hp turbo diesels as standard. Greater power options are available up to 440 hp.

The interior of the 38 features an "inclusive" layout offering a seamless flow between the exterior and interior spaces. The design achieves openness and light by eliminating the walls and expanding windows.

Forward is an island double bed with ensuite access to the head and shower. Elegant, highly varnished solid teak joinery throughout the interior visually connects the open spaces of the boat. The large galley is completely open to the helm and the sky above. A large dinette is to starboard which converts to an excellent bunk for two.

A proper helmsman's bench seat opposite an oversized navigation station have an open connection to the galley below. The helm is bright and far more spacious than any other yacht in her class. The open cockpit provides ample storage and the side decks are generous and easily navigated. The Bluestar 38 maximizes comfort and livability by providing wide open spaces and a panoramic view of the water.

 More Information


Thank you for all your work in facilitating the sale of our dad's boat. Jake and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it with the many visits, paperwork, etc. A special mention has to go out to Grant for teaching me how to fold the sails!

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
