Salona 38 Yacht

The new Salona 38 is a result of combined innovation, the use of latest technology and high tech materials, as well as our experience gained throughout creation of all our models, from 34 to 60ft. Every Salona is a result of teamwork of external and internal designers among which we are proud to mention J&J Salona 38 designers, Jason Ker (keel optimization), many Olympic and professional sailors, interior designers, suppliers and most importantly existing cruising or racing Salona customers.

All these people have one simple goal - to design and build globally competitive fast sailing yachts that can win any regatta but at the same time have uncompromised comfort and safety while cruising. Apart from all the key features that have to be satisfied for each yacht under the Salona name, the new Salona 38 has extremely hard task – to beat our best-selling model, Salona 37 (European and US Yacht of the year).

Construction

As on all our models the big stainless steel frame takes loads from the keel and shrouds and spreads them securely to a wide area of the hull. On the new Salona 38 we have gone step further in achieving maximum stiffness and durability of the boat by adding layers of carbon fibre on carefully analyzed areas of hull inner liner to obtain equilibrium of stainless steel structure and inner liner attached to it.

Performance

In order to optimize performance, Jason Ker, America’s Cup designer, has designed and optimized special performance keel with lower center of gravity and he has significantly improved ballast to weight ratio and hydrodynamics of the keel with the use of the latest computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program. Salona 38 prototype was tested by Dean Barker, Emirates Team New Zealand America’s Cup skipper.

 

"On the way to Portugal to AC45 World Series I stopped in Split, Croatia for the launch of the new Salona 38 which is a new model for the Salona boats range. Salona produce a performance cruiser range with some beautifully built yachts. The 38 was very nice to steer, very well balanced and comfortable." - Dean Barker
