Designed by Sparkman & Stephens, an iconic American naval architecture firm since 1929. Built by Lyman-Morse, a revered and distinguished American boatbuilder. The Rambler 38 is a head-turner in the harbor. Refined hull lines and sophisticated design blend beautifully to produce a center console yacht that is stunning, fast, intuitive to use, and ready to handle the open seas with ease.

“Our goal was to develop a design that is new and different, but distinctly American. It had to be powerful and elegant, but also functional and relevant in the market. Our aft deck options leap ahead of the competition with wholly customizable solutions to suit clients’ needs and enhance their time on the water,” said Brendan Abbott, Chief Designer for Sparkman & Stephens and President of Rambler Yacht Co.

Down below, accommodations are complete with full galley, separate head including shower, and queen-sized berth. On deck, Rambler’s innovative track installation system is ready for different styles of boating with the ability to change the aft deck layout from one activity to the next. Within minutes, the Rambler 38 can transform from the ultimate weekend warrior fishing center console into a dinette layout for a cocktail cruise with family and friends.

Rambler’s design and build teams have defined a new and advanced aluminum construction process. This proprietary ExactForm technology is not only sustainable, with 85% recycled material used during build, but also eliminates finish concerns of yesteryear. ExactForm allows for a streamlined build, beautiful worry-free finish options, unmatched sustainability and excellent value retention. “We have had a great partnership with S&S throughout our 40 years in business. We are excited to be teamed up again on this new product line. Working on developing ExactForm with Rambler Yacht Co. fits into our core values and strengths as a company expert in precision and efficient build-outs,” said Drew Lyman, President of Lyman-Morse. “This project is right in our wheelhouse.”

With integrated controls and electronic systems, the Rambler 38’s interface is intuitive, and the user is in control. Twin multi-touch 22″ widescreen displays are standard, providing straightforward access to all features on the Rambler 38. Chartplotting, entertainment, lighting, engine gauges, tank monitoring, and all of your chosen options are viewed and controlled through a fully integrated interface. Underway, the 38-footer scoots with top speeds of 45+ MPH with standard twin Mercury 350 outboards and 60+ MPH with optional quad Mercury 350 outboards.
