Boat Description

DUNDIGGIN is a well respected and regionally coveted Jarvis Newman design. She has the pedigree that come with yachts that have been designed by a competent and proven designer and built by a yard that has a history of high quality work. Add to this an owner that is a marine professional that has the knowledge and resources to maintain the yacht to a high level and you have a great opportunity. This yacht is special.

DUNDIGGIN has a handsome Herreshoff-style interior with white bulkheads and varnished mahogany cabinetry and trim, with a varnished teak and holly sole. Boarding the yacht from the transom you enter a large open cockpit with teak sole, fixed bench locker and a fixed and collapsible work surfaces on the aft facing superstructure bulkhead.

The foredeck is accessible by the wide weather decks port and starboard that feature a varnished teak toerail and a varnished teak handrail that is attached to the outboard bulkhead of the superstructure port and starboard and runs the full length of the cabin for safe passage forward and aft on the weather decks. The Fore deck is clean and uncluttered and offers excellent space to handle lines, mooring or anchoring while offering a stainless steel bow rail that wraps around to midship for added protection.

Back in the cockpit the flybridge is accessible by a stainless steel ladder with split pitch for added safety going up or coming down. Climbing the access ladder, you enter the sundeck with teak decks that is surrounded by a stainless steel hand rail. Moving forward on the flybridge is the upper pilot station with teak decks, full soft enclosure, protected guest bench seating/lounging, captain’s seat, collapsible/removable varnished teak table and a full suite of electronics and helm station.

The salon is accessed through the large outward swinging door in the cockpit. Moving forward to port is a large dining table with a drop leaf and “L” shaped fixed seating aft and along the port bulkhead. To starboard just forward of the entry door is a corner wet-bar with stainless steel sink, front loading refrigerator and bottle cabinet accessed through counter top. Above the wet-bar is a flat screen TV monitor facing forward. Moving forward to starboard is a double settee that expands into a double bunk that runs forward and aft along the starboard bulkhead. Moving forward on the starboard side is the pilot’s station with retractable seat, mahogany wheel, custom electric panel, engine and genset controls, and full suite of electronics. Opposite to port is a port facing navigation station with storage below work surface and with a lower locker. Forward of the navigation station is a credenza with drawer storage and back up electronics.

Moving forward down (4) steps is the galley that features (3) burner electric range with oven, storage above and below work surfaces, tiled surface around stainless steel single basin sink, and custom lighting to port. Full sized Norcold upper and lower fridge/freezer and GE large microwave is located starboard at the base of the steps. Opposite forward of the fridge is a large hanging locker.

To starboard of the galley is the head that featuresVacuflush head, Tankwatch III holding tank monitoring system, tiled counters, stainless steel single basin, ample storage and separate shower stall.

The forward master cabin is accessed through the door forward of the companionway steps that enter the galley. The cabin features a V-berth with drawer storage below the bunk, shelving both port and starboard outboard above the bunks, singe settee, air-conditioning vent and controls and large hanging locker behind the inward opening cabin door to port.

DUNDIGGIN was purchased by current owner, a professional in the marine industry, in 2001. When purchased she was located in the Great Lakes where she had been stored indoors and unused for seven years. Knowing the value of a fresh water boat and the light use that this Jarvis Newman 38 had seen, the current owner purchased her and brought her to New England.

In 2009 DUNDIGGIN was repowered with a larger single 450 hp Caterpillar fresh water cooled marine diesel engine. Along with the repower the current owner has maintained the yacht to an exacting standard including the following upgrades/maintenance:

Awlgripped hull, deck and superstructure - 2008
Garmin HD 15" radar and plotter – 2013
3500 Watt inverter charger – 2013
(4) AGM batteries – 2014
Additional highlights:

(2) zone air conditioning
Vetus thruster 8 kw Onan generator
Simrad AP20 autopilot
Full flybridge enclosure
Ideal windlass.
This vessel has a large and clean engine room and has a spacious comfortable layout for the live-aboard or cruising couple. She accommodates four occasionally between the v-berth stateroom, and double in the main salon. The enclosed head includes a separate stall shower and fresh water Vacuflush head. A U-shaped galley is down but open to the salon. The expansive fly-bridge and spacious aft cockpit - "back porch" and ideal for socializing. This is a timeless yacht that has been cared for and treated well. Proven hull built by a well-respected yard and owned by a yachtsman that is also a professional in the marine industry…. this yacht will not disappoint.
