TREMAINE is a Vagabond-built Westwind 38’ Cutter, set up for coastal cruising or blue water adventure. The cockpit has a dodger and bimini with side sun shields. When you enter this boat, the elegant woodwork and white headliner is a real “stand out”. In the bow is a queen-size V-berth master suite with lots of storage. Moving aft, there is the head with shower on the starboard side. Beyond, you enter the spacious main salon with wrap-around seating at a beautiful oval wood table to starboard and a settee to port. Continuing aft, you have the well-equipped galley to port and nav station to starboard. Farther aft to starboard is a large quarter berth with several drawers and a hanging locker. TREMAINE is elegant below and ready to sail on deck!
