The 'Cantieri Alpa' (IT), founded in 1957 building sailing yachts, were considered pioneers of the use of fiberglass. Since 1990 however they are best known for their work building larger motorboats. Introduced in 1973, this Alpa 36/38, made in Italy was constructed of fiberglass. The boat was offered with both sloop and ketch rigs. It is yet another example of Rod Stephen's penchant for the type as a roomy cruising boat.
The boat was fully refurbished inside and out while standing inside of a hangar (8-9 years). The engine was completely overhauled, the exhaust system renewed and the engine room was cleaned and painted as if new. There were 300h spend cleaning and painting underneath the floorboards, lockers and cupboards. Every sink, work tablet, mirror, lamp, floorboards, watertap, panneling,... has been renewed or refurbished.
She's a comfortable sailer with a big and spacious central cockpit, flushdeck in front, raised flat aft deck. The teak has been renewed and has never seen the light of day. The inside has 2 entrances, the one in the back leads to the chart table (closest to helm) and the aft cabin with it's own private head and shower which is a walk thru with acces to the galley.
The other acces leads to the wide saloon who easily sits 10 people around a big foldable table, which allows easy passage to the front cabin. The boat sleeps 7 persons, divided over the front cabin (2), the aft cabin (2) and the saloon (1 berth + 1 bunk bed). Next to the entrance door on starboard you'll find the second head with shower, on portside you'll find the galley alongway the midship.
