General Description

Vessel is in the water, available for trial run! 

Load the rods and ice, power up the electronics, hit start buttons and GO!!!!

This owner is serious to sell! The current owner purchased her in 2008 and has since kept her maintained to the highest standard. Her mechanical and electrical systems are professionally maintained and a highly respected yacht management company has taken care of her topside aesthetics since 2008. She is washed bi-monthly when not in use and is in a monthly rotation for topside gelcoat and metal polish and wax.  She is annually hauled, serviced and hull polished and waxed. 

Let’s not forget the “Magician” is rigged to be fished!!! The current owner has heavy tackle fished with some of the best Captains around the world and has caught many marlin over 800lbs and bluefin tuna exceeding 1000lbs! The owner has incorporated what he has learned from how they set their boats up on the Magician. She is rigged to fish for Giant Bluefin in Maine or giant Allison tuna in the Gulf of Mexico and anything in between!

Manufacturer Description
Henriques’ 38 El Bravo boat aims to please the die-hard sports fisherman. Her heavy weather hull, the same as on the 38 Sportfisherman, has proven capable of taking on even the worst sea conditions. As one owner put it, “This boat can take anything you throw at it.”

Like the other boats in Henriques’ lineup, the El Bravo boasts a lot of cockpit space ­­- 140 square feet, to be exact. She also has two 103 gallon fish boxes, complete bait & tackle center, fresh and saltwater washdowns, 10 stainless swivel steel rod holders, and plenty of room for the Pompanette Unlimited Fighting Chair. A fiberglass hardtop, flush mounted electronics console, chart table, and lockable rod stowage are just part of the long list of standard features that prime this 38 footer to do battle with the big ones.

But don’t think that her hardcore fishing capabilities leave this boat lacking in accommodations. For those overnight jaunts, there is air conditioning, genset, a fully equipped head with shower, and a galley with refrigerator/freezer; microwave, sink, stowage, and convertible dinette.

The 38 El Bravo is truly the ultimate in quality! Everything you’d expect from the boat the pros use!
