At the heart of all Salona yachts is the hallmark stainless steel frame that securely spreads the loads from the keel, shrouds and mast evenly throughout the hull, but the design of the Salona-38 goes a step further.  Layers of carbon fiber have been added to carefully designated areas of the hull’s inner liner, resulting in maximum stiffness and durability, and achieving equilibrium with her stainless-steel structure.


Rarely will you see a vessel with both the fine attributes and details demanded by the racing enthusiast and also the comfort demanded by the cruising family.  This Salona-38 is such a vessel.
