New Williams 38 Under Construction

We have embarked on the construction of a NEW Williams 38. A takeoff of the popular and attractive Stanley 38, the new boat will essentially be a hybrid of a new modern modified V underbody, designed by Doug Zurn Yacht Design, and the classic lines and profile of a typical Stanley lobster boat above the waterline. Power will be provided by twin Volvo Penta D-6 engines combined with the Volvo Penta IPS pod drive system producing greater speed and efficiency. No compromise will be made in creating the same quality and attention to aesthetic detail that is the JWBoat Co.’s reputation. The hull will be built on a strong back with station molds, full cored sandwich construction and vinyl ester resin throughout the laminate. This will be mated with a standard Stanley 38 molded cabin top and then finished inside in the traditional Herreshoff style with antique white NidaCore bulkheads and varnished mahogany trim in the forecastle. Deep varnished teak will create a beautiful, relaxing pilothouse with custom furniture and signature JWBoat Co. seating and helm console. Launch is set for Summer 2016.
