Fjord 38 Xpress Overview

Combining speed, comfort and versatility the Fjord 38 Express is the most sporting yacht of the Fjord fleet.

Since its presentation in 2017 this Fjord has incorporated the signature features of its larger sister ship such as a nearly vertical plumb bow, high freeboard, bold, horizontal sheer line, frameless windshield, a spacious flat deck layout and an open transom. Fjords offer spectacular one-level designs with high-quality Scandinavian influenced interiors and are certain to impress.

To enjoy the Fjord’s entertainer mode, smart options abound such as the aft cockpit lounge with a height-adjustable table for eight that converts to a sun lounger for three creating the ambience of a stylish sea terrace. An outdoor galley with wet bar, grill and fridge located behind the 38 Xpress’s steering console furnishes all catering requirements. The bow area accommodates a table with seating for six persons and can be fitted with an electric table which lowers to convert into a forward sunbed as well.  Biminis stretching forward over the bow lounge and over the aft deck can be unfurled from the T-Top, shading the entire length of the boat, a necessity in Australian conditions. The carbon/fibre T-Top is an engineering feat in its own right, boasting ambient lightning and dark tinted skylights. Two brilliant spaces enhancing the layout solutions for a yacht with outboards.

The Fjord 38 Xpress enables you to gather with family and friends in two separately defined areas without ever feeling overcrowded.  From here it’s just a few steps down to the inviting lower deck accommodations comprising a master cabin with double berth, fridge and storage. The privacy offered by the comfortable full height bathroom in the cabin is unmatched in this range of boats with two doors separating you from the outside deck area. These kinds of amenities set the Fjord 38 Xpress apart in this class of boat.

The standard engine setup of two 300hp Mercury Verados delivers 38kts, while twin 350hp Verados see the 38 Xpress achieve an exhilarating 43kt. Outboard engines have the advantages of good low-speed manoeuvrability, fuel economy and ensuring access to shallow waters and beaches, thanks to a maximum draft of 0.94.

For watersport lovers the deck can be configured flush to allow the handling of the desired sports equipment.  The huge hold under the aft deck area can accommodate all the necessary gear for fishing or diving, even a small dinghy with outboard.
