New Helmsman 38E

Hello! We are in Victoria BC and are very excited to be on the list for a Helmsman 38E. Fell in love a couple of years ago but not easy to see them in the flesh. We are in the process of finalizing our options list for delivery summer 2023 and would be grateful for any suggestions —already had some great advice from a couple of current owners. First question is L or T shaped counter in the salon and if anyone has a double or one-and-a-half sink? Please share your thoughts.
Cheers and thanks.

There are numerous Helmsman threads in the Helmsman folder. I suggest you begin with those two but there are other good ones.

Welcome aboard!

And by the way, the standard galley for us. But with electric induction cooktop and convection microwave.

We did the same and also ordered the one and a half sink. We’re hull 50. What is your number?

Just in the process of choosing options and about to make deposit so haven't got the hull number yet. Have only seen an L-shape countertop layout and it is difficult to put anything but a single sink in the corner. Would have to move it to stern or side. My impression from photos was that T-shape broke up the salon space but I guess it gives you a corner to put things in!
Everything seems to be a compromise!

The T provides for a space for another chair. A big deal for us.

Welcome aboard,

We're Hull No. 50, to be christened "Alba Bella". Our 38E is just about to go in the molds, if it already hasn't. We're just across the water from you in La Conner. There are two of them in our marina and we had been drooling on them before we decided to order a new build. We'll be seeing you out on the water.
