Broadblue 385


Sail Performance





JANUARY 2023 - Broadblue announces new update to the ever popular Broadblue 385, the new series 4!

New features include a forward facing sail station to improve ease of handling when sailing shorthanded
Self-tacking headsail for ease of handling and improved upwind performance
Removal of backstays to allow square top mainsail for more sail area and better sailing performance
Electric headsail furlers added to options list
The 385S3 (Series 3) is our most popular model for long distance cruising and combines ease of handling with robust construction, modern hull form, quality craftsmanship and elegant joinery. She is designed for single or short-hand sailing and achieves this by combining a smaller mainsail and larger headsails with all lines led aft to the cockpit. All sail handling can be done without needing to venture away from the cockpit.

The Broadblue 385S3 is built to the highest level of European Recreational Craft Directive: Category A (Ocean) and is built using the highest standard materials. She is virtually unsinkable due to her watertight bulkheads and buoyancy compartments fore and aft. The keels are integrally moulded and sealed off from the hulls forming a double bottom.

Our 385S3 customers have circumnavigated the World, enjoyed cruising around the Caribbean, Mediterranean and British Virgin Islands to name but a few and always lived the dream!
