Long list of past boats. Now living aboard Manda Lea, 1987 3870 in Townsville, Qld, Australia. Sailed up here in 2013 aboard my 2008 Bavaria 37 which has now been sold.

I have 1990 model 3888 and she has plastic holding and water tanks, fuel tanks are aluminium, but those can be replaced quite easily if needed.
Only soft spot I had, was flybridge seating and radar arch top panel. Great boat with only 600 hrs Hino 175's

3888_fin, 600 hours in 26 years? That's about 23 hours a year average! That boat is way underused!

I know, luckily she's been sitting in warm hangar for winter and is well maintained also, new oil and antifreeze after every season in water etc. just replaced original risers... :)
