Layout and Accommodations
Boarding from the stern, access to the boat is easy whether from the dock or the water with a large swim platform and transom door to the cockpit. The 3888 boasts plenty of room in her cockpit for a table and chairs or can be left open for water sports, fishing or diving. The cockpit gives easy access through three hatches to the generator and rudders as well providing plentiful storage below the deck. Forward in the cockpit is the ladder to the bridge, cabin door and an innovative feature in a boat of this size, a door into the engine room. With access from the cockpit, maintenance is easy and no salon floorboards being lifted or even interior access is required to work on the engines.
The flybridge above provides excellent sight lines and wrap around seating for keeping the captain company. A full enclosure makes this a great all seasons helm but there is also a lower helm where one can enjoy the heat and air conditioning for those really hot and cold days. Once inside the cabin the innovative two stateroom, two head layout is really hard to beat. The salon features a large wrap around lounge and table to port, lower helm to starboard and the galley just slightly down and forward but still filled with plenty of natural light. The mid stateroom rivals the master in size and has a good size double berth and its own head with tub/shower.
The master forward has a centerline double berth with access from both sides as well as its own private head. An amazing amount of room in under 40 feet!

Engine and Mechanicals
"Breakin Wind" had her original Hino Diesels replaced with a set of Cummins Factory Re-Manufactured 210hp Diesels. The Cummins provide extra torque and reliability with a much easier service and part network to deal with. The repower included transmissions and was performed by a reputable yard here in Maryland. Only 110 hours since the install so these motors are fresh and ready to cruise!
