The Little Harbor 38 WhisperJet has a strong hull fabricated from a combination of knitted bi- directional E-glass with Kevlar hybrid laminate, foam-cored for strength and sound deadening throughout. This combination of superior materials results in a stronger boat that is lighter -- thus faster and more fuel efficient.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Little Harbor WhisperJet 38 offers a modern deep-V hull form designed specifically for jet drives. Each boat has an innovative twin chine configuration that minimizes waterline beam for performance and fuel economy and maximizes interior volume for accommodations. In addition, the twin chine eliminates annoying "wave slap" common to many boats while at rest. Dead rise angle is 17 degrees at the transom. Each model has a classic hull profile with an aggressive bow overhang and low-profile deck configuration. All models are available as an express cruiser with an open mid-deck area protected by a removable soft top. A focal point of the 38 is the large and comfortable cockpit salon featuring an L-shaped settee with casual seating for four. The helm area has been designed to position all instruments and controls at their optimal location in relation to the helmsman. A work area is located across from the helm.  The interior accommodations are both straightforward and commodious. The owner's stateroom forward includes a large U-berth (as opposed to the typical narrow V-berth) with two 36-inch wide berths that can be converted into a double with a filler piece. There is a large hanging locker and numerous drawers and storage lockers. Further aft, the layout feature a large galley to port refrigerator and freezer, cooktop, and abundant storage lockers.The elegant yet functional interior features solid American Cherry trim. The overhead panels are covered with padded fabric and are completely removable. Main bulkhead surfaces are Formica, drawers are solid cherry. Doors and drawers feature Kroon flush positive-lock latches and roller bearing drawer slides. Cabin soles are varnished teak and holly. The main engines are surrounded by a carefully engineered, soundproofed compartment, making the raised salon a comfortable, quiet place while underway, even at high speeds. The water jet system is located well aft for easy access via hatches through the aft deck. The water jet configuration eliminates the need for external shafts, props, and rudders, thereby removing a substantial amount of running vibration and allowing one to virtually run right over floating hazards - such as trap buoys - without fouling. The resulting shallow draft also allows one to safely gunkhole shallow waters off-limits to most boats of this size. As a final benefit, the water jet provides superior maneuverability in tight quarters utilizing a twin jet configuration. The hull and deck are built of molded fiberglass using Vinylester resin and foam core. The hull lamination is further reinforced with a Kevlar hybrid to increase collision strength and add stiffness. All fuel tanks are welded aluminum. Structural bulkheads are cored fiberglass bonded to hull and deck and all deck hardware is polished stainless steel.
