ACT THREE | 2006 Admiral 38

Pasadena, MD, US


This Admiral Executive 38 is the polished Owner’s version. Her 23' beam and open design makes for a very spacious 38' catamaran. Admiral catamarans are true blue-water passage makers, the wide beam and excellent hull design handles and sails like a larger catamaran.

ACT THREE has recently completed a multi-yearlong cruise to the Caribbean and is completely set up for off-grid living.  Her impressive equipment list and numerous significant upgrades make this the perfect boat for someone who is ready to hop onboard and do the same.

Since purchasing her in 2018, the current owners have put over $100,000 in upgrades and have enjoyed sailing the East Coast and escaping the cold Pennsylvania winters by living aboard in the islands. Now they are ready to move on to adventures on land.

Act Three lives like a much larger catamaran. There is 6’1” headroom in the cabins and 6’4” in the saloon. Cockpit and Salon cushions were recovered in 2020. The starboard hull is dedicated to the owners with a forward head including a Jabsco electric macerating toilet, shower, full sized sink and full length mirror. There is loads of storage midships and a queen size berth in the aft cabin with locker, drawers, shelving and hanging closet. The guest accommodations are in the port hull with a double berth fwd, head midships with a Jabsco electric macerating toilet, shower and full size sink and queen size berth in the aft cabin. Guests have plenty of storage including a hanging locker, shelved locker and drawers. All closet doors have Beechwood open lattice facing for improved air circulation.

Three 12v fans, one in each cabin and two CruiseAir units keep the interior cool throughout. 14 Lewmar port lights with trim and screens and 4 Lewmar hatches with trim, Lewmar Roller Screens and Sunscreens keep the fresh air flowing. 4 large viewing windows are protected by exterior sunscreens to help keep the daytime heat out.

The Cockpit has a Captain’s seat for two.  The large table and seating make outdoor living a pleasure.  Act Three has a full cockpit enclosure and a sun awning for over the living quarters of the boat for those lazy days at anchor.  The trampolines were recently restrung with Dyneema lacing and provide the perfect spot for sundowners as you watch for the elusive green flash.

This Admiral Executive has been meticulously maintained and thoughtfully upgraded. Regular maintenance and annual haulouts have provided us with a very dependable vessel. A detailed maintenance document is available upon request and spares for several systems are included.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

— Jimmy

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

— JT

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
