Overview

Repowered in late 2020 with new 2021 Yamaha 425 XTO Offshore engines, which are under warranty until March 2025, and Yamaha extended warranties can be purchased. The cost of this repower was in excess of $125,000. 

 

If you are an EdgeWater fan you will likely recognize the pleasant sweep of the 388's sheer. However, if you look more closely you will notice that there is something very different going on below her sheer. The 388's hull form features a single transverse step, a first for EdgeWater, and designed by Michael Peters.

Michael Peters is a brilliant Naval Architect and it's very hard to find one of his designs that does not impress, and this is particularly true of his single-step hull designs. His portfolio includes a fleet of stepped monohulls as well as a stable of 150-plus-knot multi-stepped cats designed for offshore racing. Designers employ steps to increase lift and reduce drag. "At speed the water and air aft of the step are emulsified-the effect is something akin to running on ball bearings," said Peters. The 388's transverse step divides the bottom into two lifting surfaces. To prevent suction, a path for air is provided between them-thus the notch on the 388's chine. Step placement, angle of attack, and the location of the center of gravity are critical. "Stepped hulls tend to trim one or two degrees less than conventional forms," says Peters. This keeps the forefoot engaged with the sea and because of the divided running surface drag is minimized. 

Fuel is carried in a 340- gallon main tank and a 120-gallon auxiliary that can be selected remotely from the helm.

Like most stepped hulls, the 388 is less animated when interacting with a head sea; but she is not overly stiff longitudinally. Her forward sections soften things up without a fuss or spray and what's left of the seas pass efficiently aft. Power-assist steering allows finger-tip control and she tracks true, banking and turning predictably. A bow thruster is standard, which makes sense on an outboard-powered boat of this size.

EdgeWater's high standards include gasketed hatches that are finished on the inside and fitted with positive latches. High quality 316L stainless steel hardware and powder-coated aluminum pipe work are typically one size larger than you might expect. The drop-bolster seat has integral tackle storage and provides a stable leaning post or a comfortable perch at speed. A door in the console allows access to an enclosed head with a freshwater sink and a handheld shower. This dry location also has standup rod storage and is home to the electrical panel and a compartment for the batteries.

There are two in-sole fish boxes aft with overboard discharge. A hatch on centerline allows access to a bilge service and stowage area with an aluminum diamond-plate sole bonded to the hull's inner skin. A fold-down transom bench seat tucks out of the way to clear the cockpit for fishing. Rod storage is under the gunwales. A sink and a LiveWell are built into the transom and a door allows access to the platform. There is more seating and storage forward as well as an additional in-sole fish box. A hatch covers the recessed anchor windlass and a washdown tap is provided for tidying up ground tackle, and the boat is fitted with a first-rate factory fiberglass hardtop!

The 388's hull is built using a resin-infusion method EdgeWater calls SPI (Single Piece Infusion). Stitched reinforcement materials are arranged in female tooling and sealed with a plastic membrane. A vacuum is drawn and catalyzed vinylester resin is flowed into the material to form the laminate. This includes the wetting out of the reinforcement surrounding the foam-cored stringers and web frames, eliminating problems with secondary bonding. The process allows precise control of the resin content and produces a stronger, lighter, and more consistent result than conventional hand lamination. Once the hull is complete, the deck/liner molding is bonded and mechanically fastened to the hull. According to EdgeWater the 388 is unsinkable. Hulls are finished with Imron and the deck, liner, and console are finished in gelcoat.
