Very well maintained example of this popular model with twin turbocharged Hino 175 diesels, extended flybridge, full isinglass flybridge and cockpit enclosures and bow-mounted, inflatable dinghy.

Powerboat Guide says that the 3818 "..has long been recognized as a good value for those seeking a comfortable diesel cruiser at an affordable price. Built on a low-deadrise  modified-V hull, the key feature of the [3818/] 3870/3888 was her innovative mid-cabin floorplan with a double berth that extends under the salon sole. A lower helm was standard in the salon, and there's a surprisingly large master stateroom forward. Note that there are two heads in this  layout, one with at tub/shower stall.  On deck, the cockpit is large enough for a couple of [five with custom extended flybridge deck]  deck chairs on the flybridge."  

Note: Owner reports fuel consumption as 6 gal per hour at 10 knot cruising speed.

One of the cleanest boats you'll find.
