Broker's Comments

Recently professionally power washed and cleaned, this Aquabell 28 is a very comfortable river cruiser. Boasting some ingenious storage solutions having been refitted to the current owners exact standards.

She appears in generally sound condition and would make the ideal boat for two people. Fully equipped galley with good sized cooker and fridge.

Was fitted with new hydraulics and Nanni engine in 2009, which has only done 100 hours cruising - so plenty of life left in her!

These sedan style cruisers offer fantastic outside space for fishing, entertaining or enjoying some sunny weather. Also included in the sale is a cockpit cover.

Overall, an easy to handle, all weather small cruiser with an engine that has hardly warmed up!
