Broker's Comments

Not your average 28 foot boat, this innovative design caused a stir at launch and was very well received by reviewers at the time. Having researched these boats, it is generally mentioned that the longer they are sailed the more people love them. Well balanced at sea these are really a go anywhere boat built to high Germanic standards. There is nothing derogatory to report other than the compass needs refurbishment. The boat has a fully portable cradle for Winter storage available by separate negotiation.
