Broker's Comments

Lifting keel sloop with seperate aft cabin and accommodation for 6 people; the Seal 28 is an excellent family cruising yacht.

This boat has lots of equipment and is in very good condition. The hull is the original gel coat, not often the case with boats of this age, she really is a nice example and well worth viewing.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
