Broker's Comments

A great example of the legendary Swedish designed Shipman 28. About 1300 of these yachts were built in Scandinavia and Ireland and this particular one has been lovingly cared for and upgraded. Her presentation certainly belies her age and she certainly out performs many newer rivals on the water. A serious contender if you are looking for a cruising yacht with excellent sailing performance. The new owner of this vessel will join many other proud Shipman 28 owners, with a strong owners association available for support.
