Very well thought out saloon and cabin area offering comfortable and uncluttered accommodation. The galley is one of the largest and certainly one of the neatest I've seen on a 28' yacht. Benefits too from Calorifier supplied hot water and cabin heating via Eberspacher.

Broker's Comments

A fine example of this spacious, stable and manageable family yacht. Constant use and good maintainance ensures this craft is kept in very presentable condition. Revered for their legendary build quality, the integrity and strength of construction has resulted in an excellent reputation for quality short handed sailing combined with ample accommodation for up to 5 persons in comfort. Shallow Draft, centreboard & vestigial bilge keels all make this an ideal East coast sailor or perfect for those dried out moorings! Priced as she is, she will not remain on our books for long!!
