Broker's Comments

The Trapper T28 is a seaworthy cruiser designed with both cruising and racing in mind. They are quick and responsive and look great with nice lines. Although the interior space is less than you might find on a modern cruiser of the same length they will still sleep 4; have a separate heads with hand basin and part of the galley can double as a good sized nav. station too. The Trapper T28 is very similar to the Trapper 400.
This one has been well maintained and has been updated recently with new interior upholstery; spray hood, stack pack and the instrumentation all were new in 2011 see details above. The Beta engine is also quite recent having been fitted in 2005.
