Broker's Comments

The Great Dane 28 is an excellent Long Keel Yacht; capable of handling pretty much most conditions. Designed by Ange Utzon and built by Klaus Baess in Denmark they are sturdy and well built.
This boat has been very well maintained and had some major upgrades during the last 8 or 9 years. These included new sails and rigging, a new Nanni diesel engine with fresh water cooling, a variety of electronic equipment, new windows and headlinings, a full rewire and more!

These boat details are subject to contract.
