Broker's Comments

The Heard 28 is a traditional Falmouth working boat as used in oyster dredging and racing and is much sought after. This cruising version has had lots of work carried out and money spent since August 2005 by her shipwright owner and partner. They were planning to cruise the Mediterranean in her, however a wooden yawl in the USA has now stolen their hearts and changed their plans. They are therefore selling her with everything that’s not practical to take with them, even including a comprehensive set of shipwright’s tools.
