Broker's Comments

This Seal 28 for sale with Boatshed Port Solent will make a great family Cruiser, I know this because the family who cruise her have told me! The after cabin is a great asset when the children are young – just fill it with Meccano, Lego and Barbie Dolls and off you go!

To get a 28 foot boat for the asking price, in reasonably good order throughout, you should have to pay a fair amount more!

Her sails are getting a past their sell-by date, but that’s an issue for next season maybe? The engine has only 343 hours on, so there’s plenty of life in the old girl yet!

This yacht has a separate double berth in the stern cabin, twin bunks or a double in the forward cabin and still has room for a double in the saloon, you just need to pull out the infill and hit the sack!

A good roomy cruiser, safe, seamanlike, not too much money – come on, go for it”
