Broker's Comments

This Weldcraft Northwind 28 Flybridge Sedan is a very clean single-diesel powered vessel. A well-maintained comfortable island cruising boat. You'll very seldom find a sedan-style fiberglass boat in this size range and price range with quality diesel power and thruster.

Recent Dickenson diesel stove professionally installed.
CSR Marine completed striping of all coats of bottom paint and replaced with 4-coat epoxy.
Engine and V-drive oil changed.
New Racor fuel filters
Felix Industries competed a Full detail including a wet sand upper fly bridge to remove oxidation. Recent Sunbrella cleaning and waterproofing of fly bridge canvas.
Replaced two 8D with newer batteries.
