Description: Herreshoff 28 STUNNING CAPABLE CRUISER IN EXCELLENT CONDITION!
The Herreshoff H28 design is renowned for its exceptional sea keeping abilities, and many have completed impressive Bluewater passages. This vessel really is something special! When it was built, an extra plank was added to the topsides which has significantly increased the interior space and headroom. Superbly constructed out of spotted gum and white beech, this vessel has a real wow factor when you walk up to it. The vessel has also benefited from significant upgrades including NEW 2022 STANDING RIGGING AND THE MASTS REFURBISHED, NEW 2022 FULL BOAT COVER, NEW 2017 BATTERIES, the list goes on! This versatile vessel would suit anyone from a timber boat enthusiast, through to anyone looking for a safe and capable cruiser. Whether you want to sail the channel, around Australia, or even further afield, this is a vessel that can do it all in style!

Stepping inside, the quality of the timber fit out is immediately evident. The traditional timber is offset with white trims and neat teal upholstery. There is a stunning central dinette with seating for 6 in comfort. The galley is to port and features a 2 burner stove, stainless steel sink and fresh water. There is also a 240V outlet to power your modern appliances while in the marina. The vessel has a traditional chart table which will please the most discerning sailor, and the package is complete with private manual toilet forward.

Outside, the cockpit is well set up with simple sailing systems and classic touches. The winches and fair-leads are traditional bronze, and the vessel is set up to be easily managed shorthanded with the furling headsail, and main and mizzen in boom bags with lazy jacks. There is easy access around the wind side decks, and plenty of hand holds for going forward in more challenging conditions. The bright work, cabin top, and topsides are all in excellent condition. This is a vessel that will really turn heads where ever it pulls into port!

This vessel is powered by a marinised Kubota 3 cylinder 28HP Diesel Engine. This provides easy and economically cruising at 5 knots. There is good access to the engine under the companionway steps, and excellent sound proofing in the engine bay.

This is a vessel that really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. With the H28 pedigree, extra internal space, and many upgrades, it is sure to impress! For more information please call Jo Breen on 0432031100 or John Radonic on 0459322862.
