The Herreshoff H28 design boasts an exceptional reputation for their impressive sailing ability in even the most challenging conditions. This stunning vessel is an excellent example of the design and has been superbly maintained through out its life. With an extra 3" of free-board added to the original plans, it boasts excellent headroom throughout. The generous bowsprit and powerful cutter rig also allowed for a more spacious cockpit design, making the vessel a joy to sail with friends and family. Built over 3 years by renowned Launceston (TAS) timber boat builder Cecil Cartlidge, the First Grade Huon Pine was sourced from Strahan on Tasmania's Westcoast. Carvel planed over Huon Pine frames, and air dried Tasmanian Oak deck beams, the quality of the build is second to none! With the full length traditional keel providing excellent stability, this much loved vessel has been cruised locally as well as being a regular competitor in local twilight racing. In recent years it has received many upgrades including a NEW 2014 21HP NANNI DIESEL ENGINE WITH ONLY 105HRS ON THE CLOCK! Having been ANTIFOULED, TOPSIDES REPAINTED, AND BRIGHTWORK VARNISHED IN JAN 2023, the vessel presents in exceptional condition, ready to delight its next custodian!

The accommodation is excellent with a generous double v-berth forward with closing door, two single settee berths, and a single quarter berth aft. The package is complete with a marine toilet in the forepeak.
