Herreshoff H-28 "Barquero"
Start Auto SlideShow Full Screen PopUp
Classic long keel design in solid fibreglass with excellent recent upgrades. "Barquero" was built in NZ and has crossed the Tasmana several times. She is a strongly built vessel and the addition of a hard dodger makes her a very comfortable and safe cruiser. In the past 5 years much money has been spent; the boat has been rewired, the hull repainted, new electronics installed and the engine rebuilt.

H28s are renowned as bullet-proof yachts. They have cruised offshore and several have sailed around the world. If you are looking for a really safe, seakindly yacht to start your sailing adventure and want a lot of boat for a modest price you really should look at "Barquero".

Don't forget - an important part of buying and owning a boat is loving the way it looks. With her dark blue hull and graceful sheer, "Barquero" will always attract attention. Contact us to arrange inspection.

Remarks  L. Francis Herreshoff's parameters when designing the H28 were:

1. Maximum room for the cost without sacrificing looks and speed.
2. A shape that should stay entirely tight even if exposed to considerable strain or twisting.
3. A draft deep enough to allow good windward performance in heavy weather
4. A draft shallow enough to avoid the need to row miles to shore when anchored in a picturesque bay.

The enormous success of the design proved that he had got it right on all counts. Click Special Presentation above to learn all about these wonderful yachts.
