The Cavalier 28 is the ideal family boat with a roomy interior layout which includes a comfortable owners cabin, a fully enclosed private head, galley, dinette with sleeping space for a crew of five.

Designer Laurie Davidson of America's Cup fame wanted to offer a yacht that could be swift on the race course yet comfortable and simple to sail, easily managed by a small crew. This eye catching yacht sails very well and handling is incredibly easy with great cruising and club racing capability.

'First Light' was launched in 1985 and has been a much loved member of the family for her current and past owners. She has been the perfect boat for a small family of four who have enjoyed exploring Pittwater and surrounds with their two children who are now competent little sailors. They love the practical roomy interior spending many cosy nights and weekends away.

This yacht has been really loved and well maintained and presents in excellent condition. She was re-rigged in 2012 and has Raymarine wind, speed and depth instrumentation, navigation lights, tiller auto pilot, near new spinnaker, near new batteries and her engine is serviced annually by the owner. She comes complete with a robust dinghy and outboard engine and safety gear so you are ready to set off immediately. Her cockpit is well protected and safe for family sailing and entertaining with an awning for those hot sunny days and she is very spacious for all the family when the tiller is raised out of the way at anchor. She was last antifouled and hull polished by Bayview Shipwrights in April 2021.

If you're looking for a solid, safe, and surprisingly quick family yacht that will give you many years of memories to come, 'First Light' is the perfect yacht 'package' for you whether you are new to sailing or not. She is available for private viewings in Pittwater by the owners and will not disappoint.
