H28s are renown for their excellent sea keeping abilities, simplicity to sail, and comfortable interiors. This is a stunning example of the design, having been built by Compass Yachts in NZ, and given a full timber fit out at a quality rarely seen in these vessels. This charming vessel has benefitted from many significant upgrades by fastidious owners, including electrical rewire and new BEP Switchboard, NEW 2012 standing rigging, complete sand back of the hull back to the gelcoat in 2018, excellent canvas work including spray dodger, bimini, and infill, etc. This vessel has been used as a serious blue water cruiser, live aboard, and now used for local cruising by the current owner. With the engine freshly serviced, and exterior varnish work done, the vessel is ready to be enjoyed!

Stepping inside, the quality of the timber fit out is immediately evident. The light timbers and quality velveteen upholstery create a warm and traditional ambience. The saloon is cleverly designed to provide exceptional accomodation for a vessel of this size, with the starboard settee pulling out to create a large double berth, with a single settee berth opposite. A second large double berth is available in the forepeak. The fold out dinette is perfect for entertaining, with seating in the saloon for 6 in comfort. The galley features a 2 burner gas stove, large top loading fridge, stainless steel sink with pressurised water, and clever bench space. Forward is an enclosed bathroom complete with electric toilet with holding tank.

On deck, the spacious cockpit is fully protected with a spray dodger, bimini, and infill. The vessel is well set up for short handed sailing with the Raymarine tiller pilot, electric anchor winch, and furling headsail. The strong, single spreader mast had new standing rigging in 2012, and all timber trims have been freshly varnished.

This vessel is powered by a well maintained Yanmar 20HP diesel engine which was installed new in the mid 90s. Its most recent full service was September 2020.

This impressive vessel offers excellent versatility. It is a truely capable offshore vessel, having sailed over from New Zealand. With its excellent sea keeping abilities and simple sail plan, it would also make a safe and fun first vessel for someone new to sailing, or an ideal family yacht. With many upgrades done, this vessel is ready to be enjoyed! For more information please call Jo Breen on 0432031100.
