Sallyfish is an H28 Cruising Ketch to the classic design of the great L Francis Herreshoff. These are superb sea kindly yachts with a great history. This one was built in the 1950s of 1" strip planked Huon Pine on laminated frames with fibreglass sheathed plywood decks. The strip plank construction is very strong and the hull is extremely fair. The raised doghouse cabin superstructure is Oregon. She has timber spars, dacron mainsail and mizzen sail, both with Lazy Jacks and covers and a furling dacron genoa. This H28 is powered by a reliable and economical Yanmar diesel engine driving a 3 blade propeller. The yacht was last slipped and anti-fouled in October 2018 when a new cockpit sole was fitted and her Oregon spars were removed and fully varnished.

She has Autohelm electronics with Speed and Depth functions plus 27Meg and VHF radios and a Plastimo compass. Down below decks she has two settee berths, a marine toilet and a galley with stove and sink. Perfect for day sailing or bay cruising, her shallow draft makes her ideal for the Gippsland Lakes where a number of her sister H28s are to be found. Her current owner has enjoyed her for the last 21 years and now seeks a new custodian to take her over for further adventures.
