Originally designed by Herreshoff of NZ, and further improved by the legendary Khan Walker, the Walker H28 is renowned for its true Bluewater capability. Featuring a ketch rig, and full integral keel, these yachts have completed many major successful passages including around Australia and across the Tasman Sea! This vessel is an excellent example of the design, presenting in good condition throughout. It has been under the same ownership for the last 7 years, and regularly cruised around the stunning waters of Southern Tasmania during that time. With its safety and stability, it is ideally suited as a first yacht, family cruiser, or would even make a comfortable and economical live aboard.

Inside, the vessel has a traditional fit out with lovely timber trims and neat upholstery. The galley is to port and features a 2 burner metho stove, excellent storage, and a stainless steel sink with fresh water. Opposite is a true chart table which also houses a large icebox. The spacious saloon has seating for 6 in comfort around the timber dinette. Forward is a private cabin featuring an electric toilet, and two mid length single berths ideal for younger crew members. There is also accommodation for 4 adults with two settee singles (which can be converted to a double athwart ships), and two single pilot berths.

On deck, the cockpit is very well protected with the spray dodger, and storm cloths around the guard rails. There is also a matching set of red cockpit cushions, ideal for relaxing at anchor. The ketch rig offers excellent versatility when sailing, and gives plenty of options in more challenging condition. With the furling headsail, sail handling is a breeze. There is easy access forward around the side decks, and two solar panels to keep the batteries topped up. There is an electric anchor winch fitted on the bow, and the strong bow sprit adds to the traditional aesthetics of the design.

This vessel is powered by a well maintained Bukh 20HP diesel engine. This was last serviced in March 2021, and provides reliable and economical cruising at 5 knots.

This charming vessel is a real head turner, and is capable of fulfilling even the most ambitious cruising aspirations. For more information please call Jo Breen on 0432031100 or John Radonic on 0459322862.
