Great Dane - 28
These Danish built sturdy cruising boats were built from 1965 until 1989 and some 300 were built, inspired by the Folkboat amongst others they do look similar to the Twister. They were all made of GRP and have over 6ft of headroom below decks.
The Great Dane 28 is a well designed and very well built sailboat having good comfort and seaworthiness, but not alas the fastest racer (of today)
We all hear people say that 'you can only have 2 out of 3 of the following options for a sailboat, speed, comfort or a cheap price, well i guess you wouldn't be first out of the starting blocks here BUT you would arrive safely in comfort and happy.......

The present owner has really looked after this boat, having bought it in 2003 it has steadily undergone a virtual refit with many new items on the inventory.
The interior joinery is of a very high standard along with the varnishing.
She has been completely rewired again to a very high standard.
New cooker with all the gas regulated fittings and a new galley with joinery hard to find fault with.
On climbing aboard she smells clean and fresh and you get the complete feeling of a well built sturdy boat more than capable of long sea voyages, her heavy displacement and good ballast ratio all combine to make her safe and extremely seaworthy.
