Heard 28
Remarks :
This Heard 28 is one of a kind, she was lavishly fitted out when first built in 1982 and fitted out by a Wadebridge shipwright, in Iroko Mahogany and teak, everything is substantially built and of real quality. Many fittings are solid bronze or brass, these materials are materials that you just would not have on a modern build!
The teak lantern forehatch has recently be fully refurbished with new seals and re-varnished, there is a brass Victory heater that can provide warmth in the main cabin and a hot water supply from a Vailant waterheater.
Descending into the saloon you have a feel of entering into a traditional gentlmans club, with the ambiance of the oil lamps mahogany, it has a real traditional feel.
She was built for a fastidious owner who wanted a true classic passage making gaff rigging cruising yacht.
She is only in her second ownership from new and the first owner participated and won several Falmouth working boat regattas, he owned her for over thirty years, being regularly maintained by Tom Boatyard in Polruan.
She has original gelcoat finish with the underwater profile being coppercoat antifouled
The boat is currently lying ashore in the most beautiful place in Cornwall and the yard fees are paid until May 2016 for a new owner!
