Blue Water Cruisers19688.5 m/28 ft
Inspired by the Folkboat concept but emphsising the accommodation, the Great Dane 28, designed by Aage Utzon of Denmark, found favour with offshore sailers. The sea kindly hull and substantial keel provides a predictable performance best suited to Channel sea conditions. The GD 28 was first brought to the UK market in 1965. A managable boat shorthanded, the GD28 will make a fine family cruiser at a very modest cost. The vessel has some racing pedgree too!
