Manufacturer Provided Description
The Vancouver 28 is a direct descendant from the original Vancouver 27, she is beautifully balanced, so much so that she will sail herself. Even when her large stowage area is full to capacity she carries the load without impeding her sailing performance. The Vancouver 28 effortlessly maintains a high average speed, enabling owners to plan on covering 100 nautical miles in a day. She offers a flexible sail plan with her strong, versatile cutter rig. Everything about this yacht should recommend itself to a sailing couple:- Comfortable, good sized sea berths, a wet locker adjacent to the companionway, large chart table, good ventilation, easy access to all parts for maintenance and generous storage space.
