Bill Prince-drawn 28m deck-saloon sloop...

Design

Her high-volume composite hull with low-wetted-surface area and board-down draft of 4.5m (14ft 9in), coupled with a tall carbon sloop rig, makes her a useful world cruiser.

JANUARY 2010

With the board up she draws just 1.95m (6ft 5in)
A large deck salon incorporates raised seating and a full bar with excellent views out of the large deckhouse windows. For entertaining, the main salon with its formal dining area and deep couches combines traditional nautical aesthetics with modern amenities including a pop-up entertainment system.
Accommodation aft consists of a spacious guest suite with double berth, a children’s cabin with twin berths and a Pullman and the master suite.
She is designed to be built to both Lloyd’s Rules and MCA certification.
