This boat was built from scratch over 12 years by her former owners, the design is more often found on the East Coast where Maurice Griffiths was based and did most of his sailing. She is considerably bigger looking and heavier that most 28 footers, she has proved to be a good seaboat. She differs slightly from the original design in having a doghouse and an offset companionway, both features pinched from her larger sister the 31' Tidewater. The offset companionway leads to much better access to the engine without compromising cabin space. She has sailed extensively around the Channel, with her bilge keels she can go in a variety of harbours. A chance to acquire a stunning classic yacht, all varnished ready to go. Last anti fouled June 2021.Read more
