1959 Herreschoff 28 now for sale with DBY Boat Sales.
This Herreschoff 28 from 1959 is as pretty as you'll find them.
Like all good yachts from that era, she is made from solid timbers and a few brass fittings add to her charm. Bronze opening portlights and a timber butterfly coach house hatch for good air flow throughout the yacht plus a large opening hatch forward of the mast.
An upgraded, reliable Kubota diesel engine with shaft drive is a real bonus to this old classic head turner.
2 burner metho stove, marine head and sleeping accommodation for 4 or more.
There are numerous sails within the wardrobe including a spinnaker.
Twin batteries and a mixture of old and newer electrics.
GME VHF radio and safety equipment included.
Full boat covers from bow to stern.
Recently slipped for antifoul in January 2020, she is ready to sail away this summer.
A timeless classic worth inspecting.
For sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales Pittwater Office in Newport. Please call +61 2 9999 3311 for an inspection. For additional high resolution photos and detailed inventory, please email email@example.com.
