Trusty T28

£167,500 vat paid

Built by Windboats Marine Ltd, the Trusty T28's state of the art semi-displacement hull gives her superb stability and sea keeping qualities. Her classic looks coupled with the very highest quality of build; whilst still offering a great deal of luxury and comfort makes her the ideal boat for a couple or family who want to appreciate one of the most premium boats in this sector of the market. A generous forward cabin along with a good sized galley and saloon area means that weekends away are more than pleasant. A second cabin also allows for friends and family to stay on board too.

Just reduced by over GBP 22,000 to GBP 167,500 making her exceptional value for such a stalwart cruiser....
