Cavalier 28

1983 Cavalier 28 now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.

Cavalier 28, launched 1983, rigging replaced 2012 and ready to go.

This is one of the best entry level family yachts around, with good performance twilight racing and coastal cruising ability on a minimal budget. Well-regarded high-performance yachts for their size.

This one is the standard layout with generous interior volume and 5 berths. Simple 2 ring burner metho cooking at the galley and hand pump fresh water facilities.

The 2012 standing rigging, new chain plates at the same time and full mast-boom refurbishment is a nice bonus.

Running rigging was replaced in 2018.

A recent September 2020 anti-foul and a November engine service means she is turn-key and ready to go. The Jib was fully refurbished and vacu-washed in April 2020.
