Broker Remarks

'Fancy Vancouver' is a great example of the Vancouver 28 which has a well-deserved reputation as the classic offshore cruiser She is in good condition having been very well maintained by her single owner. He had her commissioned by Northshore and went on to complete the ARC and spent many years cruising in the Mediterranean. For the last few years, he has been cruising the Channel regularly, mostly single-handed.

The Vancouver 28 is designed for short-handed long distanced cruising. She is a safe, comfortable passage maker easily sailed single or short-handed. The 28 is longer than the 27 and importantly has more headroom at 6ft 2 inches. The interior
has high-quality joinery which gives a warm, comfortable feel throughout. 

She has a well-maintained reliable Yanmar 2GM20  18hp engine and a full set of sails all in good condition which includes a cruising chute and spinnaker. She comes with a wind vane self-steering system as well as a tiller pilot autohelm.

The Vancouver 28 is a perfect offshore cruiser for short-handed long-distance passages. She is afloat in Lymington and can be viewed seven days a week. Please call Howard Ross on 01590 671 381 for more information and to book a viewing.


The Vancouver 28 has three good sea berths, two settee berths in the saloon and a large quarter berth on the starboard side.
