Broker Remarks

This Heard 28 is an excellent sailing yacht, she was built in 1995 and is a fantastic introduction to the classics class.
The current owner has owned her for over 10 years. The Heard 28 offers excellent value for money when up against the likes of Cornish Crabbers if you are searching for a classic yacht that is a different approach to sailing then the Heard 28 is certainly worth looking at.
