Broker Remarks

Cantia 28 for sale. SANDPIPER is an absolutely lovely example of this attractive and clever design, and one of only ten built. From 2012, she is based upon the Kent 28, and is fitted with a Volvo D2 75hp diesel, with relatively few engine hours. She is quiet and very economical, and wonderfully in no hurry, with a pleasant 7 knots cruising speed.

She has very well thought through interior features and space, and punches well above her weight in terms of provisions and extraordinary storage space.

SANDPIPER is a delightful small ship, built to an incredibly high standard, that will be a perfect cruiser for a couple who love being at sea, and the slow life, and maybe drying out on the tide from time to time.  Perhaps even the continental canals are beckoning…
