Santana 28 Cruising Yacht
$34,000 NOW REDUCED
The Santana 28 is a winner on all counts... Pretty to the eye, a delight to sail, safe and comfortable. The great designer Gary Mull achieved a certain timelessness with this one. Ahead of her time, “Santana” (her name) is beamy with a spacious cockpit (not a pinched little cockpit so typical of the time). She has a shallow draft fin keel and wheel steering. Under the care (and skill) of her retired shipwright owner, she has been made new again. Apart from cleaning, varnishing and refinishing “Santana” has undergone a major refit which included a new engine, shaft, prop, cabin windows, standing and running rigging, headsail-furler, boom bag and more.
