The Vega is 27', not 28. While there may be a saildrive in one or two, the period when the boat was constructed was before the introduction of the saildrive, and that's a good thing. Original engine was a gas or diesel with a variable pitch prop. Excellent sailer, several have circumnavigated and many have crossed oceans.
