Perfect Size Used Boat
There are two Newport 28 and one 30 at our club (Barrachois Harbour Yacht Club). Check out the site at www.angelfire.com/ns/BarrachoisYachtClub/index.html . In the members listing A-L two of these three boats have owners emails listed.
The boats are Perigrine (N28), All Set (N28) and Nuada (N30 mark II ??).
I have been on board all three and there is definitely a lot of room and nice layouts on them. The 28 is not as speedy as other boats of similar size but these are nicely outfitted boats. Jeff H will probably have a lot of information about the sailing characteristics and construction qualities which should be a determining factor. I know I do like the interiors!
Not sure if these models are available under $20K.
Good luck! It is definitely addictive.
PS. If you start looking for a boat at $20K you will probably end up spending 25-30. Be careful.
