I''ve been checking out a Newport 28 myself. You can find the thread on this same message board. It seems the info. I''m getting indicates a somewhat lower overall quality than a Catalina. But, what concerns me more is its tenderness. It tends to heel early. But, on th possitive side, they are a lot les expensive to pick up then a Catalina and appear to have great light air performance.
Hope that helps!
