Mariner 28

Hello All,

I have been introduced to a fellow who has a few boats and needs to sell this one. It is a 1979 Mariner 28 and apparently has been well looked after and updated.
The fellow is sending some information today and I hope some pictures as well. I do plan on making the 4 hour trip next week to view. While I was searching on line I found very little information available.

Does anyone know where this information could be please.

Cheers,

Re: Mariner 28

A Mariner 31 has been in our club for over 20 years - three owners. Does need lots of maintenance due to wooden masts, canvas covered wooden cabin,etc. Definitely on the cruising end of the spectrum and a dog in light air. Not my cup of tea.

Re: Mariner 28

Different companies. The clipper bowed Mariners came from Japan IIRC.

The 28 is an American build. Don't know about its quality though.

Re: Mariner 28

I have owned a 19798 Mariner 28 (Hull#110) going on 9 years. I found it abandoned in a boat yard and have restored it. I have found the quality and construction excellent. The hull is made from hand laminated fiberglas and is very thick. Very common for the era. The deck is in great shape. I put on new sails two years ago. I reduced the headsail from a 150 to 135 just to provide more visibility while under sail

The teak interior is also very attractive. I still have the original Yanmar engine and it runs fine.

I love the boat.

If I had any negative comments it would be the fact I have to start reducing sail between 12-15 knots of wind. I have the fin keel version of this model and when heeled over most of the rudder is out of the water and the boat becomes unbalanced and rounds up. I start by letting out on the main, then reducing the headsail, then furling the headsail completely, then reefing the main. I don't reef until 22+ knots.

Last year I redid the bottom. Soda blasted all the paint off, did moisture testing then applied 6 coats of moisture barrier, coat of hard, then 2 coats of ablative. This year I just applied a single coat of ablative.
