Re: Liberty 28

No this one is in St Augustine, Fl and is named Grace. May have been there in her history? Was she a good boat??

I was looking for a Liberty 28 in 2009 and saw one in Long Island and was contemplating a visit to Grace, but she was too far from where I am to bring it here.
For Grace I have some pictures and a 2008 survey report if that serves any purpose...

Re: Liberty 28

Liberty 28's are great small cruising boats. They do have a full keel and a short waterline, so know what you are getting in to, but they are also very solid and well built from what I can tell.

I think they would be a little cramped for a cruising couple, but perfect for a solo sailor. If you can't find/can't afford a BCC, a Liberty 28 would be an excellent choice in the same class of boat.

I'm friends with a guy that is selling one of the Liberty 28's in Melbourne. It's a great boat. He's done some stuff to it and his work is top notch.
