Pied Piper 28 sailboat - anyone know anything about them?

Came across one in Florida for sale - they were made in North Carolina I believe - cut away full keel - attached rudder, inboard diesel, but perplexed - the ones I have seen have a straight forward cabin top - this one has more of a dog house - standing headroom under it and I am 6'2" - can't find any pictures of anything similar - it is supposedly an '86 - have a feeling it is an older model.

Re: Pied Piper 28 sailboat - anyone know anything about them?

looks like there were two outfits called Liberty yachts, one of which built the Pied Piper. Wonder if you're looking at the real one?
