Surprise surprise!

1983 Davidson 28, ‘Kayanna’


This Davidson 28 is a very well equipped cruising yacht with so many delightful surprises everywhere you look.

The original owner had her for 40 years. She was bought primarily for the marina she was on and now is being passed on at a realistic price. She will delight you at every turn from the original certificates mounted on the wall to the ambience of her cosy saloon all included with the Davidson reputation for sure footed sailing.  

She has solid grp hull, decks and saloon. The roomy interior with a unique layout maximises space and accommodation. In the saloon the galley occupies the starboard side and offers plenty of bench space and some unique features like extending bread boards. Be quick, at this price she will sell to the first serious buyer.
