Herreshoff classic in excellent condition with new engine, rig and sails. Designed specifically for safe & comfortable sailing and still very popular, H28s are a good choice for new sailors. These amazingly strong yachts have sailed across oceans and several have circumnavigated the globe. While some variations carry a sloop rig, Kan Walker's ketch is true to the original ketch configuration and retains the very pretty sheerline that makes these boats irresistable to the eye.
There are always a number of H28s on the market but there are not many in this condition and with virtually nothing to spend, "Moonbow" is well worth an inspection.
