Description: Very lightly used late-model Sabre 28 with wheel steering. "Weatherly" has been day-sailed from Fair Haven Yacht Works (FHYW) on the Navesink River in NJ(***see below***) by our family for 16 years, but aging patriarch is ready to let her go. Update the instruments and cushions and spruce up the cabin brightwork and you'll have a bristol classic.

The asking price reflects complete rebuild of the 2 cylinder Westerbeke diesel, performed by Westerbeke distributors Hansen Marine of Marblehead, MA in 2014. Engine is basically brand new and starts first try, every time! Extremely reliable and runs as smoothly as any two-banger can.

Maintenance and projects performed by FHYW professionals over the years includes:
* Annual bottom paint and topsides polish
* Keel dropped, bolts inspected, and rebedded
* Mast step and support rebuilt and reinforced
* New Raymarine depth sounder
* Biannual topside brightwork refinishing with Cetol Gloss
* Steering system overhaul (control cables and chain replaced, parts lubricated, etc)
* Icebox pump replacement
* Annual winterizing and spring commissioning

Mainsail and furling 170 are in good cruising shape. Eggers Sailmakers removed the Dutchman system and performed general sail service in the past. Several other sails came to us with the boat, but were never used. The previous owner did some club racing including spinnaker, so it is capable with the addition of a spin pole and running gear. Will have to check storage for sails available.

*** We will do spring commissioning and deliver anywhere from Chesapeake to southern New England for the right offer.***

Price is negotiable.

Equipment: * Self-tailing winches
* Forespar whisker pole
* Origo two-burner non-pressurized alcohol stove
* Magma propane grill
* Pressurized cockpit shower
* Transom swim ladder
* VHF radio
* Full cockpit cushions
* Original paperwork and manuals
* Standard USCG safety equipment: life jackets, flares, etc.
* Brand new Edson binnacle-mounted folding teak cockpit table

Small fiberglass dinghy with oars and launching wheels included (not pictured).
