"Wind Song" is a beautiful factory-finished world class bluewater cruiser in turnkey condition. She was repowered in 2011 with a Beta Diesel, equipped with newer sails and rigging (2016) and is ready to cruise with a new Garmin Radar and Chartplotter/GPS system. She has been well maintained (detailed records are available) and she comes with a dinghy and motor.
Her roller furling cutter rig with Lazy Jacks makes her an easily handled cruiser or single hander and her Tanbark sails set her apart as a true classic. She is tiller steered and was built by C.E. Ryder in Newport, RI and designed by Thomas Gillmer specifically with ocean cruising and crossings in mind. She represents a true value in an offshore capable cruiser and you won't find a cleaner, well equipped 28.
