2003 Kent 28 for sale. 'Kitty' is a beautiful example of this delightful Motor Yacht built along traditional lines and offering comfortable and spacious accommodation,not often found in a boat of this size! The Kent 28 is an economical cruiser which is equally at home on the river or coastal waters.
The Kent 28 is a development from the extremely popular KENT 27. The Kent 28 is the most popular model in the range. It is fitted with a range of engines from 40hp to 190hp, depending on the needs of the owner - from cruising rivers and estuaries to open sea passages (the Kent 28 is CE Category B). The standard specification includes shorepower with a battery charger, pressurised hot and cold water, three batteries and many, many other items. The options list includes a range of engines and one or two larger items such as a bow-thruster and windlass. A hand built teak interior gives a warm and traditional feel.
There are three living areas. First, the forward cabin, which sleeps two (twin or double berth arrangements). Next, the wheelhouse, the main living area, with the helmsman's position, saloon seating, galley, table and occasional sleeping. Between the forward cabin and the wheelhouse are the heads compartment with shower and a large wardrobe. The last living area is the cockpit. With full-width folding teak doors, this area can be used as an extension of the saloon. With the optional canopy (hard-top or canvas) and canvas screens, is can also be used like a conservatory. Alternatively, with an open cockpit there is plenty of room for fishing and enjoying the sunshine.
