This wonderful Morris Linda 28 has been used lightly during the summers in Maine, stored inside and cared for by high quality service yards since 2011. The Linda's sailing characteristics are continually praised by their owners. A full keel with cutaway forefoot gives both a stable ride and great maneuverability. The surprisingly large cabin sleeps 3-4 in comfort with a small galley and full head. As hull #1 in the Linda line, Rising Star was prominently featured in the September 1985 edition of Sailing Magazine; in Ferenc Mate's 1986 book "The World's Best Sailboats"; and in Chuck Paine's 2010 book "My Yacht Designs".
