For sale is a STUART KNOCKABOUT 28 Daysailer in very well maintained condition
L. Francis Herreshoff created this design in 1932 at the request of a client desiring a large shallow draft daysailer incorporating ease of handling, excitement of speed, and capacity and comfort for crew. The result was a joy to single-hand or sail with friends for either uncompromising leisure or spirited competition.
This boat is a descendant in a long line of great Herreshoff creations. In this case, L. Francis succeeded admirably in utilizing all his earlier experience and familiarity with his father's great designs, advancing them with his own independent genius and artistry. What evolved is his own pure creation, and an exceptional daysailer.
The Stuart Knockabout 28 is a splendid example of her pedigree. She is exceptionally fast and, therefore, a joy to sail. She also has surprising power, considering her modest sail plan, and is not slowed perceptibly by an oncoming sea. She is comfortable and forgiving, and with every unnecessary piece of complicated gear absent, what is left is an uncluttered, simple, easily handled thoroughbred.
Her moderate rig, light helm, open cockpit and uncluttered deck enable easy handling, yet her long sweeping hull design exhibits surprising speed and agility in a variety of wind conditions.
The foam cored fiberglass hull construction is light and durable, her varnished teak trim is eye catching and compliments the elegance and simplicity of her lines.
This particular boat is equiped with a 2013 Electric TORQEEDO Outboard Enigine mounted at the stern.
