I took all the pictures of this beautiful, 2 owner, 1982 Southern Cross 28. The current owner is the 2nd, he has too many boats and is downsizing. He has had the boat for 9 years. This boat is solid with no soft spots and sails great in all conditions. The previous owner has sailed to Nova Scotia to Cuba multiple times in this boat so she has some history.
The vessel is powered by a 3 cylinder Westerbeke with 17 hp and an estimated 7000 hours. The original powerplant was an 11 hp Univeral, the seller isn't aware of the year of the engine or when it was installed but he says it runs great and there is a lot of recent upgrades to it I highlighted in the Condition report below.
The cockpit is good size for a 30' boat, with lots of storage too. She has the classic lines of a Southern Cross with the rounded aft portion.
The cabin is good size, headroom is tight it's 5'10" in the main salon, and gets shorter as you move forward. The head area can be closed off from the salon and the V berth is all the way forward.
For sails, you have 1 mainsail with 2 reef points, 1 150% foresail, and an additional 135% foresail. The running rigging has all be replaced and the standing rigging looks to be in good condition. The bottom paint is 6 months old and is scrubbed every 2 weeks.
Contact me today for more information or a showing at your request. All offers kindly considered.
Overall the boat is in good condition inside and out. The boat is solid with no soft spots noticed.
The engine was completely gone through 2 months ago and anything that needed fixing was fixed. The head, cushions, motor mounts, cutlass bearing, shaft alignment, running rigging, wiring ($2k worth), fuel lines, fuel pump, and batteries are all new within the past 2 years.
The mechanical portion of the wheel auto-pilot was also recently replaced.
The hour meter doesn't work, the depth finder has a transducer but needs wiring and display.
If you're in the market for this type of boat come take a look for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
