1978 Southern Cross 28 Bluewater Cutter Sailboat in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts

Stock #131626

This Southern Cross is the ideal pocket cruiser for single handling or a couple with passage making in mind.

Though it is US Coast Guard documented at 27 feet 8 inches, this measure does not include the bow sprit which brings the overall length to 30 feet.

This Thomas Gilmer designed Southern Cross is legendary for passage making having many documented journeys by other boats of the same make/model.

The sail inventory is extensive including older main, genoa and stay sail. Updated with newer Doyle main with stackpack lazy jacks and zipper cover which has been used only one season.

The newer genoa is Furlex roller furled and the inner stay sail is self tailing on a boom.

The helm has a retro fitted wheel replacing the older rudder stick for steering.

There is a dodger forward of the helm over the companionway with isenglass in great condition along with the canvas.

The seller fitted into the hull an Interphase forward reading depth sounder allowing plenty of warning of approaching shallow water or shoals. The transducer is located forward of the keel.

Included with the boat is a gimbaled stove/oven which has been removed presently for increased storage. In place of this is a gimbaled single burner propane unit mounted to the bulkhead forward in the main cabin. He places a clay pot over this for radiant heat when needed.

Below deck the woodwork shows a nice shine with no signs of any rot. No mildew was detected and there are no head smells.

Sleeping accommodations include a double forward vee berth, a single aft quarter berth to starboard and a settee that converts to a double in the main stateroom.

The head is located between the stateroom and the forward berth and includes a marine toilet, sink and shower.

The galley is on the port side at the bottom of the companionway and includes large ice box, sink and gimbaled oven/stove.
