1978 San Juan 28 Sloop Sailboat in North Saanich, British Columbia

Stock #189249

More than 300 San Juan 28s were built after its introduction in 1978. It became one of the most popular boats in the Clark line.

The SJ28 has a sporty look, with a downward sloping sheerline leading aft from a fine entry to a narrow, slightly reversed pinched stern (a la '70s IOR shapes). The cabintop is also nicely raked and beveled, and is raised quite high aft, allowing good light and headroom down below. The high-aspect rig with small main and big foretriangle is also typical of the day.

Don Clark says the 28-footer was designed specifically to compete with the likes of boats manufactured by Ranger, Pearson, and Cal. Looking for the right combination of speed and comfort, he blended a quasi-conventional shape with a performance underbody, and produced a space below that provides 6' 4" of headroom.

"Her design was a takeoff from half-tonners, with a spade rudder, fin keel, and IOR-influenced underbody, but with the stern chopped off," he said.

"She has a tall, powerful rig, 50% ballast ratio, and a beam that is offset by a deep fin keel and powerful, balanced spade rudder.

"She has a conservative rig, but is on the fast side of cruising. She was designed to sail extremely well in light air." (All of the above courtesy of Practical Sailor)

Information On Condition

The owner has all of the maintenance records.

The vessel is in pretty good condition for being 40 years old. Still a highly functional sailer.

Standing and running rigging appear to be in good condition as does the engine.
