Remarks:

Combining the grace and beauty of a traditional Broads yacht with the practicality of a GRP hull and a diesel engine, the Easticks 28 is a deservedly popular cruiser/racer. This example, which is somewhat unusual in having a Bermudan rig, has a successful racing record to her credit, but is easily managed by two when cruising. With four berths and a huge cockpit, she is extremely spacious and therefore ideal for family use. Purchased by the current owner in 2019, she has been well maintained by current and former owners, and is now looking for a new custodian as the vendor wishes to spend more time dinghy racing.

Whilst still currently being enjoyed and raced on a regular basis (2022 season), this yacht is seriously for sale and offers will be considered.
