The LM 28 is a typically well built Scandinavian motor sailer with surprisingly good sailing characteristics thanks to her sailing focused hull design, making for a great alternative to the Fisher 30 or Westerly Konsort Duo as well as many others. Offering the practicality of a wheelhouse combined with a spacious cockpit, dual steering positions and versatile interior space they really are an excellent choice and were highly praised by the yachting press. 'Walkabout' is a sought after twin keel version allowing her to take the ground if desired, and has been well maintained and continually upgraded. Her impressive spec includes a new engine and saildrive in 2009, diesel heating, plotter, autopilot and epoxy coating in 2014, early viewing is highly recommended!
