Design based on experience

8.45 m length sailboat, with modern exterior lines and wide and sophisticated interiors, M28.5 has re-defined what can be expected from a 28-feet sailing boat, being able to navigate in waters where no other of this kind could.

This fixed-keel version of this sailboat is available for those who do not need a lifting keel system.

This new type provides simplicity and good price, maintaining all the rest of navigation features and the high quality that remarks our boats, for sure.

The mentioned fixed-keel development is offered in two drafts: 1.45 and 1.60 meters. Both come with iron bulb.

M28.5 FX not only guarantees a more competitive price in the 26 to 30-feet sailing boats’ segment, but it also improves the interior comfort, as it contains a more compact table furniture.

We also offer the possibility of granting a closed aft cabin with a new cockpit locker (in both, the fixed and the lifting keel version). This alternative suit a customer segment who prefer to experience more privacy on board.
