||The RL28 designed by Rob Legg on Queensland's
Gold Coast is the 'Maxi' of trailable yachts with 6 feet of headroom and six berths,.
It features a hydraulically operated swing keel which is ideal for its home waters which are
shallow with numerous sand banks and the 16 inch minimum draft enables the RL28 to be
beached. But it is equally at home cruising the Great Barrier Reef where the shallow draft
allows the craft in to explore the inlets
|Many have undertaken long voyages .. One has
sailed from Cairns to Port Moresby, then on to Lae. Another has sailed from Tweed Heads to
Indonesia and back to Darwin and several have sailed at least half way around Australia
and, although not designed to undertake trips of such magnitude, their rugged construction
and comfortable accommodation, with full headroom, leaves little to be desired in family
||Internally the RL28 is built for comfort with
a galley with stove, sink, generous ice box and ample fresh water storage, a folding teak
dining table on top of the keel case and is fully carpeted.
To enhance the extended
cruising ability of the yacht, there are 19 separate storage compartments, shower, toilet
and wash basin, and a hanging wet locker.
