Laser 28, 1985

  • Grove, OK, price of $10,000.

    1985 Laser 28, fractional rig, inboard.

  • This is a club racer’s dream as it has spent its entire life on a Hydro Hoist and has never been in the water more than three days at a time.
  • But if you don’t race, it is a week-end day sailor’s revelation.
  • It is fast, responsive and comfortable to sail with a large cockpit, well designed equipment layout and 5’10” head room.
  • Fractional rig means smaller, easier to trim headsails and the mainsheet is 4:1 with a split end that doubles the purchase.
  • And you don’t have to be an expert sailor to do well in PHRF racing as it can be sailed to its handicap by enthusiastic, but average sailors.

    Here is a much abbreviated list of its features:

  • Designed by Bruce Farr, famous for many great boats starting in the 80’s.
