General Description

LM28 For Sale. The LM 28 is a typically well built Scandinavian Motor Sailer with very good sailing characteristics thanks to her sailing focused hull design. She is a Fin keel option and extremely well constructed vessel, beautifully finished throughout and in excellent condition. LM started life as a furniture factory and this is clearly evident in the high quality of the cabinet work and fitting out of their yachts. The accommodation far exceeds that you would expect from a yacht of this size and has been extremely cleverly designed to be comfortable whether at sea or in harbour. Offering the practicality of a Wheelhouse combined with a spacious cockpit, which includes a foldout table able to seat 6, Dual steering positions and a very versatile and comfortable interior space. The Wheelhouse can be separated from the Cockpit to provide a weatherproof environment by the use of a half glazed door that cleverly lowers out of sight into the cockpit floor. The LM28 is easily single handed, ideal for two and will sleep 6 if necessary. Although a motor-sailer, she is designed to sail.In 1986 “ Practical Boat Owner “ reviewed the design, saying ….”as a sailing boat she is faultless“ and “ under power she is completely obedient, able to manoeuvre with very little way and unaffected by wind direction. “The Canoe stern also provides her with excellent bad weather handling.

KIMENA is in exceptional condition benefitting from all previous owners lavishing attention on looking after her and professionally maintaining her to keep in top condition. The Saildrive was checked and serviced in October 2018 with new Twin Diaphragm seals fitted. The Bukh engine was fully checked and serviced at the same time. She has been on Hard standing since October 2019 where she was professionally anti-fouled, new anodes fitted, and the hull and topsides waxed and polished. She has just been relaunched at Darthaven Marina March 2020.
