SORRY, NOW SOLD!
Viking 28 for Sale - A Great Day Sailing Boat
Located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
The Viking 28 is well known for its ability to handle heavy wind and waves yet sails extremely well in light breezes, making it a great first boat for anyone wanting to get into the sport of sailing or those getting into club racing.
The long cockpit makes it ideal for entertaining at the dock or taking your friends out on the water. It sails like a dinghy but you don’t get wet.
It is equipped with a Yanmar 1GM10 diesel inboard engine. The engine was replaced two years ago with a lightly used one which was refreshed and installed by a master diesel mechanic. It runs perfectly and starts in one second. The fuel tank and system were refreshed four years ago.
The engine drives a Gori 2 blade folding propeller (important to club racers and when sailing in very light winds).
Sails: 1 main and 153% Genoa & 90% jibs along with a nylon spinnaker and its rigging. All lines lead aft to 2 winches and jammers on the cabin top.
4 winches in the cockpit for Jib and Spinnaker with two winch handles. Adjustable back stay tension.
Instruments include new compass, speed and depth gauges. Wind speed and Apparent Wind gauges with mast top anemometer are present but need rewiring. VHF Radio.
Harnesses, Bosuns chair, Lifejackets, and Life ring.
Anchor with chain rode and line.
Two batteries with make-before-break switch. Electric Bilge Pump.
Port-a-potti (new three years ago but never used).
Other miscellaneous equipment such as a power polisher.
Custom cradle by Marine Cradle Shop, new in Fall 2014.
Why am I selling? It’s not the boat. Arthritis and some errant spinal discs prevent full enjoyment of sailing.Asking $6,000
Boat is located at the base of the beautiful Scarborough Bluffs (Brimley and Kingston Roads) at Cathedral Bluffs Yacht Club in slip E05.
Slip is available to a new member.
