Main Cabin

Macwester Atlanta 28 - Details

Designed by C S J Roy and Built by Atlanta Marine, this is a rare encapsulated fin keel version.

Bought at the London Boat Show in 1977 she has been extensively sailed on the West Coast of Scotland ever since.

The first owner sailed her with family for twenty seven years and the current owners have sailed to Rhum, Canna, Skye, Jura, Islay, Gigha and the Caledonian Canal.

A strong seaworthy boat she is now in need of refurbishment and is priced accordingly. She would make a good cruising boat for a couple.

She is currently in storage out of the water at the boatyard and it was not possible to take interior photos. We will return as soon as possible to take them.
