"DESIGNER'S COMMENTS: The hull form of this design is conductive to performance and comfort. It's broad beam makes for a very versatile deck area and a spacious interior. The broad beam in no way hampers her sailing ability. The standard waterline beam of 8' is so shaped that the water "sees" this even at angles of heel. The beam only leads stability, hence power to carry sail. The shape of the aft sections makes her very tame and lets the boat be sailed in virtually a "hands off the wheel" manner. Owners are constantly amazed at her performance and seaworthiness in light or heavy winds. Dual Cabin: The dual cabin plan offers an amazingly large interior. Inspect the individual areas and compare them to any other yacht and you'll find the Caliber 28 is unsurpassed. The U-shaped galley area affords plenty of counter space and features an overhead cabinet, utensil drawer, and three lockers to utilize all available storage. The private head is enclosed by a solid teak door, with roominess unheard of in a yacht this size. A pressurized shower is standard and storage space maximized. The main salon features two full sized settee berths with storage above, behind, and below each one. The starboard settee converts to a double berth. The centerline table is structured to withstand bracing loads. The V-berth cabin features full standing headroom with storage space above the double berth and below in drawers and lockers. Two solid sliding doors insure your privacy in this area."


From the large cockpit you can maneuver easily around the side decks.  Port and starboard boarding gates make boarding easy.  From the cockpit and down the companionway steps you enter the main cabin.  To port is the “U” shaped galley area with ample countertop spaces and storage.  There is a built in 12 volt refrigerator/freezer, alcohol stove, and stainless steel sink.  To starboard is the head complete with shower.  The salon features port and starboard settees and a centered salon table with two folding leafs allowing easy dining for four.  Outboard of the settees are storage shelves and lockers.  All the way forward is the V-berth with filler cushion.  The berth offer excellent storage of clothing and personal gear.  With opening ports and overhead hatches, ventilation is excellent


The galley is large for a 28 foot boat and is “U” shaped. Plenty of storage and countertop spaces for food preparation that will certainly please the onboard chef.
