Blue Moon is her name. She is a 2005 Legacy 28 foot inboard express cruiser. Powered by a 310 hp Volvo Penta D6 diesel with only 360 hours. Equipped with a Volvo QL Bow Thruster and Volvo EVC electronic control, this maneuverable Down-Easter is a true coastal craft. The Legacy hull design has a deep vee entry at the bow and flattens out to a five 5 degree dead-rise at the stern. A semi keel aids in steering stability and dampens roll, yet she draws only 2 feet.

3.  Tridata speed/depth gauge

4.  Raymarine chart plotter/sonar/fishfinder

15. Seastar hydraulic steering

16. Power center window

17. Hot and cold shower

18. Cockpit table - Teak

19. Swimming ladder

20. Cooling system flush valve

21. Full-featured West Marine 650 VHF(replacement)

22. New Genius Gen2 20 Amp battery charger (replacement)


In the last 6 months the owner has invested over $13,000 to upgrade the Legacy. The previous tent-style canvas cabin top has been replaced by a custom-designed Birdsall half tower. The front and side cabin enclosure is 100% top-grade clear vinyl with multiple zippered air scoops allowing for a 360 degree sight-line and thru-cabin air flow. The hull has been redone in Flag Blue Awlgrip. After all this, the 80-year old owner has decided to downgrade to a day-cruiser and turn in his charts. Someone will benefit; this is a one-of-a-kind.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Legacy 28 features an abbreviated keel that allows for good tracking, a modified-V entry that takes the bang out of the seas, and flat aft section that gives the boat stability and easy planing. The standard 250-horsepower engine is capable of powering the boat to 27 knots. Even with a powerful engine, the 28 is quiet, with low-vibration, and virtually free of exhaust fumes. An oversized, pot-style muffler also keeps the sound down and an underwater exhaust system eliminates diesel fumes underway. The engine has been installed on flexible rubber mounts which are situated on high-density foam stringers. Seating on the bridgedeck and cockpit accommodates nine easily. The copilot seat to port is tall with visibility equal to that of the helmsman. Other standard features include an opening center windshield, recessed trim tabs, flush-mounted hardware, secure bow rails, and hydraulic steering. Storage is abundant with under-berth stowage, a hanging locker, and storage below all the bench seats. The cabin features six feet of headroom and is finished in cherry joinery and teak sole. Four opening ports and an overhead hatch allow plenty of light and air. Other features include a refrigerator, a two-burner stove, an enclosed head with room for a morning shower, and a choice of design packages with options for countertops, bulkheads, and upholstery.
