Boat was originally purchased from Integrity Marine in Margate, New Jersey fall of 2007. Integrity is the principal distributor of Henriques boats. We are the second owner.
When purchased the boat it had about 1000 hours on it. It now has 1650 total hours.
Port side motor was completely overhauled in 2011 - all original Volvo parts were used and the work was performed by a Volvo mechanic. Both engines run great. AirSep air filtration system was added to both engines in the spring of 2012. Fuel economy and performance were noticeably enhanced. She cruises at 22 knots, with a combined fuel burn of only 12.5 GPH.
Many items have been upgraded over standard Henriques package for a 28 Express: Electronics upgraded to Raymarine C120 (has back-up Northstar 952). B64 AirMar 1KW flush thru-hull transducer added. 6 person Revere inflatable life raft added. ICOM 504 radio added. New, larger Ritchie compass. All the lights (inside and out) have been converted to LED. Underwater lights have been added (the attached pic shows some as red - they are all now blue). Rear deck lights have been added. A center rigger has been added. Cabin floor is custom teak and holly. Detachable swim ladder added. We also have the kit, although not installed as of yet, for automatic leveling of the trim tabs.
Three new AGM batteries were installed in 2011. ¾ of the isinglass was replaced in 2012. A new refrigerator was added in 2012. New CD/Stereo was added in 2010 - both interior and exterior speakers were upgraded in 2012. The Furuno radar unit was sent out to Furuno, mid-summer 2012, and was refurbished.
Cutlass bearings were replaced in 2011. Prop shafts were balanced and props were professionally cleaned and balanced in that same year. Trim tab pistons were replaced in 2011. Bottom is sanded and painted each year. One of the owners is the Director of Port Supply for West Marine, Newport RI. The other is a former instructor at the US Merchant Marine Academy GMATS Program. Anything the boat has ever needed we have typically replaced with an upgraded part. Boat would be sold with a full Coast Guard safety package and also include fenders, shore power cord, and custom canvas cover. Boat would be turn-key. Nothing needed.
