You’re Not Supposed to Have This Much Room on board a 28 footer!

Well Marex obviously didn’t get the memo when designing this 280 Holiday.

With a total of 5 berths in 2 completely private cabins at either end of the boat, as well as a spacious cockpit, large galley and enclosed heads, the most amazing thing about all the space on this boat is that the whole thing doesn’t end up looking like a floating caravan. She really is a sleek boat, with a nicely proportioned hard top and very tidy covers over the aft end of the cockpit. It’s confirmation again that the Scandinavians really know what they’re doing when it comes to designing practical boats that excel in our Northern European climate.

To find out more about the condition and equipment on this beautiful boat just confirm your details in the form below to get Free VIP access to this site and watch our full length video of this boat.

In the full length video you will see for yourself :

  • How the designers have easily accommodated sleeping berths for 5 in 2 separate cabins in this 29ft hull.
  • The mechanical condition of this boat and how easy it is to maintain the frugal Yanmar 140HP Diesel engine, with only 333hrs on the clock.
  • How this boat is extremely well equipped for serious coastal cruising, even though she has spent the vast majority of her life in fresh water.
  • That this boat has virtually every factory option fitted, from bow thruster and trim tabs to heating and transom shower.
  • That given the history and condition of the boat, she has to be hands-down the best value example around.
