Built by Capitol Yachts and designed by the C&C Design Team, the Newport 28 is classified as a cruiser racer. She has a modern underbody, fin keel and a spade rudder and she is an outstanding sailing boat. Her headroom is 6’2” and while there were three different interior configurations for this model offered by the manufacture, this modified interior includes a port aft galley w/side opening refrigeration/freezer. A bulkhead table folds down when not in use.  She has a private head and a quarter berth. The boat is laid out perfectly for a couple. On deck she has a self-bailing cockpit and tiller steering on a SS rudder post.  Her mainsheet is mounted mid-boom which keeps the cockpit clear.  The electric inboard has replaced the original OMC Sail Drive. It is very quiet and pushes the boat over 5 kts. and has lots of power even at low speeds. The owner has had good luck with it. This boat is clean. The owner moved away and decided to sell.  This boat is fresh water only and has only been used on the Mississippi River (MN), St. Croix River (WI/MN), Lake of the Woods Ontario/MN & Lake Superior over the years with various owners.
