This is a very tidy example of the now-classic Sunseeker Offshore 28. The hull is a race-proven design by the legendary Don Shead, and she also offers very spacious accommodation for her size. She has had many thousands spent on her in the last few years, including new engines and drives, a professional repaint, and a full interior retrim, and has bills to prove it in excess of £30K. She must be one of the best examples available of her type, and is an ideal entry into the hallowed halls of Sunseeker ownership.
