“Silver Lining” is a great boat that started its life as the builder’s boat show boat and was purchased by the owner in 2012 and splashed in 2013. It's great to see an owner that understands what it means to maintain a boat in a proper manner. All upgrades are top of the line
The owners is selling boat to move up to a bigger boat as they firm up their retirement plans
Royal Lowell’s Nauset 28 is an unmistakably Down East boat with traditional lines. The trunk cabin forward gives way to the large wraparound, open-ended wheelhouse, and the tall bow is surrounded by an ample rail that extends along the graceful sheer to the cockpit. She rides a traditional modified-vee hull powered by a single diesel with 315 hp.
In the Hardtop Cruiser, the helm station is placed to starboard behind a large, three-panel windscreen. It comes with a pedestal helm seat, a destroyer wheel and a large molded console for instruments and electronics. The side windows open for lots of fresh air
The U-shaped galley-down amidships is furnished with a stainless steel sink, a cook top, a compact refrigerator, and counter and shelf storage. The enclosed head compartment is to port and is equipped with a marine head, sink and integral shower.
AN OWNERS VIEW
There were some practical features that appealed to him as a cruiser, such as engine access. “The entire cabin sole will come up, so access to everything in the engine space is excellent,”
The boat also is quiet. “The engine space is very well insulated, and, unusual in a 28-footer, [it has] a well-designed underwater exhaust,” the experienced cruiser reports. “Under way at 12 knots, you can carry on a normal conversation in the cabin.”
The deck layout is safe and functional. “The side decks are wide for the boat’s size, making it easy to walk fore and aft,” “The bow rail extends aft to the trailing edge of the deckhouse, and the hand rails and handholds are well-positioned. The cockpit is [large] enough that I can inflate our 9-foot dinghy and then slide it over the side.”
Another plus is vertical clearance. “The boat is a hardtop with no flying bridge and no tall mast,” “With our antennas folded down, we can easily clear a 10-foot bridge.”
Power comes from a 315-hp Yanmar 6LPA-STP, a 6-cylinder, 4-stroke diesel. The Nauset 28 cruises at 13 to 14 mph at 2700 rpm, Top cruising speed is about 21 knots, running at 3,600 rpm. “
