The Aquafish 28 is an ideal boat for either fishing or coastal cruising, offering a spacious cockpit, comfortable wheelhouse and separate heads and sleeping areas. This excellent example is fitted with the very rare and desirable twin shaft drive option for improved reliability and reduced running costs. Significantly more solid and stable than most similar modern sports fishers they are best compared to commercial fishing vessels and she could easily be used for this.
