The 30' 5" (9.3 m) LOA Nord Star 28 Patrol is designed for folks wanting to cruise in a wide range of sea and weather conditions, not all of them friendly. With her secure pilothouse, ocean-worthy hull, rugged construction and Scandinavian heritage, the 28 Patrol should be a capable pocket-sized yacht, one suited for coastwise service in almost any weather. (Need proof? Many 28 Patrols work as water taxis in Greenland.) CE-certified for Category B, Offshore, the Finnish-built, Baltic-tested 28 Patrol rides on an 18-degree deadrise modified-V hull that balances seaworthiness, speed and comfort. She sleeps 4 in single berths in two cabins; both can be converted to doubles with filler cushions. While the Nord Star 28 Patrol isn't for everybody – folks looking for luxury need not apply -- boatmen and -women who enjoy exploring off the beaten path might find her an ideal pocket-sized cruising yacht, and one that will extend their boating season, too.
