DRAGONFLY 28 PER­FOR­MANCE

Soundings - - Classics -

Though the Scan­di­na­vian-built Dragonfly 28 has been around for a while, the builder’s Per­for­mance model is rel­a­tively new, with wavepierc­ing amas that are al­most 2 feet longer and that have 20 per­cent more vol­ume. The amas en­hance per­for­mance over 14 knots.

Be­low, all the way for­ward, is a V-berth. An open head and sink are abaft it, as is a star­board stowage locker. A flip-up ta­ble with two set­tees splits the saloon on cen­ter­line. The gal­ley bor­ders ei­ther side of the com­pan­ion­way and has a two-burner stove, stowage cab­i­netry and a sink.

The open-tran­som cock­pit has room for four to six crew, with tram­po­line nets be­tween the main hull and the amas (for plac­ing ex­tra folks out to wind­ward). All sheets and sail con­trols are lead neatly aft and are within reach of the cock­pit crew. A 9.9-hp 4-stroke kicker is an op­tion.
