Very well maintained and cared for.  I have owned it since 1997.

Survey in the spring of 2019 was done in and out of the water.

I have purchased another boat so this one will come out in October.

At 28" L.O.A. and with a 24" waterline, Sirius 28 is an extremely roomy 5 berth performance cruiser, with 6'3" standing headroom. She's a stiff yacht with almost 40% ballast to displacement ratio and a high freeboard that keep her dry and the crew comfortable.

Below, there is lots of usable space. Within her 9'8" beam there is a head on the port aft and a galley on the starboard aft. There is a large dinette with ample room for crew and guests. The U-shaped galley comes complete with stove, icebox, stainless steel sink, and alcohol stove. The 5 bunks are all comfortable with 4" cushions and each is 6'6" long. Even closer inspection below will show a chart table, a wet locker, the warmth of natural teak, and lots of ventilation. There are 6 opening ports in the main cabin and 2 more in the forward cabin, all equipped with screens.
