GulfStream 28X

We kept the standard GS28 plans as simple as possible: one hull material, simple hull shape, one layout and one type of motorization. We present a number of options as a separate plan under the name GS28X.

In addition to all the features present in the standard GS28, the X version offers the following options:

  • hull material: plywood cored epoxy or foam sandwich
  • hull shape variations: flared bow, closed transom for bracket, rounded transom for stern-drive, optional skeg keel for the stern-drive version
  • propulsion: outboards with or without bracket, stern-drive, inboard, gas or diesel.
  • layouts: open cockpit or forward cabin ("jump cabin").

Besides those options and the small changes in hull shape above the waterline, the GS28X is the same boat as the GS28: a moderate vee, relatively narrow boat (beam/length ratio of 3.4) designed to satisfy a program in which economy and seaworthiness were top priorities.
