Southern Cross 28

The Southern Cross 28 was designed and built as an offshore cruising boat, capable of extended passages in all weather. Many sisterships have cruised extensively (including circumnavigation), providing their owners with a manageable, economical vessel of exceptional structural integrity and ability. This cruiser has a canoe stern, modified full keel with an inboard skeg mounted rudder.

"Princess Kalola" is a factory finished boat with minimal systems and few opportunities for failure. She has spent her whole life in California and only moved to Louisiana in 2013. She is sailboat recommended for sailors on a limited budget with serious cruising plans. We hate to sell but current health issues have priority. Current Survey Report (2013) available upon request.

She was hauled out in April of 2013 and the bottom and nonskid were painted and the zincs changed. The Hull is heavily built with no blisters. She has all the basic amenities; stove, ice box and hand pump water pressure. There are 2 manual and 1 12V bilge pump. She has a very protected cockpit, tiller steering with an emergency tiller. She is cutter rigged with main, jib and staysail but can be easily sailed sloop rigged. The forward ground tackle is 90' of chain with 300' of rode attached to a 35lb CQR anchor and the aft tackle is 50’ chain with 150’ rode attached to a 20lb Danforth anchor. Electronics are basic with a Ritchie compass, Garmin GPS, depth sounder and AIS. This boat has tanks for 50 gallons of water and 15 gallons of diesel fuel. The layout down below is practical & comfortable with a large Salon (new red upholstery), fold down table, and galley area. Going forward is the head, hanging locker and entrance to a large cozy V berth. If you decide to anchor out, there’s a new dingy and outboard for travel to shore.

  • Beta 16hp Diesel w/V-Drive transmission (right hand drive), control panel w/wiring harness, shift linkage, prop shaft, 3-blade prop, waterlock muffler and shifter
