  • New owner

    Hi everyone. I'm the new owner of a 1986 Glasply L2969 (not sure why it's called a 28 because it much bigger than that). I bought it in Juneau and the owner told me it was brought up from CA at some point. It has the name Cruz N2 painted on the flybridge. If anyone knows some history about this boat feel free to reply to me. I'm really excited to be a part of the family here. My wife and I are upgrading from a C-Dory 25 which served us well but we outgrew. This boat should do a much better job handling whatever the Prince William Sound throws at us.

      I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

            What is the HIN from that boat? That would tell more about the length and such, plus one of our members, Socal, has been collecting a record of Glasply HINs.

              All 28’s have the same basic hull dimensions. In 1979 the 28 was a called a 9 meter. As a marketing pitch, GP named boats by the gunwale length. Centerline length is 27’ 6 5/8” and the gunwale is 29’ 6 1/2”. 28’s are great boats, enjoy.
              The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

              1982 28' Long Cabin "Molly Brown" sweating through a long hot summer. Massive California forest fires fill our sky with smoke. SUP paddlers and kayakers transit the harbor with abandon, thinking they have the right of way over all boats.

                Welcome Aboard Kisutch,
                We bought a 28' Long Cabin about a year ago and it is a terrific boat. Mine is not a speed demon by any means. Twin Volvo 160 HP Diesels with V-Drives. Cruise comfortable at 13 Knots, Tops out about 20. Lots of room for a 28! The group on this site are very knowledgeable and helpful. Enjoy!

                    Thanks everyone. Looking forward to getting out on the water in it next spring. The hin is GPL85824K586. It's kinda weird that the first two numbers which usually indicate length are 85. Maybe it means 8.5m which would be about 28'.
                    Having it set up with twin diesels would be my ideal boat, wally. Did you do the re-power in yours or buy it that way?

                      Kisutch,
                      The previous owner repowered it about 20 years ago. It had twin gas engines previously. I was originally looking for a twin screw 26' Tolly. While with a Yacht Broker, looking at Tolly's, we walked past a 28' Glasply at the dock. She told me that it was a shame that she didn't have any of these that were currently on the market. Funny how sometimes timing works. That evening I was looking on the Yachts for sale site and boom, that same day a 28'Glasply, twin Diesels came in the market about 60 miles from my home! Saw it the next day, made an offer and bought it! Currently has only 450 hours in the diesels.

                        That's pretty cool you found a diesel 28 wally. What kind of fuel burn numbers do you get with it? I wouldn't mind exchanging some speed for longer range some day.

                          I checked it on our trip to the SanJuans and back last year. We averaged about 8 Gallons per hour. Our average cruise speed was about 14-16 knots.
