She is a Tough pocket motor sailor.
We have owned Josaphine just 3 seasons, but we have covered more the 2500 miles during that period.
he is a very capable cruiser with the added benefit of twin keels, which have proved extremely useful on the few occasions we have overnighted in drying harbours, such as Hayle or St Ives.
Two years ago we ventured into Scottish waters, making the long passage via the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland. We enjoyed some wonderful anchorages and magnificent scenery, venturing as far as Inveraray and Tobermory, subsequently making a long and slow retreat back to North Wales.
Last year we cruised right down to the beautiful Isles of Scilly, via Bardsey Island, Solva, Milford Haven and Padstow. The Isles of Scilly are well worth the effort of venturing out into the Atlantic Ocean. Predominately shallow water which again favours the sailing vessel drawing just 3ft 8inc and capable of taking the ground.
The LM 28, with their characteristic sheltered, internal steering gives total comfort, warmth and protection, especially suited to Scottish waters when the weather changes and the security of the wheelhouse becomes a safe haven for the helmsman and crew alike.
The Volvo D1-30 has proved more than adequate in maintaining highly respectable average speeds.
Capable of consuming a miserly 1.5 litres per hour, at 1700rpm and 5.8 knots through the water.
All in all an excellent boat for her size, truly capable of fulfilling respectable and adventurous passages, in both comfort and security. Now ready to take her new owners on a fresh adventure.
