Halmatic Pacific 28

Afternoon ladles and gentle-bens,

Got a few q's for you.

1. Where is best to look for a bare hull of the above? is it just random tinterweb surfing or is there some secret elephantesque graveyard where I can pick up a good-un?
2. Pricing, how much would a good second hand one cost or is it, how long is a piece of string?

Had a cursory look around but nothing found, this is just a general background check.

Thinking about a new project to keep me out of the house for a year or so....

I may be wrong, but I don't think they have stared disposing of m/any P28s as they are a newer design than the Artic 28.

I've no idea how many have been built, but I don't think I've ever actually seen one before, although I have heard of them. I'd suggest you'd be unlikely to find one but I may be wrong.

The vast majority of Pacs are 22' but I have seen a 40-42' cabin version. More recently they've been 24' but I doubt any 24's have come out of service yet. I saw a kevlar/carbon fibre version at Seawork last year, quick but at 400,000...

A few people have converted Arctic 28's to diesel inboard with reasonable success. Arctics tend to go for less money as not many people want the fuel bill that goes with a twin 225-300 O/B set up. Would give you something to do for a winter..or 3!

There's a guy called Phil who used to post on here who's bought & sold a few, I think I have his email somewhere if you want it.

Otherwise try here
or here

It is Folly Ribs run by Simon Dann. It's the new name for his business.

I spent a day with the Navy and they only had 22's and 24's at the training centre - where have you seen the 28's?

Cheers for all the feedback,

I've not personally seen any 28's, apart from hamble lifeboat who have two pac 28's(?)... I think.

Maybe I should look into getting a large avon with inboards... Want a good strong hull to stick twins in.... 250-350bhp.
