A comfortable, reasonably fast cruising sailing yacht. Very beamy (11'2") with a long waterline (28'8") and generous accommodations. The sail plan provides good drive and the deck is uncluttered. Standard draft is 5'6" but shoal draft of <5' is available.

The toe rails are aluminum, the grab rails are teak and the companionway is slightly offset with teak boards. The cockpit is a spacious T-shaped with a shallow locker to starboard and a deep locker to port. The port locker provides clear access to the back of the diesel engine and fuel systems. The interior is traditional with liberal use of teak. The fold down dinette table leaves the main cabin with ample seating for meals when down and open space when up. The head has a shower and access from both the main cabin and forward cabin. All 6 berths are spacious. Opposite the head are two tall lockers for clothing. There is a convenient, forward facing navigation station to starboard and galley with stove/oven to port. The companionway stairs can be removed for easy access to the front of the engine, a 27 hp diesel [varies]. Other utilities include 12v and 110v systems, about 60 gal fresh water, 30 gal head tank, spacious icebox (some with refrigeration), pressure water and stainless sink.

A very forgiving boat for the new sailor and ample challenge for the adventurous. Loves a good wind and is dry in a white capped sea. The only shortcoming is the lack of availability as owners usually don't need to advertise when they want to part with their Aloha.
