With her graceful Downeast styling and quality New England construction, the Legacy 28 remains one of the most popular boats in her class. She rides on a modified-V hull with a short keel for good tracking and a flat aft section for stability and easy planing. With a wide 9'6"" beam, the Legacy’s cockpit and helm deck combined offer seating for 8–10 passengers. Visibility from the elevated helm is excellent (note the high windshield), and a center hatch in the helm deck sole provides access to the engine compartment. The Legacy’s side decks are on the narrow side, and a full-width bench seat aft precludes a transom door. Below deck, the interior is clean and simple but extremely well finished. A convertible V-berth/dinette is forward, enclosed head/shower to starboard, and compact galley to port — good enough for a weekend cruise for two. The cabin has six feet of headroom and is finished in cherry joinery with a teak-and-holly sole. A teak swim platform was standard, and a bow thruster and teak transom was a popular option. Cruise at 22–23 knots with a single Yanmar 315hp diesel (high 20s top). Over 100 Legacy 28s were built, all with diesel power.
