    The RL28 designed by Rob Legg on Queensland's Gold Coast is the 'Maxi' of trailable yachts with 6 feet of headroom and six berths,.

    It features a hydraulically operated swing keel which is ideal for its home waters which are shallow with numerous sand banks and the 16 inch minimum draft enables the RL28 to be beached. But it is equally at home cruising the Great Barrier Reef where the shallow draft allows the craft in to explore the inlets

    Many have undertaken long voyages .. One has sailed from Cairns to Port Moresby, then on to Lae. Another has sailed from Tweed Heads to Indonesia and back to Darwin and several have sailed at least half way around Australia and, although not designed to undertake trips of such magnitude, their rugged construction and comfortable accommodation, with full headroom, leaves little to be desired in family boating.
    Internally the RL28 is built for comfort with a galley with stove, sink, generous ice box and ample fresh water storage, a folding teak dining table on top of the keel case and is fully carpeted.

    To enhance the extended cruising ability of the yacht, there are 19 separate storage compartments, shower, toilet and wash basin, and a hanging wet locker.
