Sea Sprite 28 Class

The Sea Sprite 27 is a remarkable achievement in every sense. Her sweeping graceful lines make her seem like she’s in motion even when she’s dockside. But classic lines are merely show without performance. — and the 27 is at her best under sail. The full keel and unique hull configuration make for uncompromising stability, without sacrificing maneuverability. She carries a four part main sheet on a traveler for easy sheeting, inboard stays for better performance, side decks are wide and unobstructed for fast, easy access to all parts of her sailing gear, auxiliary power comes from an economical diesel, she’s rugged, and she’s as roomy and comfortable below deck as she is sleek and sassy above.

She’s bright and spacious with all the comforts of home. You’ll find the forward head with shower and vanity sink offers the luxury and privacy usually found only on much larger boats. The four opening ports and ventilated forward hatch provide cool cross-ventilation inside. The large forward berth and pull-out settee berth in the main salon are roomy, cool and comfortable on those long hot summer nights. The galley with rich teak trim and butcher block counter tops is beautiful, as well as functional. Two burner gimbaled stove, deep stainless steel sink and double insulated ice chest makes preparing meals and snacks just as easy at see as dock-side. Plus there are extra large storage areas for canned goods and cooking utensils.

The six foot head room and wide comfortable salon make for an overall roominess that will make lounging below as comfortable as your living room. The Sea Sprite 27 — remarkable inside and out, under sail and dock-side.

    I am trying to put a new roller refeeing unit on my 28, Flying Goose. Currently have what appears to be a replacement halyard on it with hardware for slightly smaller (thickness) halyard. Does anyone know the original specs on rigging for the 28?

    Thank you. Feel free to contact me directly at or by phone at 603-731-0273.

    Hello, Fellow Sea Spriters:

    My name is Mark Kellog. I have recently purchased the 1982 SS28 Halakai (ex-Ariang) from Brent Wiltshire of Stonington, Ct. I have renamed her Cotillion, and am having her shipped to Annapolis where we sail her on the Chesapeake.

    Would love to know more history of the SS28s…How many were built? How many were boat kits? Where are others on the Chesapeake Bay?

    Looking forward to finding other SS28s on the Bay and meeting their owners.

    I am looking at a 1986 model noted as the last one made. Was considering something a bit faster, wheel , wing keel, etc but fell in love with this boat. Very much like my previous Columbia 8.3. Not real familiar with how many made, what issues to look for, what is prone to be a problem. Thanks
