It is fitted with a range of engines from 40hp to 190hp, depending on the needs of the owner - from cruising rivers and estuaries to open sea passages (the Kent 28 is CE Category B). The standard specification includes shorepower with a battery charger, pressurised hot and cold water, three batteries and many, many other items. The options list includes a range of engines and one or two larger items such as a bow-thruster and windlass. A hand built teak interior gives a warm and traditional feel.

Additional Description

There are three living areas. First, the forward cabin, which sleeps two (twin or double berth arrangements). Next, the wheelhouse, the main living area, with the helmsman's position, saloon seating, galley, table and occasional sleeping. Between the forward cabin and the wheelhouse are the heads compartment with shower and a large wardrobe. The last living area is the cockpit. With full-width folding teak doors, this area can be used as an extension of the saloon. With the optional canopy (hard-top or canvas) and canvas screens, is can also be used like a conservatory. Alternatively, with an open cockpit there is plenty of room for fishing and enjoying the sunshine.
