Vancouver 28


'Ansa' is a beautifully immaculate example of a Vancouver 28. It is evident she has had the highest level of care and attention from her current owners. Ansa comes with complete history of invoices and photographs right from building point until present day.

Designed by Robert Harris the Vancouver 28 was a very popular vessel though at the time when 'Ansa' was built she was one of only 3 Vancouver 28s built with a four berth layout. The forward has two single berths with an infill to convert it to a double berth and there are also 2 single saloon berths. 'Ansa was built at Northshore Yacht Yards Ltd in 1997 and has been maintained to a very high standard ever since. The current owners bought 'Ansa' in 2000 and will be sad to see her go.
