The Morris Linda 28 is a timeless classic from the drawing board of Chuck Paine. Renowned for their sailing characteristics, Skimmer is a lovely example of the Linda and she is ready to sail away.

Skimmer has a custom interior layout, offering a more open cabin with excellent light and ventilation.  Deck hardware and sailing controls are thoughtfully laid out and allow for simple sail handling. She can be comfortably singlehanded and is also a capable family cruiser.

Skimmer is hull number 15 of the 16 Lindas that were built. The hull and deck were laid up in 1990 and the boat was first launched in 2001 following owner fit out of the interior.  This makes her a significantly newer boat than most Linda’s.

Moving forward into the saloon are settees port and starboard with the port side being a full-length sea berth.

9 stainless steel opening port lights and 1 overhead hatch provide exceptional light and ventilation.

In front of the saloon settees, separated by a partial bulkhead is the full-sized V-Berth.  The open interior allows sightlines from companionway to v-berth and gives the sense of a much larger yacht.
