The Peter Duck 28, designed by Laurent Giles, is a pretty long-keeled traditional coastal cruiser. They have been cruised far and wide and have proved to be rugged and reliable. This good example of these perennial little cruisers has been carefully maintained and upgraded, including a replacement engine.
