The Heard 28 is a replica of the Falmouth Working Boat, with a heavily built GRP hull for practicality and a comfortable cruising interior. Built in Falmouth by a traditional family run yard they retain the charm and character of the original wooden oyster dredgers and so are deservedly sought after. 'Roxanne' has been well cared for and is presented in very good condition.
