DRAGONFLY 28 – FAMILY CRUISER & RACER

DF 28 OVERVIEW

Dragonfly 28 is the ultimate trailerable trimaran, described by designer Jens Quorning as the ‘Swiss Army knife’ of his range; compact, versatile and multifunctional. It is our most popular model with over 200 built, and offers 5 full-size berths and standing headroom.

DF 28 is available in Touring, Sport and Performance versions. The accommodation is the same in all 3, but changes to the rig and floats create boats with quite different performance according to each owner’s wishes.

Dragonfly 28 trimaran is for the modern sailor who demands multiple roles from his boat. It’s as happy gliding up to your favourite beach for a family picnic as it is exhilarating on the race course. Separate cabins, a generous galley and an enclosed heads with marine WC all ensure your family are comfortable and have privacy when cruising.

The famous Dragonfly Swing Wing system ensures it folds quickly to reduce beam by 50% to access a single marina berth or the road trailer, operated from the cockpit and without using any tools. The kick-up centreboard and rudder allow Dragonfly 28 to float in knee-deep water to easily access your favourite beach, while huge lockers in the floats accommodate extra sails plus all your toys when cruising – inflatable paddle boards, folding bikes etc.

“For the life of me, I cannot understand why multihulls aren’t more popular in the UK. Here is a 28ft yacht that charges around at 15 knots without any effort. She is as close-winded as a monohull, she doesn’t heel more than 15 degrees and has bags of stowage”

“The fastest touring boat in the World under 30ft”

“It’s the most exhilarating sailing I’ve done since a ride on an Extreme 40 cat last year – and I enjoyed it as much”

“DF 28 was as good as I had hoped, beautifully designed and sailed very well. I am glad that I chose the Touring version, which is right for the solo-sailing I want to do”

“Even with the log reading speeds in the mid-teens, I didn’t need my oilskin trousers”

During our test sail we topped 18.7 knots without even trying – this is a seriously quick cruiser-racer”
