The F28 is the result of three decades of yacht design from the hand of Mark Fitzgerald. Mark has watched island residents of Maine come and go from the deep harbors to the shallow waters of the coastal islands for years. Prior to living in Maine there were those early influential years on the Florida coast and Bahamian Islands. Mark’s conclusion was there really isn’t a boat specific to the need of point to point coastal and island destinations. We need a Land Rover Defender on water Mark concluded… and a few years ago he set out to build one.
