1988 Ericson 28-2

Long Beach, United States


"Lyrical" is a really nice example of this classic Bruce King design. She's well equipped for summer weekends and even beyond - there's even a 9' inflatable and outboard included. Powered by a Universal M-12 diesel, she comes with an electric windlass, dodger, cockpit bimini, auto pilot and more - plus the bottom was freshly painted Dec 2023. She's a clean, solid boat and she's ready to go.

A roomy cockpit with pedestal helm leads to the companionway with two teak doors and a smoked "glass" hatch. Down the interior steps the galley is to port and the large quarter berth is across to starboard. An after market Norcold refrigerator (just a few years old) is mounted to the aft end of the port settee - this could be removed if desired as the owner reports the ice box is well insulated and works very well for several nights away from the dock.

Across is the starboard settee, which converts to a double berth. The dinette table shown can be folded to the bulkhead when not in use. Moving forward the head compartment is to starboard, with a manual head, vanity and washbasin, followed by a spacious v-berth.

There is plenty of storage throughout in drawers and lockers, The sole is solid teak and holly, and the planked teak cladding on outboard surfaces offers great insulation and a classic look. There are shades/blinds for all windows.
