Broker’s Comments

Time and money, or rather the lack thereof, are the more common complaints in recent times and dominate the press over the past post-COVID years. Yachting is proving difficult to sell to young families; the concept of living at an angle and spending most of the weekend/holidays traveling to explore pastures new is less of an attraction than a camper van, RIB, or motorboat. Quite understandably, if you are not born with salt in your veins.

The Dragonfly 28 is really a win-win-win-win. A multihull, of course, has little heel and will sail very well, in fact, very, very well in any sort of breeze. Reaching in a good breeze at around 20–25 knots, lowering the centerboard makes her quick upwind as well. Overall speed is around halfway between a monohull and an equivalent motorboat.

Deck space of a yacht twice her size when sailing or at anchor is very important to have many places to jump off and sunbathe. Mooring costs are the immediate complaint of the multihull – but with the innovative swing-wing, her beam reduces to be equal to a similar length monohull, with the equivalent saving in mooring fees.

Her interior, albeit not as voluminous as a monohull, is still surprisingly spacious, with some clever touches and well-constructed.

And of course, she is a sailing boat, so fuel costs are really minimal.

RAGDOLL has been very lightly used; she is sensibly specified from the outset and offers the next owner a large discount on the new price. Motor Racing fans will love the Porsche ‘Gulf racing’ colors with her color-matched hulls and orange spinnaker. Lightly used, of course.

Owner’s Comments

By some margin, RAGDOLL has been the fastest, best sailing yacht we have ever owned. We will miss her, but we hardly ever have the opportunity to use her, so sell her we must. She has been very lightly used, very well looked after, covered few miles, and has never even left the Solent. It is now time for somebody else, who has time to make proper use of her, to take ownership of RAGDOLL.

Manufacturer’s Comments

The Dragonfly 28 sets the standards for leisure and flexibility on the water and on wheels. The Dragonfly 28 has been a lifelong dream of Jens Quorning, who designed and developed this complex boat with his co-designer Steen Olsen. The development took almost 2 years and is the ultimate combination of design and function.

The Dragonfly 28 is a foldable and trailer-able 28 ft. trimaran, that provides you with all the benefits and features from a trimaran on the water – allowing speeds up to 22+ knots, shallow draft and high comfort while sailing, as the boat is barely heeling.

Below deck, the boat is quite spacious and with a lot of well thought solutions, that provides volume and makes the boat very functional. The companionway ladder can be positioned in the middle for easy access from the cockpit, you can slide it to port or starboard for better access in the galley, or it can be raised to give you access to the large double berth in the aft cabin. Forward there is access to a double V-berth and the main cabin offers an easily set-up foldable berth – offering accommodation for five adults in total. All berths are full size comfortable berths of each 2 m+ long.

The Dragonfly 28 has a standing headroom of 1.85 m in the main cabin as well as a generous galley space on each side. The spacious dinette offers a nice view outside, like on a deck saloon yacht.
Stowage space is of course limited in a boat of this size, but ideal to avoid overloading. On the other hand, light, bulky objects like fenders, empty jerrycans or similar can be stowed away in the floats, each of which has an access hatch.

The Dragonfly 28 appeals to both family sailing and racing – just hit the cruising speed that makes you all smile. Compared to monohulls, a trimaran is so much more comfortable to sail. Further, you have a much longer range on the water, or you get to your destination in a shorter time.

With a draft of 45 cm only, you can anchor into any bay, jump into knee-deep water, sail the boat up on a sandy beach or even let it fall dry. You can ask your kids for their approval – they will love it! The big double trampolines offer extra deck space, and they are the perfect spot for sunbathing and sundowners.

On the trailer you can average 45 knots – launch and rig the boat yourself with a set-up time of 40 minutes. This boat offers you independence. You can launch and rig the boat without paying for lifts and you can cruise for a weekend, a week or even a season wherever you like, delivering and collecting the boat by road.

The boat is easy to sail even single handed – all in all a multifunctional multihull and an ultimate versatile performer.
