NOTES
The KINGS CRUISER 28 was introduced at the NY Boat show of 1955. With it's high quality, all mahogany contruction, and very reasonable price, it was a huge hit. Approx. 600 were built and sold around the world. A large number went to the US.
There was a later fiberglass version, the KINGS CRUISER 29,(introduced in 1968) and built by Ĺbo Shipyard of Finland.
