Default Aj-28

I have a 2008 AJ with 315 Yanmar purchased new in 2009. Mine is solid glass hull with core-cell foam below the water line. They have been built in different variations from solid to full core hulls. Finished well, nice ride. With the 315 Yanmar it cruises easily at 18-20kts and tops out at 26-27kts.
