During my recent visit to NR last week, I discovered they are actually building a 28'er with an 8'6" beam that is easily trailered without permits. The boat pictured was for a charter service and had a tremendous amount of deck space. For those looking for an extra 2 foot and not wanting to deal with trailer permits this could be a viable option. This haul has the 20 degree deadrise and 55 degree bow entry, providing for a great ride and I'm told is a great performer with twin 150s to keep the cost down. This 28'er isn't listed as a standard model and the base price isn't much more then the 26' model.
