Montgomery 28

About the vessel

This beautifully maintained 28ft Timber Montgomery Classic is a rare find and with a rich history a must to inspect. She was built in 1954 for Albert (Bert) Findlay, then commodore of the Royal Brighton Yacht Club (RBYC), primarily for fishing. Her design was based on a Nova Scotian deep-sea fishing smack. Construction was on the Maribyrong River by Montgomery Boat Builders, then famous craftsmen for timber launches and yachts. With a substantial refit completed in 2009 with over $250,000 spent on her, this vessel is for those looking for a timber classic with little maintenance.
