My 28' Grover is now for sale.
1980 with 120 hp Lehman diesel - only 1748 original hours.
New SS shaft and Nibral wheel, 2 new 30 series batteries.
Two bilge pumps, Humminbird LCD FF, Sitex Paper machine, Raytheon Loran.
6 rod holders and outriggers
Stern controls (w/new cables) and tiller
She cruises 13kts and only burns 3.5 GPH! I use around 60 gallons of diesel for a canyon trip. There were only 50 of the 28's built...
Asking $28,500 and she's in the water now.
PM or call 631-661-4892 for info.

Anyone who is seriously interested in a good solid offshore boat, and is working with a limited budget I suggest you give Bassavant’s Grover a look over. These boats are arguably THE most capable offshore boat in this price range anywhere. I do not know Bassavant, but I know of the boat, originally owned by the Cooper family and named the “SKIMMER”, she was very rarely fished while being kept at East Islip Anglers, later sold and renamed the “OLD SQUAW.” I believe Bassavant is the 3rd. owner. I think the price he has listed is also a steal, I have the 26’ and have been offered considerably more.

Yes, Matt! I am the third owner, but the first outside the Cooper family. The "Old Squaw" was passed from father to son prior to being purchased by me.
Maybe I'll reconsider the price! lol!

Default No Grover Pics yet....

I've got a couple of shots from last spring that I could scan and convert...
No digital camera yet.
The boat also has a new DSC VHF & antenna. The cockpit (white) and transom were regelcoated last year as well.
If I make out OK with the scan, I'll post later.

Default Here's a Pic

This is from last spring. The teak has since been cleaned and Semco'd. There are currently two 28's listed on Yachtworld.com if anyone wants to take a peek.

Default "KRISTIN ANN"

Bassavant,
My boat is the one they used for most of the brochure pictures. It was the Lady Marion at the time.

Default Worked on your boat

Bass,
Good luck in your sale. Just to let you know I help build the boat with Fred & Dino back in the early years when I worked there. I had a 1978 26 Grover full teak 120 Lehman and was the first guy to canyon fish a Grover boat. Back then I had very big B....
I have a photo of a pair of 180 big eyes on the boat I will try to post them and a second shot of a 380 mako in the boat.
Grover made three very rare Grover 28s and they ran well. One had the 165 Turbo Lehman The Lady Marion, the other had a half tower with the upgraded 250 Hp Lehman and a twin screw model that went up the Hudson to a police department, that had twin Volvos. They were fun years.
