2010 Long Island 28 Sportsman

Amsterdam, Netherlands


 - A Note on Remote Buying -

We have become skilled in seamlessly handling the "blind" purchase and delivery of European-owned Long Island Yachts to America during the pandemic (most recently with a 2010 25 Sportsman to NJ).  With English speaking staff on both sides of the Atlantic, and through video tours and conferences, we take care of the process from negotiation, through survey, to delivery to your dock. Please call for details and for client references.


Dolce Vita was delivered in 2010 to her first and current owner. She has been well-maintained ever since. She has been fresh-water stored on a boat lift in a covered private boathouse. The owner reports that expense has been spared to keep 'Dolce Vita' in pristine condition. 

The hull was repainted in the original metallic color a few seasons ago, and her Silverguard upholstery was recently renewed in a cognac color.

All the teakwork is unvarnished in fine shape.  

Dolce Vita has mainly been used for short fresh water trips, including on Lake Geneva and on Lake Maggiore. In 2019 she crossed the North Sea to London and explored the Thames River. The reliable Yanmar 260 hp diesel delivers more than enough power for those kinds of trips, and is a quiet companion when sailing at lower speeds. 

With a current replacement cost of $280,000 delivered to the US, Dolce Vita represents an excellent value to US clients looking to add a classic pocket yacht to their fleet. 


With the one-hundredth  Long Island Yacht about to splash in Europe, The Fog Warning is pleased to introduce this line of wonderful pocket yachts - from 25 to 40 feet - to the American market. 

Their 28 Sportsman - the baby of the fleet - is a perfect example of what Long Island Yacht delivers: A classic look, built with exemplary style and finish, and executed with the best of Dutch engineering. We feel she brings a rare level of elegance to the center console marketplace. 

With Yanmar and Volvo engine choices - from 195hp to 370 HP in Single and Twin engine configurations- the 28 Sportsman is designed to fit every yachting family's needs.

Her siblings - the 25 and 33 Sportsmen - fit an even wider range of needs and uses. As does their Classic series, with 25, 29, 33 and 40 foot models. 

Please contact us to hear the full story, and to understand why we passionately believe:

 "If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much!"
