Hard at Play | Carver 28 Riviera 28ft


Kingston, ON, CA



We have listed and sold a number of Carver 28 Rivieras andHARD AT PLAY is a good overall example of this unique model. Her owners appear to have continually improved her and she does boast two rebuilt 5.7 litre Mercruisers that were installed in 2018.

Her large cockpit with plenty of seating makes HARD AT PLAY ideal for open-air cruising and entertaining. Her cockpit features a custom dry-bar, raised seating for 360-degree visibility, and a cruising dinette. For extended cruises, she features the luxury of two private staterooms. The stateroom aft offers both a single and a double berth with a convenient vanity, as well as a hanging locker and ample storage space.

Her main cabin features a spacious U-shaped dinette lounge that that functions as two singleberths. There's a fully equipped galley with a stainless steel sink, a Ceramic-top electric stove, a dual-voltage refrigerator, a tastefully-installed toaster oven and ample counter and storage space. Her head compartment includes a large vanity and a hot shower. Her electronics arch is standard, and so is the comfortable six-foot sunlounge on her aft deck.

We have heard Riviera 28s referred to as a 40-foot boat in a 28-foot hull.HARD AT PLAY is a vessel worth considering if you are looking for a spacious pocket cruiser at a very reasonable price.



Thank you for all your work in facilitating the sale of our dad's boat. Jake and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it with the many visits, paperwork, etc. A special mention has to go out to Grant for teaching me how to fold the sails!

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
