The K-28 is a modified 15 square meter Skerry Cruiser, which is the smallest of the Square Meter classes. Because this design has its rudder separate from the keel, it can not be classed under the Square Meter Rule. The hull form and sail plan dimensions are within the parameters of the rule, so the boat will have the general sailing characteristics of a true 15 square meter.
In addition to the independent rudder, the K-28 differs from the Square Meter Rule requirements for 15 square meters with a self-bailing cockpit, slightly lighter mast, and lighter construction scantlings.
