I wonder if it’s just a 28 flybridge...

No..I have an original brochure of that model
The 28 flybridge is a 28 hardtop w/ a small flybridge
The 29 is a sedan

If you google the book, it's put together by Ed McKnew, along with many other marine publications. As with any massive "encyclopedia", as I have seen in my large, personal library of antique auto literature, no one author will get it all correct. There are several models he left out, and detail of each is limited at best. I would guess that manufacturer specific web sites and forums offer far more history and insight than any one book could ever hope to encompass. No offense to Mr. McKnew, but I've seen more research put into simple magazine articles.
