Broker's Comments

We are pleased to be listing this well cared for example of these highly regarded yachts. Built using Etap's famous double hull, the 26, with electric lifting keel, is considered a performing cruiser racer, capable of coastal passages and also venturing further inland in shallower waters.

This version looks to have been well maintained over the years and has benefited from investment in a number of areas from the current, careful owner. The boat has a comfortable and capable feel, with a good specification of navigation instruments and creature comforts, such as the fridge, presurrised water and shorepower sockets. The rigging is tidy and typically led aft, supporting single handed use and the engine provides plenty of power, with economy.

If you are looking for a tidy cruiser racer, with a good specification at this range, we would recommend viewing this boat. If you would like to know more or would like to organise a personal viewing, we would be delighted to hear from you.

These boat details are subject to contract.
