Broker's Comments

The Cardinal 26 is a little known production yacht from a South Wales manufacturer, Cardinal Craft Ltd. Designed by Keith Dawson there were less than a dozen made.
However, the quality of build is superior, as is her turn of speed, making her an ideal first family cruiser.
Her interior is much larger than you would expect from a 26 foot vessel, with a twin aft cabin and an open plan main saloon with double forward berths and two settee berths. Good heads compartment with a proper sea loo and a reasonable galley area put more ticks in the right boxes.
with the recent engine overhaul and general spring service this boat is now afloat and ready to take her new owner off to enjoy the summer.
