Broker's Comments

Rarely have I seen a better designed and engineered 26ft bilge keeled yacht! The Cardinal is a quality built product from a small production builder and everywhere you look the quality shines through. Ignore her age, she has been cared for and lightly used throughout her life and a recent survey threw up few if any defects. She has an extensive inventory with many new items and is fully in commission now and immaculately presented for sale. If a very clean and tidy family cruiser is what you are looking for do not let her slip by, we don't expect her to be on our books for long.
