Broker's Comments

The Cardinal 26 is a little known production yacht from a South Wales manufacturer. There were less than a dozen made. Her quality of build is superior, as is her turn of speed, making her an ideal 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.
She has been in the same ownership since new. This boat has been extremely well maintained and cared for by a knowledgeable owner. The interior woodwork is of a high standard.
However the windows have suffered from crazing and there is slight crazing in the gel coat in some deck areas. Overall the standard of the boat is definitely above the rest of its peers and well worth coming to view her.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
