Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Chris Allan of Boatshed Essex.
The Evolution 26 is a boat which cruises well and races better. She draws a foot with the keel up, so is ideal for a shallow mooring, while preserving the sailing characteristics found on a fin keel yacht. She’s beamy giving good levels of accommodation and reasonable head room, has a large cockpit with lots of storage, and wide sidedecks providing excellent access. This model had a diesel inboard fitted in 2000 and had a survey in 2005.Register or log in to see 35 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
